Currently there are no
explicit guidelines on how to test the compliance of a FIPA implementation to
the FIPA specifications. The requirements for FIPA compliance include the
fundamental ability for agents to communicate, and for agents to act
appropriately for each ACL message received. This workplan aims to form the
first set of compliance tests as detailed below. Future workplans are envisaged
to extend the coverage of the tests for additional FIPA specifications.
the specifications of the compliance test for the following FIPA specifications:
MTP for IIOP
MTP for HTTP
Communication Language Parameters
FIPA specification describing the compliance test for each specification listed.
external to FIPA
Some relationships with agentcities and JAS are expected.
The agentcities testsuite document.
The FIPA bakeoff report.
for Work and Milestones:
All the existing FIPA specifications. In particular,
the ACL and its structure, the encodings, the content languages, the interaction
protocols, the message transport service and the defined transport protocols,
and the agent management.
