|Re: [jakartaee-platform-dev] How should Platform SPEC level requirements be covered by new (SPEC API) TCKs?|
Sending again with a few typos fixed.
There really wasn't enough time in the Platform call on Tuesday to discuss the possibility of having SPEC API level TCKs and how the Platform SPEC requirements would be covered. We have already had some discussion just not on this mailing list yet. I would like to answer how we will identify the Platform SPEC level requirements that SPEC API level TCKs must meet.
More details from past discussions over the past few years:
From April 2019, we have jakartaee-tck/issues/51 `Turning Platform TCK into a multi-dependency Maven project` . The follow up discussion is on the Platform TCK mailing list . Of note is Bill Shannon's response  about which tests should remain in the Platform TCK (CTS) and which tests should move to the SPEC API project. This was the first Platform TCK mailing discussion thread that we had regarding .
More recently, jaxrs-api/issues/924 was opened to answer `TCK: Extend existing TCK or start our own one?`  which has a cross blend of different opinions, they started adding tests already. Other SPEC API projects have also added tests (e.g. see jsonp tck folder ) or are looking to discuss how they will soon add TCK tests.
Of note are a few Servlet TCK conversations  started in Sept 2020 on the servlet-dev ml and continued on the spec-project-leads ml  in Oct 2020. Also Faces  has a discussion started as well.
The Batch SPEC API team opened Platform TCK issues/574  to start maintaining the Batch tests via the Batch SPEC API project instead of the Platform TCK project. They referenced the  conversation about using Arquillian in the Batch TCK.
IMO, regardless of how we decide to maintain the internals of the various TCKs, it would be good to identify what exactly the Platform SPEC requirements are now and in the future that at a minimum are required as requested by .
