ACATS Test Modification List

Version 3.1H
June 22, 2015

What is this?

This is the ACATS modification list for ACATS 3.1. This document includes test corrections, test removals, and new tests for ACATS 3.1. ACATS 3.1 is the current test suite for the version of Ada that became current with the approval and publication of Amendment 1 by ISO as ISO/IEC 8652:1995/AMD 1:2007 (often known as "Ada 2005").

ACATS Modification List version 2.6D for ACATS 2.6 is the current list for that test suite. ACATS 2.6 should be used for testing Ada 95 implementations, and will continue to be maintained as necessary for the foreseeable future.

ACATS Modification List version 4.0G is the current list for ACATS 4.0. ACATS 4.0 should be used for testing the third edition of Ada, ISO/IEC 8652:2012 (usually known as "Ada 2012").

Changes from the last list:

BC60002, BC60004, and CC60001 test various rules for formal abstract subprograms.

New tests posted between April 1, 2015 and June 30, 2015 will become required for conformity assessments on January 1, 2016. New tests posted between January 1, 2015 and March 31, 2015 will become required for conformity assessments on October 1, 2015. New tests inserted between October 1, 2014 and December 31, 2014 will become required for conformity assessments on July 1, 2015. New tests inserted between October 1, 2013 and September 30, 2014 are now required for conformity assessments. All other tests previously inserted into ACATS 3.0 are part of ACATS 3.1 and are required for conformity assessment. The effective dates of tests are marked in the lists.

Ada 2012 compatibility:

This test suite is designed for Ada 2005. ACATS 4.0 should be used to test Ada 2012 implementations. There are a significant number of tests in ACATS 3.1 that are incompatible with the requirements of Ada 2012.

Notice:

The ACAA has created and maintains the Ada Conformity Assessment Test Suite for the purpose of conformity assessments conducted in accordance with the International Standard ISO/IEC 18009 - Ada: Conformity assessment of a language processor. This test suite should not be used to make claims of conformance unless used in accordance with ISO/IEC 18009 and any applicable ACAA procedures.

List explanation:

Test numbers given are for the basic test. Categories are "Withdrawn" (the test should not be processed for Ada conformity assessments); "Allowed Modification" (either the original test or the modified one should be processed for Ada conformity assessments); "Modified" (the modified test must be processed for Ada conformity assessments); "Pending New" (the test does not need to be processed for Ada conformity assessments, but will be added in the future); "New" (the test is processed for Ada conformity assessments).

ACATS version labels are provided with all new and modified tests. Use this label to retrieve the test from the ACATS VCS. See "How to get new and modified tests".

In citations, line numbers are given relative to the start of a test file in the format of '@<line#,line#,...>'; if a test program comprises more than one file, then the particular file will be indicated by "fn", where "n" is the test-program name's file-designator numeral. E.g., "B38103E : @f1-31, ... " denotes test file b38103e1.ada. In cases where there are two or more rationales for different errors in a test program, these different rationales with their respective line citations are listed on separate lines. References to the Ada standards are given in the format:
   <section|chapter>.<clause>[.<subclause>]:<paragraph>
These references are to the consolidated Ada standard as available at http://www.adaic.org/resources/add_content/standards/05rm/html/RM-TOC.html.

        [VCS Label A3_1B] Added constants for the external names for the

        variables used by tests CXAH001 and CXAH002. Also removed obsolete
        .AW file constants (these are not used as test source has been

        change is only needed for those tests, it has no effect on any
        other tests.
        [VCS Label A3_1F] Added a constant and function used by test
        CXAG001. The change is only needed for that test, it has no
        effect on any other tests.

 

How to get new and modified tests:

The official home of the ACATS test suite is the ACAA web site. The site can be accessed at www.ada-auth.org.

The complete set of official new and modified tests are available in the Mod_3_1H.Zip and Tar files on the ACAA web site.

Individual new and modified tests can be retrieved from the ACATS VCS. Simply navigate to the appropriate directory (folder), and select the test you want. Select the revision you want (usually the most recent) and it will be retrieved for you. Tests are stored in directories that correspond to the test's prefix. For instance, the test CD92001.A will be found in the CD directory. You can also browse the differences between versions of a test. [In case of a conflict, the files in the ACATS VCS should be considered the 'official' versions.]

If you cannot get the files from the official site or you cannot get the files in a format appropriate for your processor, please contact your ACAL.

The baseline ACATS 3.1 is available in various formats on the ACAA web site.
