TAPIR providers in terms of compatibility with the protocol:


If you don't know any TAPIR endpoint, you can try with this one:


TapirTester is open source and can be downloaded with a subversion client.
The address for checking out is:


If you get the software, you'll find instructions about how to install it
and how to write new test suites.

Besides the general test suite, there will soon be another one for full
TAPIR providers that have mapped a specific database using DarwinCore

suites is welcome. Please let me know if you have any ideas or if you find
any issues.

Best Regards,
