EBS 12.1.1 Test Starter Kit now Available for Oracle Application Testing Suite

Steven Chan
Senior Director
We've discussed automated testing tools for the E-Business Suite several times on this blog, since testing is such a key part of everyone's implementation lifecycle.  An important part of our testing arsenal in E-Business Suite Development is the Oracle Application Testing Suite.  The Oracle Application Testing Suite (OATS) is built on the foundation of the e-TEST suite of products acquired from Empirix  in 2008.  The testing suite is comprised of:    1. Oracle Load Testing for scalability, performance, and load testing    2. Oracle Functional Testing for automated functional and regression testing    3. Oracle Test Manager for test process management, test execution, and defect tracking Oracle Application Testing Suite 9.0 has been supported for use with the E-Business Suite since 2009.  I'm very pleased to let you know that our E-Business Suite Release 12.1.1 Test Starter Kit is now available for Oracle Application Testing Suite 9.1.  You can download it here:

Oracle E-Business Suite Accelerators Now Available Starting with OATS 9.0, the Applications Testing Suite includes Oracle E-Business Suite Accelerators, which offer support for automated functional testing and load testing for both Oracle E-Business Suite Releases 11i and 12. In addition to using the sample Test Starter Kits that we provide, you can now create test scripts that automate both E-Business Suite Web and Oracle Forms-based screens. Using the OpenScript graphical scripting interface, your end-users can record automated test scripts by stepping through their Oracle E-Business Suite business transactions in their browsers. You can use the same interface to run scripts, parameterize script inputs, add custom test cases to validate content and extend scripts programmatically in Java. You can also use the same interface to create automated load test scripts for Oracle Load Testing to simulate thousands of concurrent virtual users. Your feedback is welcome Our OATS team is very interested in hearing your feedback about how well this suite of testing tools (and the Test Starter Kit) meets your testing requirements.  If you post any comments here about your experiences with these tools, I'll be sure to pass them on to the OATS team.   Related Articles

    Steven, This is great information. I am trying to install this so I can demo it to a customer, but I keep getting hung up on setup status "Deploying oracle application testing suite, this may take a few minutes..." at about 75% complete. - Any Ideas?


  • Steven Chan Friday, April 30, 2010

    Stephen,

    Glad to hear that you're giving this a try, but I'm sorry to hear that you're having trouble with it.

    I've passed your comment on to the OATS team, but in case they don't get back to you quickly, your best bet would be to log a formal Service Request via My Oracle Support (formerly Metalink) to get one of our specialists engaged.

    Regards,

    Steven

    Steven,

    Excellent tips and information for load testing with R12 EBS. It was a pleasure meeting you at Collaborate.

    Cheers,

    Ben


  • David Gardner Wednesday, May 12, 2010

    We've downloaded the starter kit and have attempted to run ap_tsk_ap_launch script but can't get beyond the browser window. We have tried it with and without changing the ebs.properties file (using supplied URL and our URL for our own R12 Vision database), however neither launch. Any ideas of what could be the problem?


  • Steven Chan Wednesday, May 12, 2010

    Hi, David,

    I don't have enough hands-on experience with OATS to make any suggestions, I'm afraid. I think that your best bet would be to log a formal Service Request via My Oracle Support (formerly Metalink) to get one of our specialists engaged.

    Please feel free to forward your Service Request number to me if it gets stuck in the support process for some reason.

    Regards,

    Steven

  • Garry Monday, August 30, 2010

    What are people deploying OATS onto in terms of supporting Infrastructure - I've seen the minimum specs but am curious for the OATS load component how it scales up


  • Steven Chan Monday, August 30, 2010

    Hello, Garry,

    I don't have a lot of visibility into that, but I've asked the OATS team whether they'd like to comment on this. If they don't reply here, your best bet might be to contact your Oracle account manager to get some assistance on sizing your OATS servers.

    Regards,

    Steven


  • Iain Sear Friday, June 24, 2011

    Hello Steven,

    A quick quesiton, we have QTP and are looking at the Test Starter Kit availability in note [ID 239746.1]. Now Oracle has OATS will we continue to have new QTP scripts for R12?

    Regards,

    Iain


  • Steven Chan Friday, June 24, 2011

    Hello, Iain,

    Our internal development efforts are focussed around producing scripts for OATS at this point. The existing QTP Test Starter Kits will continue to be available for download, but I would not expect any new ones to be produced now.

