ACATS Test Modification List

Version 4.0A
August 31, 2014

What is this?

This is the ACATS modification list for ACATS 4.0. This document includes test corrections, test removals, and new tests for ACATS 4.0. ACATS 4.0 is the current test suite for Ada, covering the third edition of Ada, ISO/IEC 8652:2012 (usually known as "Ada 2012").

ACATS Modification List version 3.1B for ACATS 3.1 is the current list for that test suite. ACATS 3.1 should be used for testing implementations that support Amendment 1 (ISO/IEC 8652:1995/AMD 1:2007, often known as "Ada 2005"), and will continue to be maintained as necessary for the foreseeable future.

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 implementations of the second edition of Ada, ISO/IEC 8652:1995 (usually known as "Ada 95"); it also will continue to be maintained as necessary for the foreseeable future.

Changes from the last list:

This is the initial list for ACATS 4.0. It contains one new test, C760014 (mainly so it wouldn't be empty).

New tests posted between July 1, 2014 and September 30, 2014 will become required for conformity assessments on April 1, 2015. All tests posted to modification lists for other versions of the ACATS to date are included in ACATS 4.0 if appropriate and thus are required for conformity assessment using ACATS 4.0 The effective dates of tests are marked in the lists.

New tests inserted between January 1, 2014 and March 31, 2014 will become required for conformity assessments on October 1, 2014. New tests inserted between October 1, 2013 and December 31, 2013 will become required for conformity assessments on July 1, 2014. 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.

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 Categories are "Withdrawn" (the test should not be processed for Ada conformity assessments); "Allowed Modification" (either the original test or the modified one should be processed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 Ada standard as available at http://www.adaic.org/resources/add_content/standards/12rm/html/RM-TOC.html.

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 from the Compilers and Conformance section of the Ada IC web site (www.adaic.org). It also can be accessed directly at www.ada-auth.org.

The complete set of official new and modified tests are available in the Mod_4_0A.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 4.0 is available in various formats on the ACAA web site.
