Testing and Test Control Notation version 3: TTCN-3 control interface (TCI)
|Publication Date:||1 March 2011|
This Recommendation 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. This Recommendation 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, and 9.7 present language mappings for this abstract specification to the target languages Java, ANSI C, and C++. A summary of the IDL-based interface specification is provided in Annex A.
This Recommendation is technically aligned with [ETSI 201 873-6].
