This is to announce the free availability
of the second beta release of the e-print
Test Suite at http://www.trcs.com.

The e-print Test Suite is an IPP client that
facilitates the testing of printers that
implement the Internet Printing Protocol (IPP).

There are several sample scripts that can serve
as a basis for testing for the upcoming IPP
bake-off. These sample scripts will be enhanced
and expanded by the time of the bake-off.

The e-print Test Suite is built
on the framework of the e-print Engine.
The e-print Test Suite provides the
IPP server developer essential tools to
aid in the development and testing
of IPP printers.

The capabilities of the e-print Test Suite
include:

o Uses an XML interface to drive the ePrint
Test Suite.
o Allows reproduction of tests by providing
a file interface to store tests.
o Allows attributes to be specified that are
not part of the IPP standard.
o Allows the output of one request to "feed"
the input of another request.
o Provides the ability to specify "expected"
values from a request.
o Allows the specification of valid or invalid
values to be sent to the IPP server.
o Written entirely in Java.
o Full tracing of requests and replies.
