OSLC Quality Management Version 2.1 from the #OSLC Open Project is approved as our first Project Specification

OSLC Quality Management V2.1 approved as a Project Specification

Our congratulations go to the OASIS Open Services for Lifecycle Collaboration (OSLC) Open Project on the approval and publication of the first Project Specification produced in the OASIS Open Projects program.

Managing change and configuration in a complex systems development lifecycle can be very difficult, especially in heterogeneous environments that include homegrown tools, open source projects, and commercial tools from different vendors. The OSLC initiative applies World Wide Web and Linked Data principles to produce specifications that enable interoperation of change, configuration, and asset management processes across an entire application and product lifecycle.

Quality Management builds on the OSLC Core Specification to define the test plans, test cases, and test results of the software delivery lifecycle that should be supported by an OSLC Quality Management provider.

This Project Specification is the first of multiple outputs that are in process in the project, including the Core specification, Requirements Management, and Change Management.

This Project Specification is an OASIS deliverable, completed and approved by the Project Governing Board of the OSLC OP, and fully ready for testing and implementation.

The prose specifications and related files are available here:
