Abstract

Java and the World Wide Web are used as the basis of a tool that tests conformance with the InteroperableMessage Passing Interface communication protocol. The user accesses the system through a Java applet thatActs as the interface to a test server that is also written in Java. Test scenarios are expressed in scripts that are Interpreted by a C-based interpreter. This interpreter is integrated with the test server using the Java Native Interface. A separate C program, also including the test script interpreter, is linked to the communication Library to be tested. This program executes in coordination with the Java-based server to test the protocol. ThisFramework has proven easy to implement, effective, and flexible; it may be useful in other software testing systems.
