OGC Requests Host for Compliance Tools Infrastructure

 To support the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) Compliance Program, the OGC is accepting proposals from organizations that are able to host the OGC Compliance Tools Infrastructure.

Proposals should describe how the hosting organization would:

-       Provide an issue tracker system and capability to interact with Git commits

-       Support continuous integration tools

-       Provide a maven repository

-       Support license and code review

 Responses are due by May 5th 2014.

The OGC Compliance Program provides the resources, procedures, and policies for improving compliance with OGC standards. The Compliance Program provides an online free testing facility, a process for certification and branding of compliant products, and coordination of a vibrant community that develops and supports test scripts. A software provider whose product or service passes OGC compliance testing may pay a Trademark License Fee to use the "Certified OGC Compliant" brand in that product or service's packaging and marketing.

The OGC TEAM Engine (TE) is a test harness that executes test suites written using the OGC CTL test grammar or the TestNG framework. It is available in Github. The OGC Tests are available at the OGC SVN in CTL (Compliance Test Language) and TestNG. The OGC issue tracker contains all issues related to tests and TEAM Engine.

For more information about this opportunity, please contact: Luis Bermudez, OGC Director of Interoperability Certification, lbermudez [at] opengeospatial.org.

The OGC® is an international consortium of more than 470 companies, government agencies, research organizations, and universities participating in a consensus process to develop publicly available geospatial standards. OGC standards empower technology developers to make geospatial information and services accessible and useful with any application that needs to be geospatially enabled.
