Announcements • Harmonized PRL (PD/QD/RD/MP/AF) Tests Are Drafted • No objections were received and are now candidates for “final” status • Future changes are possible, but will be incorporated into the next phase of test cases design and implementation • We will do a ‘round-the-room next on the status • Vote next week to consider the harmonized Phase I test specs final • RFP • Has 5 respondents • Bidder interviews have been conducted top few vendors • Analysis is nearing completion

Harmonization Phases Unified Test Process – Has Been Proposed
Phase II Work Plan: Direct Test Specs * More detailed status will be posted on the Wiki
Phase III Work Plan: Secondary Specs • Secondary Methods, Service Discovery, & Provider Directories
‘round-the-room What are your thoughts about the phased approach for harmonization? Do you object to the proposed approach?
Test Case Execution • Manual: Step-by-step instructions are included in written test packages • Draft tracking worksheet for execution methods • What tests are the best candidates for tooling? • SOAP UI as a component, review different uses of it • Other utilities/components to research? • What about the conformance checklists?
Architecture Review • Refresh on Reference Toolkit concept • Check-in on feedback to high-level Toolkit architecture • Assumptions on prioritization at utility level • Message simulation for High test cases in PD/QD/RD • Proof of concept of lightweight orchestration (BDD layer) • Integration of NIST content tools (c32 then CCDA) • Ideas/volunteers for utilities, modules, or approaches? • Definition of “done” • Metrics for SOAP UI scripts
Open Discussion Other topics?
