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 implementers, but it is the current state of affairs.

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 implementers, but it is the current state of affairs.
  
These tools are commonly used in the context of an IHE Connectathon. In that case, our 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 is helping to manage testing.

Our [http://gazelle.ihe.net/content/supportivethorough-testing policy on Supportive testing] states that if you qualify to perform Supportive testing, pre-Connectathon tests are not a requirement (because you have completed them in a previous year).  Note, however, that we do not remove these tests from your pre-Connectathon list of 'Tests do do'; some vendors still want to perform the tests as part of their preparation.  If you choose to skip the tests, just mark their status to be 'Supportive' in gazelle so we understand your intent.

=  What if a test reports a problem in my software? =
 +
The IHE tools are intended to test compliance with specifications in the IHE Technical Frameworks.   
 +
 +
When a tool logs an error, it is reporting a difference between a message produced by a vendor application and <i>the tool developer’s interpretation</i> of the requirements in the Technical Framework. 
 +
 +
So, a typical reaction by an implementer to an error reported by a tool is one of:
 +
* “Oh wow, I have a gap in my implementation.  I can now fix it so that my message is compliant with the requirements in the IHE Technical Framework.”
 +
* “The tool reported this error, but I think my implementation is correct.”  In that case, you should report the error. We will make an assessment of the tool vs. the specification and will happily fix the tool as needed.
 +
* “The tool reported an error, but for ‘X’ reason (product-specific, deployment-scenario-specific…), I will not change my implementation to be 100% IHE-compliant for this message."
 +
 +
A given tool rarely, if ever, provides 100% coverage in evaluating an implementation vs. IHE Technical Framework requirements.    For some IHE profiles, there is more than one tool, each providing different coverage. 
 +
 
 +
In the context of a Connectathon, IHE promotes a combination of compliance testing between your implementation and a tool **and** face-to-face interoperabity testing between vendors at IHE Connectathons.  We believe that combination helps implementers both shake out bugs in their implementation and also demonstrate their ability to interoperate with other vendors based on specifications in IHE Profiles.
 +
 +
IHE Technical Project Managers who have overseen testing at NA and EU IHE Connectathons for many years have heard more than once developers describe the built-in “if Connectathon” switch in their software -- the ability to "turn on" certain capabilities to satisfy a tool or Connectathon test.  We cringe every time.  If your software fails a tool-based test or peer-to-peer test, you should do the assessment in the bullet list above.  In [https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/ihe-xds-implementors/I0rejbyRgDU this email thread], John Moehrke (ITI Tech Cmte) provides an example in the context of an audit message.
 +
 +
For the purpose of IHE Connectathon testing, we have never “failed” a vendor for its implementation of a IHE profile/actor because of a single error message reported by a tool.

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 implementers, 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 is helping to manage testing.

Index to IHE Test Tools

This table lists the tools available for testing IHE profiles, along with links to the tool & documentation.
To determine which tool to use for the profile you want to test, please refer to the domain-specific Index to Pre-Connectathon Tests in the next section.

Tool training material

We gather "how to" information about individual IHE tools, see: http://gazelle.ihe.net/training#ToolTraining

To learn how to use gazelle to find your pre-Connectathon tests and upload results, see: http://gazelle.ihe.net/content/pre-connectathon-testing

How to find your Pre-Connectathon Test Requirements, Tools and Documentation

Each system participating in an IHE Connectathon is required to run a set of pre-Connectathon tests based on the actors/profiles you registered for. First find out which tests are required for your system, then download the tools and documentation you need. Here's how...

  1. What is the general pre-Connectathon test process?
    1. You will locate the tools and documentation you need using the tables below. Some tools you will run locally in your lab; other tools you will access over the internet.
    2. You will complete all tests from your required list of "test to do" in the Gazelle Test Management for your Connectathon. Each test contains a link to the test description containing instructions.
    3. For most pre-Connectathon tests, you will exchange a message (defined in an IHE transaction) with a test tool. Some tests ask you to test an object (eg. CDA document, DICOM image) against a tool that evaluates its contents. The tool will evaluate the message or object and create a log file indicating 0 or more errors.
    4. Once you achieve an error-free log for each test, upload that log file into Gazelle.
    5. Connectathon Project Managers will be monitoring your progress completing tests in the weeks prior to the Connectathon.
  2. Specifically, what are my pre-Connectathon test requirements??? - Pre-Connectathon Test Requirements are available in Gazelle after the close of Connectathon registration.
    1. Requirements for your connectathon test system are in Gazelle under menu Connectathon-->Pre-Connectathon Testing This list of tests to do is based on the profile/actors/options you have registered to test. This is also where you upload results/logs for pre-connectathon tests.
  3. How do I find the test tool software and documentation I need???
    1. The answer to this question has two parts:
      1. Refer to the Index to Pre-Connectathon Test Status by Domain on this page. This will tell you which tools you need based on the profiles you are testing
      2. Next, refer to the Index to IHE Tools above, which contains the location of the software & documentation for each tool.
    2. Note that, unlike Connectathon tests, the pre-Connectathon test descriptions do not reside in Gazelle itself. This is because IHE has several different organizations that contribute tools and tests. Each pre-Connectathon test in Gazelle does contain a link to the external test descriptions.
  4. Where do I upload the results (test logs) from my pre-Connectathon tests In Gazelle Tests Management under Connectathon-->Pre-Connectathon Testing . We have training material on this gazelle task here
  5. When are my test logs due? - Refer to the schedule for your Connectathon. Each event has its own due date.


