Key to the deliverables for the group is 'What test suites and tools
should the group develop?'

 

When the group was being created, it was thought that a test suite would
consist of a catalog of existing test suites that would be applicable to
mobile web devices - e.g., SVG tiny, parts of CSS, etc.  Carmelo put
together a prototype of what such a catalog could look like.  This type
of catalog may be nice to have, but it is of limited use since it
doesn't provide a way to test the device as a whole.  But, it is
something that we could produce quickly and have a deliverable early in
the WG's existence.

 

What are really needed are test suites or tools that would test the
device as a whole - not just individual pieces running on the device.
The essential first step in doing this is to have a set of requirements
for which the tests/tools would test for.  So, that is the big question
- is there a set of requirements that the WG can target or does the WG
need to develop such a specification?

 

Regards

Lynne
