RE : Initial XML-based testcase definitions

Phil et als,
I probably miss something on how the WG is working.
If you implement all these WSA use cases, you will gather a lot of "good practices" on the full stack: JAX-WS/WSA/SOAP/JMS
This should be communicated to the end users thru some channel, the primer or whatever.
As far as I am concerned, this would perfectly fit my WSA needs.

So why is the mailing list insisting that WSA is off-topic?
The fact that it is normative (in the spec) or not (in the primer) is of course very important to the WG and the vendors, not so important for end users.

Objet : Initial XML-based testcase definitions

Hi everyone,
Attached is a zip file containing what I have done so far with defining testcases in a format modelled after the WS-Addressing test suite.     The main file to focus on at this point would be testcases/testcases.xml inside the zip file.    This file contains the definition of the individual testcases.   In the same directory is testcases.xslt which is used to produce HTML from the XML file.   I haven't worked all the kinks out of that yet so I haven't tried to actually process the XML file with xslt yet.    But I wanted to get this out ASAP so folks could take a look at the testcase definitions at least.      My intent would be to eventually have a set of testcases documented similar to the WS-Addressing test suite, located here:

Let me know if you have any comments on what I've done so far.