Are these tests a requirement?

Occasionally we get questions like, "Do I have to complete pre-Connectathon tests in order to participate in the Connectathon?", or "What happens if I don't do my tests?"

In the early years of IHE, the Connectathon sponsors told vendors that if they did not complete their pre-Connectathon tests, they were not allowed to participate in the Connectathon itself. Over time, this hard-and-fast rule has been relaxed a bit to ensure that all interested vendors have the opportunity to perform Connectathon testing.

Here is the guidance we give now:

  • IHE invests in tool development and gives you a set of pre-Connectathon tests because we believe that when you perform these tests, you will improve the implementation of IHE profiles in your product. The tools help your development efforts reach at least one point of confirmation.
  • At the Connectathon, the focus shifts from tool-based tests done during the pre-Connectathon phase to peer-to-peer interoperability tests. That said, IHE's tools are used to check messages & validate content during the Connectathon. If you have completed your pre-Connectathon tests, you will have no problems using the tools during Connectathon week.
  • If you have "done your homework" by completing your pre-Connectathon tests, you will be ***much*** more likely to pass your peer-to-peer tests during the Connectathon. Connectathon Managers review your pre-Connectathon test logs in advance of the event. We know which vendors are prepared and which are not. Unprepared vendors who are struggling during the Connectathon will get low priority support from both the Connectathon Managers and the monitors grading tests. The Connectathon is a fast-paced, rigorous engineering event; if you are not prepared, your test partners will quickly learn that you are not a reliable partner and turn their attention to testing with a vendor who is prepared.

We hope that you are motivated to do your very best to prepare for the Connectathon by completing all of your pre-Connectathon tests by the posted deadline, but completing tests late is better than not doing them at all. In the end, the Connectathon results published by IHE are based on your tests during the Connectathon itself, not on pre-Connectathon testing.

Are they a requirement if I am doing Supportive testing?

Our policy on Supportive testing states that if you qualify to perform Supportive testing, pre-Connectathon tests are not a requirement (because you have completed them in a previous year). Note, however, that we do not remove these tests from your pre-Connectathon list of 'Tests do do'; some vendors still want to perform the tests as part of their preparation. If you choose to skip the tests, just mark their status to be 'Supportive' in gazelle so we understand your intent.

What if a test reports a problem in my software?

The IHE tools are intended to test compliance with specifications in the IHE Technical Frameworks.

When a tool logs an error, it is reporting a difference between a message produced by a vendor application and the tool developer’s interpretation of the requirements in the Technical Framework.

So, a typical reaction by an implementer to an error reported by a tool is one of:

  • “Oh wow, I have a gap in my implementation. I can now fix it so that my message is compliant with the requirements in the IHE Technical Framework.”
  • “The tool reported this error, but I think my implementation is correct.” In that case, you should report the error. We will make an assessment of the tool vs. the specification and will happily fix the tool as needed.
  • “The tool reported an error, but for ‘X’ reason (product-specific, deployment-scenario-specific…), I will not change my implementation to be 100% IHE-compliant for this message."

A given tool rarely, if ever, provides 100% coverage in evaluating an implementation vs. IHE Technical Framework requirements. For some IHE profiles, there is more than one tool, each providing different coverage.

In the context of a Connectathon, IHE promotes a combination of compliance testing between your implementation and a tool **and** face-to-face interoperabity testing between vendors at IHE Connectathons. We believe that combination helps implementers both shake out bugs in their implementation and also demonstrate their ability to interoperate with other vendors based on specifications in IHE Profiles.

IHE Technical Project Managers who have overseen testing at NA and EU IHE Connectathons for many years have heard more than once developers describe the built-in “if Connectathon” switch in their software -- the ability to "turn on" certain capabilities to satisfy a tool or Connectathon test. We cringe every time. If your software fails a tool-based test or peer-to-peer test, you should do the assessment in the bullet list above. In this email thread, John Moehrke (ITI Tech Cmte) provides an example in the context of an audit message.

For the purpose of IHE Connectathon testing, we have never “failed” a vendor for its implementation of a IHE profile/actor because of a single error message reported by a tool.

Profile Status of pre-Connectathon tests Tool to use / Notes
Pre-Connectathon Tests; RTM conformance is required for all except IDCO and RDQ (see below). Tests Ready PCD uses NIST PCD Tools for most HL7 v2 Pre-Connectathon tests. Links are provided here.

If an Isolated Test is available that is the required test. A few tests are at the Instance Test level. In that case, Instance Tests are the type test required. Most Isolated Tests include Instance Testing, and Instance Tests can be used as development tools for most tests. CAUTION: Select the correct URL for the type of test (Isolated or Instance) required for Pre-Connectathon testing – i.e., if an Isolated Test is available that is the required test; Instance Tests are required only if an Isolated Test is not available. The type of test is defined within the Gazelle test.

- Isolated Testing: https://ihe-pcd.nist.gov/pcdtool/#/cb
- Instance Testing: https://ihe-pcd.nist.gov/pcdtool/#/cf

If the required test is an Isolated Test you must remember to post (i.e., commit) the test results within the test tool. For all tests upload the log to Gazelle and indicate Self Verified; comments may be included.

You can find the list of tests with identification of the type of test at PCD Connectathon ftp site.
