Methods for Testing and Specification (MTS) - The Testing and Test Control Notation version 3 - TTCN-3 Language Extensions: Configuration and Deployment Support

The present document defines the Configuration and Deployment Support package of TTCN-3. TTCN-3 can be used
for the specification of all types of reactive system tests over a variety of communication ports. Typical areas of
application are protocol testing (including mobile and Internet protocols), service testing (including supplementary
services), module testing, testing of APIs, etc. TTCN-3 is not restricted to conformance testing and can be used for
many other kinds of testing including interoperability, robustness, regression, system and integration testing. The
specification of test suites for physical layer protocols is outside the scope of the present document.
TTCN-3 packages are intended to define additional TTCN-3 concepts, which are not mandatory as concepts in the
TTCN-3 core language, but which are optional as part of a package which is suited for dedicated applications and/or
usages of TTCN-3.
This package defines the TTCN-3 support for static test configurations.
While the design of TTCN-3 package has taken into account the consistency of a combined usage of the core language
with a number of packages, the concrete usages of and guidelines for this package in combination with other packages
is outside the scope of the present document.

Notation version 3, as identified in ETSI ES 201 873-1 [1].

1 Scope

The present document defines the Configuration and Deployment Support package of TTCN-3. TTCN-3 can be used

for the specification of all types of reactive system tests over a variety of communication ports. Typical areas of

application are protocol testing (including mobile and Internet protocols), service testing (including supplementary

services), module testing, testing of APIs, etc. TTCN-3 is not restricted to conformance testing and can be used for

many other kinds of testing including interoperability, robustness, regression, system and integration testing. The

specification of test suites for physical layer protocols is outside the scope of the present document.

TTCN-3 packages are intended to define additional TTCN-3 concepts, which are not mandatory as concepts in the

TTCN-3 core language, but which are optional as part of a package which is suited for dedicated applications and/or

usages of TTCN-3.
This package defines the TTCN-3 support for static test configurations.

While the design of TTCN-3 package has taken into account the consistency of a combined usage of the core language

with a number of packages, the concrete usages of and guidelines for this package in combination with other packages

is outside the scope of the present document.

Foreword

This final draft ETSI Standard (ES) has been produced by ETSI Technical Committee Methods for Testing and

Specification (MTS), and is now submitted for the ETSI standards Membership Approval Procedure.

The use of underline (additional text) and strike through (deleted text) highlights the differences between base

document and extended documents.

The present document relates to the multi-part standard ETSI ES 201 873 covering the Testing and Test Control

Notation version 3, as identified in ETSI ES 201 873-1 [1].
Modal verbs terminology

In the present document "shall", "shall not", "should", "should not", "may", "need not", "will", "will not", "can" and

"cannot" are to be interpreted as described in clause 3.2 of the ETSI Drafting Rules (Verbal forms for the expression of

provisions).

"must" and "must not" are NOT allowed in ETSI deliverables except when used in direct citation.

7 Final draft ETSI ES 202 781 V1.9.1 (2022-02)
1 Scope

The present document defines the Configuration and Deployment Support package of TTCN-3. TTCN-3 can be used

for the specification of all types of reactive system tests over a variety of communication ports. Typical areas of

application are protocol testing (including mobile and Internet protocols), service testing (including supplementary

services), module testing, testing of APIs, etc. TTCN-3 is not restricted to conformance testing and can be used for

many other kinds of testing including interoperability, robustness, regression, system and integration testing. The

specification of test suites for physical layer protocols is outside the scope of the present document.

TTCN-3 packages are intended to define additional TTCN-3 concepts, which are not mandatory as concepts in the

TTCN-3 core language, but which are optional as part of a package which is suited for dedicated applications and/or

usages of TTCN-3.
This package defines the TTCN-3 support for static test configurations.

While the design of TTCN-3 package has taken into account the consistency of a combined usage of the core language

with a number of packages, the concrete usages of and guidelines for this package in combination with other packages

is outside the scope of the present document.

1 Scope

The present document defines the Configuration and Deployment Support package of TTCN-3. TTCN-3 can be used

for the specification of all types of reactive system tests over a variety of communication ports. Typical areas of

application are protocol testing (including mobile and Internet protocols), service testing (including supplementary

services), module testing, testing of APIs, etc. TTCN-3 is not restricted to conformance testing and can be used for

many other kinds of testing including interoperability, robustness, regression, system and integration testing. The

specification of test suites for physical layer protocols is outside the scope of the present document.

TTCN-3 packages are intended to define additional TTCN-3 concepts, which are not mandatory as concepts in the

TTCN-3 core language, but which are optional as part of a package which is suited for dedicated applications and/or

usages of TTCN-3.
This package defines the TTCN-3 support for static test configurations.

While the design of TTCN-3 package has taken into account the consistency of a combined usage of the core language

with a number of packages, the concrete usages of and guidelines for this package in combination with other packages

is outside the scope of the present document.
