ANN: SCXML Test Framework project


I have just released a new SCXML-related project, the SCXML Test
Framework. This project began as a testing harness for the
JavaScript-based SCXML implementation SCION, but I moved it out into
its own project and generalized it.

In a nutshell, the goal of the project is to develop tools to
automatically check the correctness of SCXML implementations. It can
be used for automated testing of SCXML interpreters in development, or
to check the conformance of an interpreter to a particular Statechart
semantics. The test cases included with the project are written for
SCION semantics, but the project could be forked, and the included
test cases could be modified to support the semantics specified in the
step algorithm of the SCXML specification.

The test framework is intended to be language-agnostic, so I am hoping
other SCXML implementations will consider adopting it as a part of
their standard testing apparatus.
