The Oracle Functional Testing Suite Advanced Pack for Oracle E-Business Suite 12.2.4 complements and extends the starter pack of 3,600 test components and 230 test flows delivered with the Oracle Functional Testing Suite and its Oracle Flow Builder capability. The starter pack components and flows also have been forward-ported to 12.2.4.

Some Background on Automating Testing with Oracle Application Testing Suite and Oracle Flow Builder     

Testing complex packaged applications like Oracle E-Business Suite can be time-consuming and challenging for organizations, hampering their ability to upgrade to latest releases or apply latest patches. Oracle Functional Testing Suite, the functional and regression testing component of the Oracle Application Testing Suite, offers a unique and powerful testing platform for Oracle E-Business Suite and other Oracle applications.

Starting with the 12.3.0.1 release of Oracle Application Testing Suite, we introduced the Oracle Flow Builder testing framework and accompanying starter pack of pre-built test components and flows. Using Oracle Flow Builder, even non-technical testers can create working test scripts using the pre-built components that Oracle provides. Each component represents an atomic test operation such as “create an invoice batch” or “apply an invoice hold.” Testers can assemble the pre-built components into test flows, and combine test flows with spreadsheet data to drive the testing of multiple data conditions. The Oracle Flow Builder framework allows customers to add, modify and extend the pre-built components to address new functionality and customizations of the Oracle E-Business Suite.

Using Oracle Flow Builder’s component-based test generation framework instead of a traditional record/playback approach has allowed the EBS Quality Assurance team to reduce their test automation effort by 60%. E-Business Suite customers can significantly reduce their test automation effort using Oracle Application Testing Suite with Oracle Flow Builder and the pre-built test components and flows that Oracle provides.

Oracle Functional Testing Suite Advanced Pack for Oracle E-Business Suite Improves Test Coverage

With the new Oracle Functional Testing Suite Advanced Pack for Oracle E-Business Suite 12.2.4, we are delivering a significant number of additional test components and flows beyond those contained in the Oracle Flow Builder starter pack for 12.2.4. These additional test components and flows provide 70-80% test coverage and enable the automation of detailed and complex test flows across the Oracle E-Business Suite products.

    Hi Steven:

    What tool does Oracle use internally on their EBS environment for performance and functional testing.

    Thank you,

    -Samson

    Hi, Samson,

    We use the tool above, for EBS QA functional testing. We use a combination of other tools, including older ones like WinRunner and LoadRunner, for load testing.

    Regards,

    Steven
