Methods for Testing and Specification (MTS) - The Testing and Test Control Notation version 3 - Part 5: TTCN-3 Runtime Interface (TRI)

The present document provides the specification of the runtime interface for TTCN-3 test system implementations. The
TTCN-3 Runtime Interface provides a standardized adaptation for timing and communication of a test system to a
particular processing platform and the system under test, respectively. The present document defines the interface as a
set of operations independent of target language.
The interface is defined to be compatible with the TTCN-3 standard (see ETSI ES 201 873-1 [2]). The present
document uses the CORBA Interface Definition Language (IDL) to specify the TRI completely. Clauses 6, 7 and 8
present language mappings for this abstract specification to the target languages JavaTM, ANSI C, and C++. A summary
of the IDL based interface specification is provided in annex A.
NOTE: JavaTM is the trade name of a programming language developed by Oracle Corporation. This information
is given for the convenience of users of the present document and does not constitute an endorsement by
ETSI of the programming language named. Equivalent programming languages may be used if they can
be shown to lead to the same results.

Metode za preskušanje in specificiranje (MTS) - 3. različica zapisa preskušanja in krmiljenja preskusov - 5. del: Vmesnik za čas izvajanja (TRI) TTCN-3

Ta dokument določa specificiranje vmesnika za čas izvajanja za preskusne izvedbe sistema TTCN-3. Vmesnik za čas izvajanja TTCN-3 zagotavlja standardizirano prilagoditev za časovni razpored in komunikacijo preskusnega sistema v povezavi z določeno obdelovalno platformo ter sistemom za preskušanje. V tem dokumentu je vmesnik opredeljen kot niz postopkov, neodvisnih od ciljnega jezika.
Vmesnik je opredeljen kot združljiv s standardom TTCN-3 (glej ETSI ES 201 873-1 [2]). Za popolno določitev TRI je v tem dokumentu uporabljen jezik za definicijo vmesnikov (IDL) CORBA. V točkah 6, 7 in 8 so predstavljene jezikovne preslikave za to abstraktno specificiranje v ciljne jezike Java™, ANSI C in C++. Povzetek specifikacij vmesnikov na osnovi IDL je podan v dodatku A.
OPOMBA: Java™ je tržno ime programskega jezika, ki ga je razvila družba Oracle Corporation. Te informacije so navedene za boljše razumevanje standarda s strani uporabnikov in ne pomenijo, da ETSI podpira imenovani programski jezik. Uporabljajo se lahko enakovredni programski jeziki, ki zagotavljajo enake rezultate.
