Version 1.0.0 of a Solution Architecture Template (SAT) on interoperability testing has been just released. This template describes how to integrate the ISA² Test Bed in the existing IT environment. Specifically, it describes the available resources, services and usage options and highlights what is needed to get started.

Test Bed

The template provides solution architects with a blueprint to include the ISA² Test Bed service in their solution to address their interoperability and conformance testing needs.

The SAT is a testing-focused extension on the European Interoperability Reference Architecture (EIRA).

The ISA² Interoperability Test Bed is a platform providing interoperability and conformance testing. It is a reusable service for:

  • Simulation of a web service for clients to test against;
  • Validation of content sent or received through various channels;
  • Conformance testing against a message exchange protocol;
  • Verification of a complex message exchange as one complete conversation.

The Test Bed allows users to execute predefined test cases on their systems. Test results are provided in a standardised, machine-readable format. The Test Bed also offers a test registry and repository (TRR) to store test artefacts (assertions, test cases, validation schemas, etc.) and compile test services (validation services, simulator services, etc.).        

The Test Bed is available as a cloud-based service. Alternatively, it can be installed and run at users' premises.
