Session Abstract

Different test frameworks have very different approaches to tests, including when they run, how they are run, what data formats are used, and what the various fields are that control test operation and results analysis. Recently, Tim has conducted a survey of different "test definitions", in an attempt to cull best practices and search for commonality that will lead to enhanced interoperability between test systems. In this session, Tim will present the results of his survey, and make suggestions for areas where tests could be harmonized, and used in common between Fuego and Lava - two test systems with very different approaches.
