Abstract

Interoperability of software systems is a critical, ever-increasing requirement in software industry. Conformance testing is needed to assure conformance of software and interfaces to standards and other specifications. In this chapter we shortly refer to what has been done in conformance testing around the world and in Finland. Also, testability requirements for the specifications utilized in conformance testing are proposed and test-case derivation from different kinds of specifications is examined. Furthermore, we present a conformance-testing environment for the healthcare domain, developed in an OpenTE project, consisting of different service-specific and shared testing services. In our testing environment testing is performed against open interfaces, and test cases can, for example, be in XML (extensible markup language) or CDA R2 (clinical document architecture, Release 2) form.
