IHE Test Tool Information

Overview

This page contains information about test tools available for testing IHE Profiles. Several organization contribute to this set of tools; thus, the tools currently reside in different locations and have a variety of support models (jira, email lists). Not all IHE profiles have test tools. This can be a challenge for new implementors, but it is the current state of affairs.

These tools are commonly used in the context of an IHE Connectathon. In that case, the test management tool called 'Gazelle' gives you a customized list of tests to do based on the IHE profiles you support. The tools referenced on this page can be used outside of a Connectathon, but the information on this page assumes that Gazelle Test Management is helping to manage testing.
