The TPC-App 1.0 was approved by the TPC membership. Results may be submitted against the benchmark as of February 17.
The subcommittee created a robust TPC-App auditor certification exam. Two auditors, Lorna Livingtree and Francois Raab were certified for TPC-App.
Additionally the subcommittee worked on a few clarifications to the specification. The required isolation levels for the Web Service Interactions has been clarified to require isolation level 2 for all interactions. XML serialization restrictions with regards to implementations containing only one SYSTEM have been clarified as well.
The definition and use of the term ‘caching’ has been clarified to correctly refer to the actions of caching and the cache object itself. Clarifications regarding the boundary values on various data range requirements throughout the specification have been made. Finally, database delimiters permitting retrieval of data from the Database System were accidentally removed in a portion of the Shipping Process, and have been re-inserted. The subcommittee has a few outstanding clarifications related to the above issues, and will likely bring forward a third tier revision (TPC-App 1.0.01) at the next General Council meeting.
