scribenick: JibberJim
14:11:20 [JibberJim]
SAZ: TF launched 3 weeks ago - setting up tools to get to create langs, and working on a test description language - but that's beyond scope really - mainly we want to use one and got a candidate in
14:11:33 [JibberJim]
SAZ: Test Case Description from Bentoweb project.
14:11:43 [JibberJim]
SAZ: major issue is that it's XML based rather than RDF
14:12:09 [JibberJim]
SAZ: leaning towards just using and at a later stage hoping some RDF appears and we could transition
14:12:42 [shadi]
14:13:24 [JibberJim]
SAZ:Anyone in ER have a concern with just using XML?
14:16:35 [JibberJim]
JK: Concerned about using RDF tools if there refering to an XML test description
14:18:43 [shadi]

14:22:11 [shadi]
saz: no objections to TestableStatement (and TestRequirement or TestCase) so far
14:26:12 [JimJibber]
JimJibber has joined #er
14:26:48 [shadi]
saz: explains history of TestableStatement
14:27:48 [shadi]
cv: the hierarchy of TestRequirement and TestCase is not clear
14:28:15 [JimJibber]
JimJibber has joined #er
14:29:09 [shadi]
jk: EARL is not meant to record this hierarchy, can use dc:hasPart or dc:isPartOf
14:29:23 [Zakim]
14:29:34 [JimJibber]
zakim, ipcaller is Jim
14:29:34 [Zakim]
+Jim; got it
14:30:03 [shadi]
cv: why do we need the TestableStatement super class?
14:33:13 [shadi]
jk: to differentiate the two use cases
14:33:47 [shadi]
cv: there is a piece of the puzzle missing
14:34:52 [shadi]
saz: yes, a test description language but that is outside EARL
14:44:45 [shadi]
jk: having owl:oneOf restriction means either TestRequirement or TestCase but TestableStatement
14:44:54 [shadi]
...might be too restrictive
14:45:55 [Zakim]
14:45:58 [shadi]
saz: agree
14:47:34 [shadi]
saz: maybe a restriction of maxCardinality=1 for TestableStatement makes more sense
14:47:40 [shadi]
jk: i'd use that

14:52:31 [JimJibber]
JimJibber has joined #er
14:54:04 [Zakim]
14:55:14 [shadi]
jl: fuzzy pointers and HTML pointers are the same thing
14:56:45 [shadi]
