Definition Edit

Conformance testing is

the process of testing a technology implementation that claims to support a standard to determine if the implementation adheres to the standard.[1]

Overview Edit

"One of the major benefits of conformance testing is that it facilitates interoperability between various software products by confirming that each software product meets an agreed-upon standard or specification. Because of its broad usefulness, conformance testing is used in most if not all of the software testing stages and by both software developers and software users. Conformance testing methodologies have been developed for operating system interfaces, computer graphics, document interchange formats, computer networks, and programming language processors."[2]
