Testing and Test Control Notation version 3: TTCN-3 control interface (TCI)
|Publication Date:||1 October 2020|
Recommendation ITU-T Z.166 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 of [ETSI ES 201 873-6 V4.12.1]). The interface definition uses the CORBA interface definition language (IDL) to specify the TCI completely. Clauses 8, 9 and 10 of [ETSI ES 201 873-6 V4.12.1] present language mappings for this abstract specification to the target languages Java, ANSI C, and C++.
