note: this is a brief note for informational purposes. it's eventually going to be "cleaned up" and moved to a more appropriate place on this wiki.


What is This?

In the development of the Open Grid Protocol and the PyOGP project, it became obvious that there were no canonical lists of use cases and things to test. This page is the first effort to remediate this omission. While we don't go as far as providing use cases here, we do list common functionality and interoperability tests.

About the OGP Test Cases

The objective of the Open Grid Protocol is to specify syntax and semantics of SL Grid messages to the degree that interoperable viewers, agent domains, region domains and regions may be coded without resort to close examination of open source code from Linden Lab or peeking into the interaction between running clients and servers. The Second Life Grid has been developed sufficiently, the reasoning goes, that it should be possible to shine the bright light of inquiry on the process and document the living heck out of how the system works. Moving forward we should see advantages as software developers code to documented requirements and standards. The "OGP Test Cases" are a catalog of tests that demonstrate compatibility with the written spec.

Well... that's how it's supposed to be...

In the real world, "running code" trumps written specifications, and probably will continue to do so.
