The Conformance Test Architecture (CTA) and Conformance Test Suite (CTS) for ANSI/NIST-ITL 1-2007 (AN-2007) were developed prior to the development of BioCTS, and therefore runs on an different software architecture called "AN-2007 CTA/CTS Beta 0.5". AN-2007 CTA/CTS Beta 0.5 is designed to test AN-2007 transactions for conformance to the AN-2007 standard. Conformance testing is performed for the following selected record types:
For transactions that include record types other than those listed above, the presence of the records is reported (including record length), but no conformance testing is performed.
The CTA/CTS Beta 0.5 software contains everything needed to start testing implementations of AN-2007. Read the instructions contained in the associated documentation
