NAMExmltest - Test script to send CIM-XML (via wbemcat) to CIMOM and compare to known results
xmltest is a script that is used to send a raw CIM-XML test file to the sfcb CIMOM (using wbemcat) and then compares the returned CIM-XML results against a previously determined 'OK' result file to check whether the returned results match the expected results. If there does not yet exist an 'OK' corresponding to the XML file then xmltest will save the returned results as the new OK file for later use. If the returned CIM-XML results don't match the existing 'OK' file a new 'result' file will be generated containing the erroneous results.
If there is no 'OK' file to compare returned CIM-XML results against xmltest will generate one.
# xmltest test/getclass.Linux_OperatingSystem.xml Running test test/getclass.Linux_OperatingSystem.xml ... OK Saving response as test/getclass.Linux_OperatingSystem.OK
If the returned CIM-XML results match the existing 'OK' file xmltest will signal that the test passed.
# xmltest test/getclass.Linux_OperatingSystem.xml Running test test/getclass.Linux_OperatingSystem.xml ... Passed
If the returned CIM-XML results don't match the existing 'OK' file xmltest will signal that the tes failed and generate a 'result' file containing the erroneous results.
# xmltest test/getclass.Linux_OperatingSystem.xml Running test test/getclass.Linux_OperatingSystem.xml ... FAILED Check test/getclass.Linux_OperatingSystem.result for errors
PREREQUISITESRequires wbemcat on search path.

BUGSDoes not adequately deal with additional http headers/footers caused by chunking responses, which will result in false failures when comparing results to existing "x.OK" files.
