Getting the Most from Your IMS Membership: APIs, Reference Implementations, Code Libraries and Test Systems

An important part of the development of an IMS specification is the set of resources that are created to make the use of the specification as simple as possible. These resources include reference implementations, reference test sets, conformance test systems, code libraries and API definitions. Using these resources will reduce the effort and time required to implement IMS specifications. Becoming aware of all these resources and how they can be used is the first step in adopting an IMS specification. Learn how your IMS membership can help your developers.

During this session attendees will learn about:

  • The set of developer resources that are made available to IMS Members to ease adoption and implementation of an IMS specification
  • How to work with the IMS staff to make the best use of the member resources 
  • How to use the IMS resources for rapid prototyping of a solution for your product
  • Using the IMS reference implementations to support your in-house integration testing
  • Preparing for using the IMS Conformance Test Systems for certification.
