Interoperability testing

Part 2

The goal of interoperability testing proves the end to end functionality between two communicating systems required by the standard on which the systems are based.

The lack of interoperability testing causes:

  • Loss of data
  • Unreliable performance
  • Unreliable operation
  • Low maintainability
  • Incorrect operation

The different software levels in interoperability testing is

  • Physical interoperability
  • Data-type interoperability
  • Specific –level interoperability
  • Semantic interoperability

The objectives of this interoperability testing is

  • Determining the perfect and accurate data passed between the software

Applications.

  • Conform proper timing and coordination of functions which exists between the applications.

For example developing the test transactions and verifying the process in one application or entering the transaction in production environment or verifying the new changes of the parameters in the system. The main disadvantage is time consuming that is cost may be high if the system is run several times.

The challenges faced by interoperability testing:

  • Determining the basic root and cause in depth of the defects
  • The accurate measurement of any application results
  • The scalability and flexibility of the testing
  • Complex features in the network
  • Testing all the equipments
  • Creating the documents
  • Inappropriate requirements

The difference between the interoperability testing and conformance testing is in interoperability testing, it makes certain that the application or software will interoperate with other without any certified issues. Whereas in conformance testing it makes sure that the compliance of the product is required for the standard and specification.

Interoperability testing is done because it ensures the end-end service facility for more products for different sellers. The software should be able to communicate with other components without any compatible issues.

The different test strategies of interoperability testing is

  • Connecting two or more components from different sellers
  • Check connection between the devices
  • Check if the device can send or receive the network packets
  • If result is ok then go for testing next result.

  1. 1. Interoperability testing: Testing is performed to check the interaction between different system components. It is a process where one application interacts with another. It involves testing the application or software program is compatible with other environments and encourage the cross-functionality.
    2. Types of Interoperatibilty:
    1. Syntactic interoperatibility: Ex: In health care industry it permits the “uniform movement” of health data from system to system where the clinical or operational purpose and meaning of the data is preserved and unaltered.”
    Semantic interoperatibility: Ex: Electronic invoices sent from the supplier’s computer system are automatically recognized, compared to the delivery notifications by the customer, and further processed in the accounting system of the customer, by identifying the date of the invoice, its number, and the amount of pay.
    Cross-Domain interoperatibility: Ex: Web services defined in WSDL (Web Services Definition language) or BPML (Business process model language) In the road traffic accident automation project the filing of the compensation forms by the hospitals was centrally secured as a web-service.

    4. Interoperability testing is done because it ensures the end-end service facility for more products for different sellers. The software should be able to communicate with other components without any issues.

  19. 1)What is interoperability testing?
    Many new technologies are emerging in an existing field. In order to make sure that these new programs are compatible with the existing technology, we need to interoperability testing. It is important that the new system and the old, existing system interacts flawlessly and is cross-functional. For example, if the original output program can only take in a one- or two- digit number for the age field, and the new input program that is built feeds in a one-, two-, or three- digit number for the age field, this new input program is not compatible with the original output program. In this case, interoperability testing is advantageous because it will catch this mismatch before program launch.

    2)What are the types of interoperability testing? give some example
    There are three types Interoperability testing. They are:
    A) Syntactic Interoperability: if two or more computer systems are capable communicating using specified data formats and communication protocols. For example, if the original output program can only take in a one- or two- digit number for the age field, and the new input program that is built feeds in a one-, two-, or three- digit number for the age field, this new input program is not compatible with the original output program.
    B) Semantic Interoperability: The ability to automatically interpret the information exchanged meaningfully and accurately to produce useful results by the end users of both the computer systems. For example, a program exists to calculate one’s body mass index based on their weight in kg and their height in meters. A new input program is built but gives the weight in pounds and height in feet. In this case, there is no syntax error since the original program will receive a two-digit number for the weight and a number in this format xx.x (one digit in the tenths place) for the height. However, the information is not exchanged meaningfully because the units are not correct.
    C) Cross-Domain Interoperability: it considers social, political, legal entities working together for information exchange. For example, the original program requires all seven digits of a person’s social security number. A new program is built to interface with the original program, but the new program only gives the last four digits of a person’s social security number (for security reasons). In this scenario, the original program can no longer work since it is not receiving all the information it needs.

    3) What are the levels of interoperability testing?
    The different software levels in interoperability testing is
    Physical interoperability, Data-type interoperability, Specific –level interoperability, Semantic interoperability.

    4) Why do we need interoperability testing?
    Interoperability testing is done because it ensures the end-end service facility for more products for different sellers. The software should be able to communicate with other components without any compatibility issues. If we do not perform interoperability testing, there is a chance for losing data, experiencing unreliable performance and/or incorrect operation.
