Thanks for following up on what was an excellent series of WPS presentations at foss4g this year.

I was amazed to see so many presentations devoted to WPS. One that really stood out as a usage report was the EnviModel presentation. Using WPS, R stats, and numerous other components to get the job done. Hopefully we can get more case studies next year.

With respect to your testing of zoo - you may wish to pass this information on as a blog post so it shows up on osgeo planet along with the other foss4g summaries.

So the ZOO-Tribe decided to provide a report based on the same techniques than the one used in above presentation and clarify of the ZOO Kernel valid XML responses using only Open Source software to run the tests.
> The results of our tests are available on wiki page on the official ZOO Project Trac system [2] where you can read the results we got when running the validity tests for each requests discussed during the conference. As we are in an Open Source community we also provided a tool [3] to run the tests on your own using a simple bash script (working also on GNU/Linux and MacOS X). This way you can ensure that tests made were appropriate. Based on this tool we created another script which provides periodically a web report available on the ZOO-Project web site [4].
> Contrary to what was said during in [1], all the tests made was successfully validated. Nevertheless, on the OGC external wiki [5], we noticed that the URLs used to run tests on the ZOO Kernel response validity was wrong so we have corrected it on this wiki page also.

> I hope you can take few minutes of your busy time to read the report and check by yourself that everything is working fine with the ZOO Kernel and maybe even more in the form of a a generic way to test our WPS implementation responses validity which will be useful for future testing.
