OASIS and NIST have announced the addition of "two new test suites for the XML Document Object Model (DOM) Level 1 to the growing collection of OASIS Conformance Tests for XML Technologies. DOM Level 1 provides a standard set of objects for representing HTML and XML documents, a standard model of how these objects can be combined and a standard interface for accessing and manipulating them. The two DOM Level 1 Conformance Test Suites were developed by NIST and submitted to OASIS for the benefit of the entire XML community. They include both ECMAScript and Java tests. The ECMAScript DOM Test Suite is interactive, providing instant pass/fail results. Developers may view the source code of the test, link to the test purposes (semantic requirements) and link to the appropriate section in the W3C DOM Recommendation. The suite includes more than 800 ECMAScript tests, covering all fundamental, extended and HTML interfaces. The Java DOM Test Suite also contains more than 200 tests, covering all fundamental and extended interfaces. The tests are organized into a set of classes, one for each interface. The suite includes a test driver that accepts implementations, interfaces and output files." NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) is also collaborating with W3C in the development of DOM Conformance Test Suites.
From NIST: "NIST has developed tests for both the ECMAScript and Java bindings of the DOM Level 1 Recommendation. We are currently working on updating these tests to Level 2 status. The updated version will be submitted to the DOM WG for inclusion in their test suite effort.
The OASIS Interoperability & Conformance Committee "provides a forum where interested parties can discuss issues that are pertinent to the interoperability and conformance of structured information standards. The objective of the committee is to share our conformance knowledge and experience with each other, with the OASIS membership and committees, and with the public through discussions, white papers, and guidance documents."
