One of the most challenging things, apart from test definition, during the process of testing an application is to keep the overview over the entire process, i.e. knowing the status of the current test progress.

Here you want to know (obviously there are more things):

  • what requirements need be tested
  • what are the tests belonging to them, i.e. each others association
  • test status, i.e. how many tests are executed yet, and which of them failed
  • the issues resulting out of failed test executions (issue tracking)

For all that Oracle provides you the Oracle Application Testing Suite.

OATS – TestManager

This is the central tool, that allows you to cover all aspects of the whole appication testing process, i.e. defining testing plans,  add your requirements, whole issue tracking process  adding tests, including JUnit Tests over existing ANT-File and 3rd Party Test via an executable file.

OATS also provides reports for the several categories right out of the box and the ability to export each report either to Microsoft Excel or HTML.

Obviously via an Administration tool you could control user access based on roles. And as a goody the most important roles are already on board, i.e. Planner, QA-Engineer, Developer, Tester, Read-Only Role and Full Access

OATS – OpenScript

This is the development environment based on Eclipse where the Scripts that could be chosen in the TestManager’s „add Test“ functionality  are developped.

OpenScript gives you the possibility of developping Scripts for the so called Functional Testing which is simply automated Browser/GUI testing as well as the possibility of creating Scripts for Load-Testing for e.g. of Oracle Forms,  Oracle ADF applications, etc..

Further more OATS comes along with OpenScript Addons for Mozilla Firefox (at least Versoin 30 is not supported yet)  and Microsoft Internet Explorer (IE 11 works fine on my machine), that gives you the abilty to start recording Scripts from the development environment.

OATS – LoadTest

Within this part of OATS on the one hand you may define several scenarios under which the script should run., e.g. the amount of concurrent users. You also have the possibility to run the tests simulating different browsers, such as Chrome, Firefox, MSIE, Safari, etc. as well as Connection speed simulation.

As second part of this tool it gives you the possibility to gather Server Statistics, depending on predefined metric profiles that exist for Oracle Weblogic and on database side for SQL-Server and Oracle database.
