Methods for Testing and Specification (MTS); The Testing and Test Control Notation version 3; Part 6: TTCN-3 Control Interface (TCI)
|Publication Date:||1 May 2020|
The present document specifies the control interfaces for TTCN-3 test system implementations. The TTCN-3 Control Interfaces provide a standardized adaptation for management, test component handling and encoding/decoding of a test system to a particular test platform. The present document defines the interfaces as a set of operations independent of a target language.
The interfaces are defined to be compatible with the TTCN-3 standard (see clause 2). The interface definition uses the CORBA Interface Definition Language (IDL) to specify the TCI completely. Clauses 8, 9, 10, 11 and 12 present language mappings for this abstract specification to the target languages Java™, ANSI C, C++, XML and C#. A summary of the IDL-based interface specification is provided in annex A.
NOTE: Java™ is the trade name of a programming language developed by Oracle Corporation. This information is given for the convenience of users of the present document and does not constitute an endorsement by ETSI of the programming language named. Equivalent programming languages may be used if they can be shown to lead to the same results.
