eXist XQJ API - TCK Conformance

The XQJ API Specification states that XQJ implementations should pass the Test Compatibility Kit (TCK) and provide a Compliance Definition statement outlining how all aspects of the XQJ implementation which are described by the XQJ Specification as "implementation-defined" have been implemented.

Technology Compatibility Kit (TCK) Conformance

The XQJ Specification provides a Technology Compatibility Kit (TCK).

The TCK is a piece of software which can be used to test whether or not an XQJ implementation complies with the XQJ specification.

The following table shows the results of running the XQJ TCK against the eXist XQJ API implementation.
