Hi Phil,

This looks to be a good start.

Looking through it, and the WS-Addressing work here: http://dev.w3.org/2004/ws/addressing/testsuite/ it is starting to feel to me like we need to put together some of the other pieces that you can find with WS-Addressing.  For example, if our test cases reference features, then those feature identifiers should be tied back to the original locations in the documents, like the WS-Addressing equivalent (http://dev.w3.org/2004/ws/addressing/testsuite/features/, and http://dev.w3.org/2004/ws/addressing/testsuite/features/features.xml).

Do you think we're headed down that path?

I'm hoping you're prepared to discuss the proposed XML format tomorrow, during our weekly call?

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: http://dev.w3.org/2004/ws/addressing/testsuite/testcases/

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