A model for software component certification based on test certificates supplied by developers in a standard portable form is proposed. Purchasers are expected to use the model to determine the quality and suitability of purchased software. The model involves the designing of standard test specifications that are devoid of language specific features. The tests described by the test specifications are run by Java programming. The advantages of the approach over the certification laboratory approach includes reduced costs, added value, augmented functional requirements and guaranteed trust.
