Oracle’s latest testing innovation is OATS. A very compact tool for Automation Test Engineers. Well when I say automation testing it means to cover functional regression test engineers and performance test engineers.
We generally neglect performance test experts from Automation testing group.
Introduction of OATS surely reduce that concept.
What OATS Supports:
- Web based Applications
- Oracle Application Forms
- Oracle Fusion
- Adoble Flex
So far I can see..it is going to give HP’s QTP or java based selenium a great competition.
well what made me to think so??
- Great support for functional and automation engineers in the same tool
- Basic/core java is enough for this,no need to learn Vb Scripting or Test Script Language.
- Common terminology for both (performance and functional test engineers) in terms of coding!!!
- Same script can be used for regression and load testing!! this is surely going to give customers a great help.
- Generated code is simple. Two fold architecture like tree view(for non functional or non technical persons) and code view (for technical person) helps to plan and test easily.
- Based on Document Object Model(DOM architecture). This is understood by developer also.
- As it is based on java so all java’s feature is available here!!!.
- Strong java and oracle community support.
- Support for IE and Mozila.
