Webinar on a new Test Registry and Repository


On 23 October 2015, the ISA Programme of the European Commission hosted a webinar to present the Test Registry and Repository (TRR), a repository to store and publish different types of test artefacts (test beds, test cases, test assertions, validation schemas, etc.).


TRR has been created according to a specification from the CEN GITB workshop and integrated into the Joinup platform. The repository goes into production in October. The webinar presented an opportunity for potential users to get to know the functionalities of the repository straightaway.


Some of the test bed owners were invited to give a short introduction to their work, their notion of testing and the technical resources they use or provide to their communities.


The webinar was organised in the context of the ISA Action 4.2.6 ‘Interoperability test bed’. The target audience are owners of test beds and test centres, test developers and testers, but also the users of systems that need interoperability or conformance testing.


The ISA programme supports the interoperability of public administrations in Europe through more than 40 actions, one of them being the ‘Interoperability test bed’.


For further more information, please contact Dr. Wigard, Programme Manager of the ISA programme.

Expected Participants:


State: Open



The presentations and the TRR webinar report will be published here shortly.

Presentation of the Test Registry and Repository (TRR) on Joinup

Roch Bertucat
