ITK Testbench

NHS Digital provides resources for interface development and those seeking assurance. One such resource is the ITK Testbench, containing two tools; Toolkit Workbench (TKW) and Autotest Manager.

  • TKW is command-line standalone test engine for message validation, message transmission, and ITK end point simulation.
  • Autotest Manager is a GUI driven fully automated test tool, which orchestrates the execution of multiple tests using TKW as the test engine. The Autotest Manager has recently been updated to include a ‘single run’ mode which effectively offers, via the GUI, the same functions as the TKW command line.
