The OASIS XML Conformance Test Suite can be downloaded from the OASIS Web site at http://www.oasis-open.org/commit tees/xmltest/testsuite.htm.

The OASIS XML Conformance Test Suite incorporates tests developed by the OASIS technical committee with those contributed by Sun Microsystems, Fuji Xerox Information Systems, and James Clark. Utilizing an approach defined by committee members G. Ken Holman (Crane Softwrights, Ltd.), Mary Brady (NIST), and Dave Brownell (formerly of Sun Microsystems), NIST staff built the test suite as it currently exists. Each set of contributed tests were validated against a set of locally installed parsers and augmented with test descriptions and pointers to the specific production under test, ensuring that each test was well-grounded in the recommendation. This information was encapsulated in an XML test description file for each set of tests, and then generated into a report using the supplied XSL stylesheets.

"We've put together the most comprehensive test suite available, covering much of the XML 1. …
