Release Testing

Before releasing your driver to production there are at least two things you really should do:

  1. Test all aspects of the driver with the ASCOM Conformance Tester (available on the ASCOM Download Center in the Developer Tools section).
  2. Have at least a few third parties test it with a variety of client applications. Ideally, the applications they use should be of varying types. For example, a telescope driver might be tested with planetariums, automation tools, and someting like FocusMax/AcquireStar.
