XML Query Test Suite version 0.8.6

Andrew Eisenberg-2

The XML Query Working Group and the XSL Working Group would like to announce the availability of version 0.8.6 of the XML Query Test Suite (XQTS) at http://www.w3.org/XML/Query/test-suite/.

XQTS 0.8.6 contains about 96% of the tests that will exist when the test suite has been completed. We have added tests for the Module Import, Schema Import, and External Variable Reference features in this release. We have begun to make changes to the test suite based on CR issues that have been resolved (identified in our release notes).

We encourage implementors to build their test harnesses and to provide feedback to the XML Query Working Group.  We have received the results of running XQTS with three implementations of XQuery: Saxon-SA, xq2xsl, and X-Hive/DB. A report that reflects these results is available from our web page.

Re: XML Query Test Suite version 0.8.6

I haven't found a human-readable specification of the format of
the XQTSCatalog.xml file.  The XQTSCatalog.xsd file is obviously
not a substitute - it barely even contains any comments.
The "Guidelines" file talks about "test suite customization"
but it doesn't explain the actual catalog format which presumably
is what I need to harness.

Of course I could reverse-engineer the format, but it seems silly
that I would have to.  Have I missed something?

I agree, I've felt this need as well. I took the liberty to open this as an
enchancement request:

No, you raise a valid point. The catalog format has grown incrementally over the last year. We've spent all of our labor getting the test cases in place and creating the couple of guideline documents.


About the best I can offer in the near future will be a better commented XQTSCatalog.xsd file.
