Testing for Conformance of Parallel Programming Pattern Languages
This paper reports on the project being run by TUG and IMAG, aimed at reducing the volume of tests required to exercise parallel programming language compilers and libraries. The idea is to use the ISO STEP standard scheme for conformance testing of software products. A detailed example illustrating the ongoing work is presented.
