Re: AltovaXML bugs? (and other engines)
Unfortunately the W3C test suite is available to members only, largely because there is not complete traceability of the origin of all the tests.
From: Scott Trenda [mailto:Scott.Trenda@xxxxxxxx]
Just a thought (maybe someone's done it already)... is there some sort of Acid test for XSLT processors? I think there are conformance test packages available from W3C, but it's usually the experienced XSLT developers who know how best to break an XSLT engine. It'd be nice to have such a test for both XSLT 1.0 and XSLT 2.0, since we could know exactly how and where the different XSLT engines fail.
Is there an established standard or pattern or best practice for coding tests? A framework you would just drop a new test in so it becomes part of the test suite?
Maybe the W3C has come up with such a framework and is willing to make it a public resource for the advancement of the Good Cause while continuing, of course, to withhold the test suite due to its partly shady, or intraceable, origins?
