Applying TDL in Practice: A Hands-on Tutorial

Philip Makedonski, Gusztav Adamis, Martti Käärik, Finn Kristoffersen, Xavier Zeitoun, Anthony Wiles


In this tutorial, we will showcase the application of TDL to a number of common application scenarios and use cases, such as test documentation, test design, test generation, test visualisation and round-trip engineering, by using the new reference implementation platform and related technologies. The use cases are based on current practices at ETSI and in the industry. While tool vendors are still working on commercial tool support, we will present and demonstrate how users and in-house tool-smiths can quickly build their own tools and integrated toolchains on top of TDL and the reference implementation platform to address their most urgent testing needs, streamline their workflows, and make their work more efficient. We will outline how different tools can be integrated together based on established technologies in order to cover use cases such as turning test purposes into test descriptions, reverse engineering TTCN-3 test cases into TDL test descriptions, and generating test documentation.
