Interoperability Testing 2/27-28 2002
What? SOAP Builders Round III - Web Services Interoperability
When? 27-28 February 2002
Where? IONA's Waltham Offices -
It's been a long time since the last face-to-face meeting.
SOAPBuilders has started working on WSDL interop in earnest and
seeing as many participants have tests ready, we thought this was a
good time to call a F2F. IONA will co-host the event with Microsoft
at their Waltham, MA offices.
The overall agenda starts with a hosted dinner for whoever's in
on the night of the 26th, followed by a day of testing core WSDL
features and a common scenario on the 27th. After a hard day of
interop we will get together again for Dinner in Boston. Day two will
answer unresolved questions from day one and tackle more complex WSDL
The proposed overall testing strategy is to make sure that SOAP/WSDL
-generate wsdl's for given scenarios correctly and consume
generated by others
-consume and reuse given wsdl's
We will propose a detailed plan in the next few days, but we are
considering the following areas that were referenced most actively on
soapbuilders/wsdl lists lately:
-wsdl:import, schema import scenarios.
Rationale: Import is a critical mechanism that enables clear wsdl
authoring and services versioning/decomposition. There were several
spec interpretation issues raised on soapbuilders list (see thread
 for example) that need to be cleared through careful interop
-document/literal services with multiple schemas.
Rationale: operations with document/literal style are critical for
complex XML data exchange. There were many discussions on the list
around wire representation of document/literal messages, especially
with the use of xml types from several namespaces.
-miscellaneous ad hoc testing generated by known interop issues in
SOAP binding: wsdl referential integrity, overloaded methods.
Rationale: while soap interop testing effort matures, these local
WSDL Interop problems occur every now and then (see threads [2-3],
for example). While the agreement on their solution/spec
interpretation is reached a while ago, the only way to nail them is
to address them in our regular online testing. Draft scenarios can be
created on this f2f.
Book your flights, bring your laptop/server and a wireless card (a
WiFi WAP and wired taps to the Internet will be available for the
event) and let Dirk know you're participating by sending him an email
See you there
