Title: Conformance Testing and Specification Management
Published: June 01, 1996
Abstract: This is the final report for the second year of a joint project between the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and SEMATECH. It presents the results from investigation in two areas that were proposed in the first year report: conformance testing and specification management. In conformance testing, a number of technologies are reviewed with special emphasis on Java and the possibility of platform-independent testing. For specification management, technologies were reviewed for ways to use a single format with multiple uses and multiple distribution formats. This task looked at pragmatic solutions to the problem of maintaining complex documents with multiple uses through combinations of readily available software.
