Oracle Forms Testing Challenge

Agile development methods were implemented at this global retailer for all enterprise applications but one. Warehousing operations, managed by a customized Oracle Forms application running Retek RDM, could not accommodate automated functional and regression testing. Processes that worked in other systems failed against the complexity of the Oracle Forms infrastructure. As a result, teams of Oracle Forms developers were unable to follow agile development best-practices, and untested code put the production system stability at risk. Too much friction, too much time, and too much uncertainty surrounded the Oracle Forms development cycle.
Oracle Automated Testing Solution

Solution

AuraTester solved the problem, bringing automation capabilities to Oracle Forms and allowing the small test team to rapidly develop a comprehensive automated test bed in less than 30 days. AuraTester’s test output formats (Java and Web services) easily accommodated the team’s exiting test practices, including the Ruby programming language and the Taza test framework. AuraTester‘s reporting mechanism aids developers with rapid resolutions, allowing the release of fully tested code modifications on time and without destabilizing the production system. Over 100 automated tests are run daily, allowing the full test coverage of the entire enterprise stack.
