In case you haven't picked up the tool and scripts from the Xerox web site,
here is a short summary of the improvements since the 1st Bake Off in
September 1998.

While the User's Guide (file: IppServerTestUserGuide.htm) still refers to
Version 1 of the Tool, the V2.0 Tool and scripts have been updated to
conform to the November "Model and Semantics" and "Encoding and Transport,
i.e., to IPP/1.0. See the

Improvements in the Tool (from README-IppTest.txt):

Several new script language features have been added; see
IppServerTestAddendum.txt for full details.

- Include Command: supports C-like "include files"
- Unordered Comparison of 1setOf X Values
- If/Else Command: execution conditioned on attribute
and Symbol values
- IfDef/IfNDef/Else Commands: execution conditioned on
existence of a Symbol
- Previous Command Status: execution conditioned on
completion status of previous command
- Attribute Value "Casting": to distinguish between e.g.,
"name" and "keyword" values
- Enum-like Names for Operation Status Codes
- "unknown", "unsupported", and "no-value" Values
- Recommended/default installation uses one directory;
there are no longer separate "installation" and
"working" directories.
- IppTest.bat subsumes IppToolVars.bat

Also the scripts have been improved with feedback from the first BakeOff in
September:

If your printer supports any of the Set 1 operation extensions (Hold-Job,
Release-Job, Restart-Job, Pause-Printer, Resume-Printer, or Purge-Jobs),
uncomment out the operation code definition (3 lines each) in your personal
(renamed) MyPrinterDefs.test. See STEP 4 in MyPrinterDefs.test

If your printer doesn't spool, i.e., only prints one job at a time and can't
accept another while it is printing the first, you can define the
NON-SPOOLING symbol by uncommenting the definition in your personal
(renamed) MyPrinterDefs.test. See STEP 9 in MyPrinterDefs.test

Also if you printer supports the Pause-Printer and Resume-Printer
operations, you can define the symbol USE-PAUSE-PRINTER by uncommenting the
definition in your personal (renamed) MyPrinterDefs.test. See STEP 10 in
MyPrinterDefs.test

I have copied the scripts and documentation, but not the .jar file, to the
PWG server into two directories. One is for the released scripts as is.
PLEASE don't change them. The second directory is for new, improved and/or
fixed scripts and documentation that anyone can contribute to. Please
increment the version number, date, and put a brief description of the
change along with your name at the front as comments as have been done
already.

The two directories are:

ftp://ftp.pwg.org/pub/pwg/ipp/new_TES/Test_Scripts/Xerox/BakeOff2UnModified/
ftp://ftp.pwg.org/pub/pwg/ipp/new_TES/Test_Scripts/Xerox/BakeOff2Modified/

The current contents of both are the same:

The scripts support the Bake Off 2 Test Plan. The tool implements a number
of new language features. See the README files for details. Like the
recently announced Xerox IPP Prototype Client, this tool requires Java
JDK1.1.7B.

Please address any issues/questions with the tool or scripts to
xerox-ipp-tools@cp10.es.xerox.com (messages of general interest should cc:
ipp@pwg.org).
