Topic: Mobile Web Test Suites survey and re-packaging
16:05:18 [dom]
-> http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-mwts/2007Feb/att-0029/mwi-test-framework.html Carmelo's test suite framework
16:05:31 [dom]
Carmelo: conceived a few years ago, modified along time
16:05:40 [dom]
... used with XSLT, XML Query
16:05:48 [dom]
... modified a bit more to use in our effort
16:06:00 [dom]
... not complete, looking for feedback
16:06:14 [dom]
... Basically, it defines an XML file that describe a collection of test suites
16:06:31 [dom]
... each "test-collections" element describes a test suite
16:06:44 [dom]
... in our case, a test-collection element could point to the CSS MP test suite
16:07:19 [dom]
... each test-collection can have one or many "test-group"(s), with a URL, a title and a description
16:08:13 [dom]
... within each test group, one or more test-case that uniquely identifies a test case, with a name, a scenario (e.g. negative test, error triggering test, comparison test, visual test)
16:08:31 [dom]
... a description, a spec-citation refering back to the spec
16:09:14 [dom]
... possibly input/output files depending on the test
16:09:34 [dom]
... (cf the example at the end of the document)
16:09:41 [dom]
... Looking for feedback
16:11:25 [dom]
... This would allow us to track a comprehensive list of tests
16:11:41 [dom]
... There is a schema associated with that format that allows validation
16:11:48 [dom]
... and there is an XSLT to render it in HTML
16:12:41 [dom]
ACTION: Carmelo to send his multi-test suite cataloguing system to the mailing list [recorded in http://www.w3.org/2007/02/06-mwts-minutes.html#action06] [DONE]
16:13:38 [dom]
ACTION: Carmelo to send a pointer to how his framework is used in XML Query test suite
16:14:31 [dom]
Dmitri: is this XML format expansible to contain link to results coming out of test execution?
16:14:40 [dom]
s/expansible/extensible/
16:15:22 [dom]
Carmelo: the XML file would link to test output files
16:16:20 [dom]
Dmitri: we may need more extensibility to record more data (e.g. on which devices it applies)
16:16:26 [dom]
... but looks good for now
16:17:14 [dom]
ACTION: Allen to explore the possibility to have a wrapper for the test suites [recorded in http://www.w3.org/2007/02/27-mwts-minutes.html#action09] [ONGOING]
16:21:45 [dom]
ACTION: Dom to work on prototype of test navigation/results recording based on Allen's proposal
16:24:42 [carmelo]
Carmelo - Described the cataloguing framework
16:25:14 [dom]
Regrets+ Agenda
16:25:23 [carmelo]
DOM had questions on tools available and possible use within our group.
16:25:45 [carmelo]
Dimitri had a question on expected output and how to access them
16:26:19 [carmelo]
Allen proposed and described a possible schema to navigate the test suite
16:26:27 [carmelo]
based on Tests ID's
16:26:44 [dom]
ACTION: Dom to try and get in touch with user agent developers (OpenWave and Nokia)
16:28:17 [dom]
ACTION: Dom to run DOM test suites on his phones [recorded in http://www.w3.org/2007/02/06-mwts-minutes.html#action02] [DONE]
16:28:24 [carmelo]
DOM had very little success with DOM
16:29:34 [dom]
-> http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-mwts/2007Mar/0001.html Getting the DOM Test suite to work on mobile devices
16:31:48 [dom]
ACTION: Carmelo to look into transforming the XML into javascript files for making them easier to run on mobile devices
16:32:41 [carmelo]
Carmelo explained a bit how the DOM test suite is organized (interms of XML instances)
16:34:07 [dom]
ACTION: Till to get feedback from his Opera colleagues on making the Javascript more usable on mobile devices
16:35:58 [dom]
ACTION: till to review the WCSS test suite [recorded in http://www.w3.org/2007/02/27-mwts-minutes.html#action01] [DONE]
16:36:06 [dom]
-> http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-mwts/2007Mar/0002.html WCSS test suite survey from Till
16:36:56 [dom]
q+ to ask for a comparison with the CSS Mobile Profile test suite
16:39:24 [dom]
ack dom
16:39:24 [Zakim]
dom, you wanted to ask for a comparison with the CSS Mobile Profile test suite
16:39:27 [carmelo]
Till - Explained analisys of CSS Test Suite. He ran on his phone
16:39:42 [carmelo]
and found it very well structeure and well put together.
16:40:14 [carmelo]
High quality test suite.
16:40:29 [dom]
Till: WCSS test suite quite better than CSS Mobile Profile test suite; coverage is 98% (vs ~80% for CSS MP) and of high quality
16:40:37 [dom]
... relies less on font tricks or colors
16:41:55 [dom]
... I think we should focus on the WCSS test suite - political matters aside
16:42:31 [dom]
ACTION: Carmelo to take a closer look at CSS for coverage [recorded in http://www.w3.org/2007/02/06-mwts-minutes.html#action07] [ONGOING]

16:44:59 [dom]
-> http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Member/member-mwts/2007Mar/0000.html Cooperating on improving the CSS MP Test Suite?
16:46:37 [dom]
Dom: how should we proceed, given Till's analysis?
16:46:51 [dom]
Till: I think we're interested in both
16:47:07 [dom]
... I don't think we should forget CSS MP, but maybe not put too much effort in it
16:48:04 [dom]
Dom: more to the point, would you be willing to put some of your time in improving this test suite?
16:48:22 [dom]
Till: would be willing to, but it's not clear this is the way to go
16:48:40 [dom]
... maybe we should survey the group on what is the proper way to go
16:49:28 [dom]
Dom: maybe bind that to the feedback we get from other ua dev?
16:49:58 [dom]
ACTION: Dom to ask for feedback on WCSS vs CSS MP Test Suite?
