WebDAV Face-to-Face Interoperability Testing Event

Santa Cruz, California
September 9-11, 2002, 9AM-6:30PM
Baskin Engineering Bldg., University of California, Santa Cruz

The goal of the WebDAV Interoperability Testing Event is to gather together, in one physical location, developers and testers of WebDAV/DASL/DeltaV/ACL clients and servers so they can exercise as many client/server pairs as possible. Ideally, all functionality of each client will be tested against every server. This will quickly surface interoperability problems. Once identified, these problems can sometimes be fixed on the spot (if developers have brought source code), or can be targeted for resolution in the Draft Standard (i.e., revised) version of RFC 2518.

A similar WebDAV interop event was held last year, and was very successful. They are an extremely efficient way to do interoperability testing against a broad array of clients and servers, allowing problems to be quickly identified and resolved. Invariably, the net result of an interoperability testing event is a set of clients and servers that work together better, offering better value for end-users.

Concurrent with the interoperability testing event, an Interim WebDAV Working Group Meeting will also be held from 3-6PM on September 9 and 10, and from 9AM to 12noon on September 11. The meeting location is room BE 330, in the Baskin Engineering Bldg. on UC Santa Cruz (the same building as the interoperability testing event).
