Dear Norm,

Thanks for the valuable issues. Recently, I am also investigating into WCS
coformance testing. I have read your report and check the test suite
according to your report,  and I also want to give some  comments and
questiongs on the issues.


Issue8,
wcs:GetCapabilities_Response_OperationsMetadata_Contents_CoverageSummary_Identifier_XML
Does not seem to test the XML syntax.
Issue 9:
wcs:GetCapabilities_Response_OperationsMetadata_Contents_CoverageSummary_SupportedFormat_
XML
Does not seem to test the XML syntax.
Issue 12: wcs:DescribeCoverage_Response_Identifier_XML
Does not seem to test the XML syntax.


do they validate by schema?  E.g. in
wcs:GetCapabilities_Response_OperationsMetadata_Contents_CoverageSummary_Identifier_XML
wcs:get-capabilities-accept-versions is called, and it use the following
parser to parse the schema.
    <ctlp:XMLValidatingParser>
     <ctlp:schemas>
      <ctlp:schema
type="resource">xsd/ogc/wcs/1.1.1/wcsGetCapabilities.xsd</ctlp:schema>
     </ctlp:schemas>
    </ctlp:XMLValidatingParser>
   </ctl:request>

Issue 5:
wcs:GetCapabilities_Response_OperationsMetadata_Post_Encoding
Should be skipped if the server does not support 'POST' request.

 Yes, current CTL mix the madatory and optional test together, so do we also
need something, like core test and extension test. E.g. Getcapabiltiy KVP
test as core,  Getcapabiltiy post test as extension.


issue3
The 'AcceptVersions' is a list of preferred versions. There is no concept of
lower/higher version in the specification. In fact, the server shall return
an exception only if it does not support any version in the
list.

Yes, I can also not find the definition of lower/higher version.

I agree the other issues you have found.


Best
Jinsongdi Yu
