This document is based on the W3C XML Schema Test Collection by Henry S. Thompson and Oriol Carbo.
The W3C SOAP Version 1.2 test collection is a set of tests which allow developers to test whether their code implements features defined in the SOAP Version 1.2 specification part 1 and part 2.
Its objectives are threefold:
The structure of the test suite is the following: testable assertions found in the SOAP Version 1.2 specification (part 1 and part 2) are listed, and a set of test is provided for each of these testable assertions in order to unambiguously determine whether an implementation verifies the assertion.
Each test clearly explains a scenario for how to perform the check, and states pass criteria to determine whether or not the implementation passed or failed.
The W3C expects to author only a small part of the collection -- the XML Protocol Working Group counting on Member organizations and others to contribute the majority.
To offer materials for the collection, please follow the procedure set out in the test materials license form. Please indicate that you are contributing to the SOAP Version 1.2 test collection.