    Regards,

    Steven

  • Kalidas Saturday, August 25, 2012

    Hi Steven,

    Is there anyway to access the objects of the OTM (like we do with QTP - QC using the OTA client). We are looking for similar features in OTM, through which we could trigger the scripts from OTM and access the Testlab pragmatically and update the steps & screenshots to the corresponding steps in the OTM testlab through java codes.

    Regards,

    Kalidas


  • Steven Chan Monday, August 27, 2012

    Hi, Kalidas,

    I'm assuming that "OTM" stands for "Oracle Transportation Management"?

    I'm afraid that I don't know. I don't have experience with OTM. Your best bet would be to log a formal Service Request via My Oracle Support (formerly Metalink) to get one of our OTM specialists engaged.

    Regards,

    Steven


  • Kalidas Monday, August 27, 2012

    Hi Steven,

    Sorry for no being clear about my question. "OTM" - i meant "Oracle Test Manager", the OATS test management tool to store and run automated scripts.

    You suggestions would be helpful.

    Regards,

    Kalidas


  • Steven Chan Monday, August 27, 2012

    Hi, Kalidas,

    Ah, I see. I'm afraid that my reply still stands. We're not OATS specialists on this blog. Your best bet would be to log a Service Request against the OATS team on this one.

    Regards,

    Steven


  • Kalidas Monday, August 27, 2012

    Hi Steven,

    Thanks for your prompt reply. I have some other query, I have been trying to get the EBS Test Starter Kit for web services, all i am getting is the functional and load testing ones only. It will be great if you can guide me on that. And I am really sorry for bothering you.

    Regards,

    Kalidas


  • Steven Chan Tuesday, August 28, 2012

    Hi, Kalidas,

    I'm not all that familiar with the Test Starter Kit contents, but I'm pretty certain that they only contain functional and load-related tests. The Kits listed above are all of the kits that are available.

    Regards,

    Steven

    I am trying to find out from our ICT department if it is possible to transfer employees from one payroll to the other within the Oracle EB Suite 12.1 on the HRMS Module.

    Any ideas?

  • Pramod Friday, August 16, 2013

    Hi Steven,

    Do we need to buy if we need to test it?

    Thanks,

    Pramod


  • Steven Chan Friday, August 16, 2013

    Hi, Pramod,

    I'm not sure what "it" refers to.

    You can download trial versions of Oracle Application Testing Suite.

    The Test Starter Kit is available free of charge from My Oracle Support. You need a valid My Oracle Support support licence.

    Regards,

    Steven

  • Pradeep Thursday, August 6, 2015

    Do we have std data upload template available under OATS to upload the data as a part of the automated testing?

    e.g If we would like to book the sales order using

    -

    Oracle Functional Testing Suite for Oracle Applications

    and we have 100 different types of sales order.

    My idea is to provide the 100 different sales order into the template

    Regards,

    Pradeep


  • Prasanti Madireddi Monday, August 10, 2015

    Pradeep,

    OATS has a feature to upload multiple data sets for an automated scripts. There would not be any standard upload template. User has to create the template in which he would like to upload the data.

    The business process of processing a sales order can be different for each customer and hence a standard template will not suffice. Based on the automated script you have created, you can generate the template to upload multiple sets of data.

    Regards,

    Prasanti.


  • Hany Saturday, January 23, 2016

    Hi Steven,

    I just want to simulate 6000 user logins to eBS 12.1.3 which software I should use? OpenScript or OLT? Are there standalone version of OLT or I need to download the full OTAS suite?

    BR

    Hany


  • Steven Chan Monday, January 25, 2016

    Hi, Hany,

    I'm afraid that I'm not a specialist in this area. I'd recommend logging a Service Request against our OATS product for guidance on this.

    Regards,

    Steven


  • guest Tuesday, January 26, 2016

    Hi Hany,

    To simulate 6000 user logins, you definitely need Oracle Load Testing Suite (OLT) for Oracle Applications. You can create the load scripts using openscript and use OLT to run it. You need to license Load Testing Suite for Oracle Applications (let me know if you need licensing details).

    Oracle Load Testing is a separate product in the Oracle Application Testing Suite. To download it, you need to downloads the whole Suite. Please let me know if you need more information.
