Qualitylogic Introduces Xps Examiner Tool for Developers, Test Engineers Working With Microsoft Xml Paper Specification (Xps) Files

QualityLogic (www.qualitylogic.com), a provider of leading-edge QA and QC test tools and services for the imaging and telecom industries, has released test files for the first of several planned applications found in OpenOffice.org 2.  Test files are now available for “Writer” and “Draw”.  “Impress” is in development, and additional applications are planned.

QualityLogic has been developing test files for popular Windows applications for over 20 years.  These files are used by printer companies to ensure compatibility between their printers and the applications their customers use, and by software companies whose applications convert one file format to another.  They are also used by Fortune 1000, government, education and healthcare companies to help make printer and software purchasing decisions. The popularity of the OpenOffice.org office suite has created a need within these companies for sophisticated test files similar to those QualityLogic has developed for Windows applications.

“Our customers have relied on QualityLogic’s structured and methodical approach to developing test files for Windows applications for years”, said Dave Jollota, president of QualityLogic’s Imaging Test Solutions Group. “We have applied the same development processes to the OpenOffice.org office suite and look forward to helping our customers ensure compatibility with these emerging applications.”

OpenOffice.org (the product) is a multi-platform office productivity suite.  It includes the key desktop applications, such as a word processor, spreadsheet, presentation manager and drawing program, with a user interface and feature set similar to other office suites. Sophisticated and flexible, OpenOffice.org also works transparently with a variety of file formats, including those of Microsoft Office, and the vendor-neutral OpenDocument standard from OASIS.
