Dear group members,

I added a new Testing section [1] in the wiki that describes how to setup the test environment and how to write tests for the Presentation API. As you know, we will use the Web Platform Tests Project [2] as a Test Suite for the Presentation API. I already submitted a new PR [3] with initial folder structure and IDLharness for the Presentation API. once this PR is merged in the main repository we will have an additional folder “presentation-api” in the web-platform-tests project similar to other W3C API. inside this folder we will have two subfolders “controlling-ua” and “receiving-ua” to test the Presentation API on controlling and receiving user agents. The initial version I submitted contains WebIDL tests of the Presentation API (each of the “controlling-ua” and “receiving-ua” contains a test file “idlharness.html”). After the PR is merged, you are welcomed to submit tests ;). I will share with you more details about test strategy of the Presentation API in the next days. Looking forward for your feedback and comments.

Thx,
Louay

Thx Anssi I'm also happy to take this role ;). Yes I will prepare a plan for testing and share it with the group soon. For this, I'd like to have a documentation page for testing. We can use a Wiki page or markdown file(s) on GH (we can put a pointer to it from the wiki and other places). I prefer markdown as usual ;). Next step for me is to study the Web Platform Tests project on GH [1] and prepare a plan for Presentation API tests based on it.

Regards,
Louay
