<p>The major components of the MAP 2.1 conformance test system are described. Protocol conformance testing and program testing are compared. The scope and process of dynamic conformance testing is reviewed. The architecture of the tests system is presented, first in terms of the developing ISO (International Organization for Standardization) framework, and then in terms of run-time components. Several specific tools which comprise the test system are described. These tools include test engines, a high-level control tool, monitoring and analysis tools, and document handling tools. Benefits and limitations of the test tools are examined. Conclusions and suggestions for future efforts are provided.</p>
