TestBATN - a scenario based test platform for conformance and interoperability testing

Namlı, Tuncay
Today, interoperability is the major challenge for e-Business and e-Government domains. The fundamental solution is the standardization in different levels of business-to-business interactions. However publishing standards alone are not enough to assure interoperability between products of different vendors. In this respect, testing and certification activities are very important to promote standard adoption, validate conformance and interoperability of the products and maintain correct information exchange. In e-Business collaborations, standards need to address different layers of interoperability stack; communication layer, business document layer and business process layer. Although there have been conformance and interoperability testing tools and initiatives for each one of these categories, there is currently no support for testing an integration of the above within a test scenario which is similar to real life use cases. Together with the integration of different layers of testing, testing process should be automated so that test case execution can be done at low cost, and repeated if required. In this theses, a highly adaptable and flexible Test Execution Model and a complementary XML based Test Description Language consisting of high level test constructs which can handle or simulate different parts or layers of the interoperability stack is designed. The computer interpretable test description language allow dynamic set up of test cases and provides flexibility to design, modify, maintain and extend the test functionality in contrast to a priori designed and hard coded test cases. The work presented in this thesis is a part of the TestBATN system supported by TUBITAK, TEYDEB Project No: 7070191.


Computational platform for predicting lifetime system reliability profiles for different structure types in a network
Akgül, Ferhat (2004-01-01)
This paper presents a computational platform for predicting the lifetime system reliability profiles for different structure types located in an existing network. The computational platform has the capability to incorporate time-variant live load and resistance models. Following a review of the theoretical basis, the overall architecture of the computational platform is described. Finally, numerical examples of three existing bridges (i.e., a steel, a prestressed concrete, and a hybrid steel-concrete bridge...
A conformance and interoperability test suite for Turkey’s National Health Information System (NHIS) and an interactive test control and monitoring environment
Sınacı, Ali Anıl; Doğaç, Asuman; Department of Computer Engineering (2009)
Conformance to standards and interoperability is a major challenge of today`s applications in all domains. Several standards have been developed and some are still under development to address the various layers in the interoperability stack. Conformance and interoperability testing involves checking whether the applications conform to the standards so that they can interoperate with other conformant systems. Only through testing, correct information exchange among applications can be guaranteed. National H...
Automated test code generation and execution system for Web
İşler, Süleyman Fatih; Betin Can, Aysu; Department of Information Systems (2015)
With the development of Web 2.0, the trend in application development has moved from desktop applications towards to web applications. Although there are different ways of testing web applications such as record/replay systems and manual testing, the common practice of web testing is accomplished by manually implementing test script codes from test cases written in software test documents and then run them on test automation tools. Implementation of test script codes is time-consuming process and also requi...
A knowledge based product line for semantic modeling of web service families
Orhan, Umut; Doğru, Ali Hikmet; Department of Computer Engineering (2008)
Some mechanisms to enable an effective transition from domain models to web service descriptions are developed. The introduced domain modeling support provides verification and correction on the customization part. An automated mapping mechanism from the domain model to web service ontologies is also developed. The proposed approach is based on Feature-Oriented Domain Analysis (FODA), Semantic Web technologies and ebXML Business Process Specification Schema (ebBP). Major contributions of this work are the c...
Implementing KQML agent communication language for multiagent simulation architectures on HLA
Göktürk, Erek; Polat, Faruk; Department of Computer Engineering (2003)
Multiagent simulation is gaining popularity due to its intuitiveness and ability in coping with domain complexity. HLA, being a distributed simulation architecture standard, is a good candidate for implementing a multiagent simulation infrastructure on, provided that agent communication can be implemented. HLA, being a standard designed towards a wide coverage of simulation system architectures and styles, is not an easy system to master. In this thesis, an abstraction layer called the Federate Abstraction ...
