News Facts

To enable companies to more effectively develop and deliver business-critical applications, Oracle today announced the latest release of Oracle Application Testing Suite 9.2, the industry’s most complete, open and integrated application testing solution for Web, SOA, and packaged Oracle applications.
Oracle Application Testing Suite 9.2 extends support for automated functional testing and load testing for Oracle Database, Oracle Application Development Framework and Adobe Flex-based applications and expands integration with Oracle Enterprise Manager’s Real User Experience Insight, Oracle Real Application Testing, and Oracle Database Diagnostics Pack.
Oracle Application Testing Suite 9.2 now integrates key templates from Capgemini Group’s TMap® (Test Management Approach), a world-leading business-driven, risk-based approach for structured software testing that helps organizations more effectively manage and standardize test processes.
A key component of Oracle Enterprise Manager’s suite of Application Quality Management products, Oracle Application Testing Suite provides an integrated solution for load testing, functional testing and test management, enabling customers to thoroughly test applications and their underlying infrastructure to help ensure optimum quality, scalability and availability prior to deployment.

New Integrations and Enhancements Bolster Application Testing Process

Oracle Application Testing Suite 9.2 expands and streamlines the testing process. Highlights include:
Enhanced Test Management Capabilities: using Capgemini Group’s TMap® templates, application quality can be improved and testing time reduced.
Expanded Capabilities for Oracle Database Testing: allows users to create test scripts by importing real database transactions from Database Replay capture files to provide faster, cost effective, and more realistic testing.
Enhanced Test Starter Kits: deliver sample functional and load test scripts for testing the Oracle E-Business Suite Release12 and 11i applications.
Extended Application Support: including Rich Internet Applications (RIAs) built with Oracle ADF, Adobe Flex, and Web Services, helps users ensure the quality of both their custom applications and packaged Oracle applications.
Additional Testing and Diagnostics Support: leveraging Oracle Real User Experience Insight, users can create scripts based on real user session recordings and identify performance bottlenecks in detail during a load test.
Scripting enhancements: allows domain knowledge of Oracle Applications to be automatically applied to test scripts, making scripts simpler and easier to work with for non-expert testers, and increases efficiency of testers of all skill levels.
Expanded cross-script efficiency: such as synchronization and parameterization, makes it easy to create test regimes for coordinated, complex test scenarios.
Oracle Application Testing 9.2 also features testing accelerators for Oracle applications, including Oracle’s Siebel, the Oracle E-Business Suite, and Oracle Applications Development Framework-based applications, enabling easier and more efficient testing for Oracle applications not available in generic third-party application testing tools.
