The Technology Compatibility Kit (TCK) should be updated more carefully than the RI, since we want to avoid the situation where a change breaks an implementation that had been running successfully (passing all tests) against a previous version of the TCK.This might apply even if the fix is a "bug" in that the test logic clearly contradicts the intentions and behaviors stated in the specification. On the other hand changes like improving diagnostics and making the TCK more configurable and user-friendly should be able to be made without this type of concern. We intend to make changes on a case-by-case basis, and deal with the above risk by:
We updated the SigTest signature files
