Distributed testing framework based on ECF RFC 119 D-OSGi

Project Lead: Markus Alexander Kuppe (IRC: lemmy)

Mentor: Scott Lewis

This project is part of the Google Summer of Code 2009


The goal of this project is to plan, design and setup a distributed testing framework for ECF. Furthermore it is about implementing (additional) tests as well as completing the current incarnation of ECF's version [2] of distributed OSGI (RFC 119) [3] specified in R4.2 by the OSGi Enterprise Expect group due this summer [3].

On top of that I intent to identify requirements and architectural design possibilites to extent well known testing tools like JUnit to better support distribution scenarios. The second part will later be used in my M.Sc. studies at University of Hamburg at the "Distributed Systems and Information Systems" department [4].





Ping me on IRC or Jabber for details, question, comments or criticism. :-)
