TEAM Engine


TEAM Engine (Test, Evaluation, And Measurement Engine) is a Java-based application for testing web services and other information resources. It executes test suites developed using the popular TestNG framework, OGC Compliance Test Language (CTL) scripts, and possibly other JVM-friendly languages. It is lightweight and easy to run from the command-line or as a web application.

TEAM Engine can be used to test almost any type of service or information resource. It is the official test harness used by the Open Geospatial Consortium's (OGC) compliance program. Visit the project documentation website for more information.
