It has been quiet for too long on this site. There are a few reasons for that.

One reason is that instead of redefining and promoting the interfaces, We have been working on tools just to see if the definitions are usable at all.

This resulted in 2 other opensource projects, called Testium and Simple Test Result Tool. Testium is a Test Execution Tool written in java and the Simple Test Result Tool is a Reporting Tool based on XSL and PHP. We hope to release the first versions of both tools soon.

As a side effect, the tools resulted in API's for the used interfaces that will be published soon as well.

An other reason is that we have switched to a more reliable web-hosting provider. After changing the testinginterfaces.com domain to the more appropriate testtoolinterfaces.com, we had to change the domain once more from .com to .org. I hope TestToolInterfaces.org will remain in operation for a while and that the downtimes are history.

Please change your links and bookmarks to www.testtoolinterfaces.org if you have not already done so.

On June 30th 2008, the idea of standardizing test tool interfaces was presented by Arjan on the spring event of the Dutch Test organization TestNet. It was well received and can be seen as the kick-off of publicizing the first standards to a broad audience. The sheets can be found here and illustrates the idea and thoughts behind standarized test tool interfaces very well.

We plan to add the notes of his speech as well.

If you have any questions, let us know (via contact).

TestingInterfaces.com is live! The domain was reserved a while ago already, but now the first serious articles are placed and I'm actively referring to this site. Gradually I will add more articles and functionality as work progresses. I'm planning to add a forum and functionality to leave comments on each article. And of course the Interfaces itself will be worked out in more detail.
