UTA Features - Iterative Execution Support

Anthony Shorten
Senior Principal Product Manager

In Oracle Utilities Testing Accelerator, the server based execution engine was introduced, as the default execution engine, to complement the original Eclipse based engine. This engine was restricted to a single manual execution of a flow with the related data. In this release, the engine has been expanded to not only support Flow Test Data Sets and Flow Subroutines but to support multiple executions, also known as Iterative Executions. This capability allows multiple test executions to be executed iterating through relevant Flow Test Data Sets. This allows testers to test complex scenarios or simply prepare data for other tests.

When specifying an execution, there is now a Iterative execution type that allows number of iterations and the list of available Flow Test Data Sets to use for the iterations. For example:

Example Iterative Executions

    Aside from Single and Iterative execution type, can UTA perform simultaneous execution (performance test)?
  • Anthony Shorten Tuesday, September 22, 2020
    UTA does not do performance testing for mass simultaneous execution. Only records performance of each call for each execution for performance of components not users.
    As I pointed out before, we are not a load testing product.
