W3C Candidate Recommendation proposed by the W3C Social Web Working Group


Linked Data Notifications is a protocol that describes how servers (receivers) can have messages pushed to them by applications (senders), as well as how other applications (consumers) may retrieve those messages. Any resource can advertise a receiving endpoint (Inbox) for the messages. Messages are expressed in RDF, and can contain any data.


This is the test suite for Linked Data Notifications. Once your implementation has passed the relevant tests, you can submit an implementation report to help enable this specification progress to W3C Recommendation. Future implementations can use this test suite as well. Running the tests will generate a checklist, filled in where possible, to indicate the outcome of the tests with additional information, and thus which features you have implemented according to the spec.

Start your implementation tests at sender, receiver, or consumer, then submit a report. One report per implementation type.

Test outcomes
It returns a passed/failed response for individual requirements of the LDN spec. It also tests some optional features; you will get an inapplicable response if you do not implement them, rather than a fail. Some of the test outcomes will require manual checking, hence they will be marked with cannot tell. If a test was skipped or no value provided, it will be marked as untested.

Please note that individual reports as well as a summary of all reports will be made public using CC-BY license.
