OASIS releases XML DOM Level 1 conformance test
OASIS, the XML interoperability consortium, and the National Institute of Standards and Technology have added two new test suites for the XML Document Object Model (DOM) Level 1, according to an announcement.
DOM Level 1 provides a standard set of objects for representing HTML and XML documents, a standard model of how these objects can be combined and a standard interface for accessing and manipulating them. The two DOM Level 1 Conformance Test Suites were developed by NIST and submitted to OASIS for the benefit of the entire XML community, the organizations said. The suites include both ECMAScript and Java tests. The ECMAScript DOM Test Suite is interactive, providing instant pass/fail results. Developers may view the source code of the test, link to the test purposes (semantic requirements) and link to the appropriate section in the W3C DOM recommendation. The suite includes more than 800 ECMAScript tests, covering all fundamental, extended and HTML interfaces, according to OASIS.
