This page was created after the DCAT Meeting September 2015, where a working group was formed to prepare the test plans for the DSpace 6 Testathon.


  • Create two plans, one for XMLUI, one for JSPUI
  • Create these plans as collaborative spreadsheets (Google Docs)
  • Group the different tests per user persona/access level
    • Anonymous - Non-authenticated, anonymous users
    • Submitter - Authenticated user with submission rights
    • Collection Admin - Authenticated user with collection administration rights
    • Admin - Authenticated user with admin rights
  • Create plans to be used on
    • As a secondary benefit, it would be great if these plans can work as a model for in-house testing of your own upgrades.

Out of scope

  • Specific work on DSpace documentation
    • This will be treated in parallel, related to each new feature for which documentation needs to be reviewed
  • Tests for the other DSpace webapps
    • OAI-PMH
    • REST
    • SWORD
    • LNI
  • Performance and Load tests
