As an effect to promote interoperability testing, we've decided to make our internal XKMS 2.0 test tool public. The tool is available now at:


Based on our XKMS 2.0 client implementation, the tool can be used to test XKMS implementations using all KISS and KRSS messages, and the results are then validated using XPath assertions.

There are currently 13 test cases implemented, and more may be added later. Some are positive tests, and other are negative (e.g., NoAuthentication test). The last set of request-response messages, in case of two-phase or async process, are captured and can be examined easily with a browser.

This is the tool, plus a schema validator,  which we have been using to test our own implementation. I have also used it to test Tommy's KRSS services (Tommy, you know the secret weapon now). It is very handy.

A bit of warning though, the tool is hosted on a very low-end machine and it has thousands visitors per day. So, be patient if you perform all tests against our own services, it is going to be slow. But please give it a try anyway if you haven't done so.
