Methods for Testing and Specification (MTS); The Testing and Test Control Notation version 3; TTCN-3 Language Extensions: Extended TRI
|Publication Date:||1 May 2020|
The present document defines the Extended TRI package of TTCN-3. TTCN-3 can be used for the specification of all types of reactive system tests over a variety of communication ports. Typical areas of application are protocol testing (including mobile and Internet protocols), service testing (including supplementary services), module testing, testing of CORBA based platforms, APIs, etc. TTCN-3 is not restricted to conformance testing and can be used for many other kinds of testing including interoperability, robustness, regression, system and integration testing. The specification of test suites for physical layer protocols is outside the scope of the present document.
TTCN-3 packages are intended to define additional TTCN-3 concepts, which are not mandatory as concepts in the TTCN-3 core language or in its interfaces TRI and TCI, but which are optional as part of a package which is suited for dedicated applications and/or usages of TTCN-3.
This package defines a more efficient handling of software values by a version of TRI, that does not use binary encoded messages for the communication with the SUT, but uses the values as they are; meaning e.g. that software objects or serialized data can be passed directly between the SUT and the TE.
While the design of TTCN-3 package has taken into account the consistency of a combined usage of the core language with a number of packages, the concrete usages of and guidelines for this package in combination with other packages is outside the scope of the present document.
