Comprehensive Testing Solutions Help Ensure the Quality and Performance of Mission-Critical Web Applications
Redwood Shores, CA – September 9, 2008
Enabling customers to deploy higher quality applications with less cost, complexity and effort, Oracle today announced availability of the Oracle® Application Testing Suite, the newest addition to Oracle Enterprise Manager's suite of Application Quality Management products.
The Oracle Application Testing Suite provides an integrated solution for load testing, functional testing and test management. It enables customers to thoroughly test packaged, Web and Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) -based applications and their underlying infrastructure and helps ensure optimum quality, scalability and availability.
Oracle Enterprise Manager is a comprehensive product line of management software for application and Information Technology (IT) infrastructure resources. Spanning applications, middleware and database management, Oracle Enterprise Manager delivers integrated management for the enterprise application stack comprising Oracle and non-Oracle software and systems.
Comprehensive Testing for Mission-Critical Applications
Application quality management plays a key role in Oracle Enterprise Manager's top-down approach to application management by enabling applications to perform well under peak load with maximum throughput, even in the face of evolving technology, limited understanding of test parameters and resource constraints.
Helping organizations to address testing needs for the entire application environment, Oracle's Application Quality Management solution offers strong synthetic load testing, real-workload testing, functional testing, secure data sharing and comprehensive test management capabilities.
The Oracle Application Testing Suite employs an open and integrated scripting platform for load and functional testing that can help cut scripting time in half and reduce weeks from a typical project’s testing schedule. Key components of the suite include:
Load Testing for Web Applications: By simulating tens of thousands of virtual users accessing the application simultaneously, Load Testing for Web Applications measures the effect of the load on application performance providing an easy way to validate the performance and scalability of applications and Web Services.
Functional Testing for Web Applications: Enables comprehensive functional testing of applications and Web Services. Its unique transaction engine simplifies automated test script generation and enables the automation of the most complex Web applications and associated technologies out-of-the-box to validate the end user’s experience.
Test Manager for Web Applications: Helps users manage the Web application testing process, enabling full test coverage, by allowing users to define testing requirements, specify and execute manual or automated tests to validate requirements and then manage the defects that those tests uncover.
Oracle Application Testing Suite also provides a common scripting environment between functional testing and load testing to help simplify test process and accelerate completion of tests by as much as 50%.
In addition, the suite features a functional and load testing accelerator for Oracle's Siebel CRM.
“With Oracle Application Testing Suite, Oracle has delivered a comprehensive testing solution for SOA and Web applications to help customers deliver high quality, mission-critical applications faster and with less effort,” said Leng Leng Tan, Oracle Vice President, Applications and Systems Management. “With this unique testing platform, customers can tackle small to very large testing projects and save time in both functional and load testing efforts. Oracle Application Testing Suite is a valuable addition to Oracle Enterprise Manager's existing product portfolio, including Real Application Testing, for database testing, and Data Masking Pack for secure data sharing. The combined solution is the most complete testing solution for Oracle environments.”
