[ANN] W3C XML Query WG and XSL WG Full Text Test Suite

Jim Melton-3

The W3C's XML Query Working Group and XSL Working Group are pleased to announce the availability of version 1.0.0 of the Query and XPath Full Text 1.0 Test Suite (XQFTTS) at http://dev.w3.org/2007/xpath-full-text-10-test-suite/.

XQFTTS 1.0.0 is the initial public release of this test suite.  This release contains approximately 650 XQuery and XPath Full Text 1.0 tests embedded into either XQuery 1.0 expressions or XPath 2.0 expressions.  We encourage implementors of XQuery and XPath Full Text to run XQFTTS 1.0.0 and send us their implementation reports.  Implementors who are familiar with the XML Query Test Suite (XQTS) found at http://www.w3.org/XML/Query/test-suite/ will discover that the mechanisms used to run the two test suites are substantially identical.  XQFTTS 1.0.0 does not contain any tests expressed in the XML syntax, known as XQueryX.  A follow-up release of XQFTTS is planned for the very near future that adds the XQueryX tests to the existing tests.

We look forward to receiving reports that demonstrate sufficient implementation experience to enable us to transition to Proposed Recommendation in the third quarter or fourth quarter of 2009.  We will continue to maintain and enhance the test suite after our transition to Proposed Recommendation.
