6 Application Performance and Regression Testing

The Oracle Enterprise Manager Application Testing Suite provides automated functional testing, load testing, and test management for Web, SOA-based, and packaged Oracle applications, as well as Oracle databases. The suite consists of the following separately licensed products in the Oracle Application Testing Suite:

The following sections provide licensing information for each member of the suite.

6.1 Oracle Test Manager

Oracle Test Manager licensing is based on the Oracle Named User Plus (NUP) licensing model. One NUP license seat of Oracle Test Manager is required for each user of the product.

6.2 Oracle Functional Testing

As with Oracle Test Manager, Oracle Functional Testing licensing is also based on the Oracle Named User Plus (NUP) licensing model. One NUP license seat of Oracle Functional Testing is required for each user of the product.

6.2.1 OpenScript

The OpenScript component of Oracle Functional Testing is the interface where you create and run your test automation scripts, and does not require a separate license. If you are licensed for Oracle Functional Testing, you can automatically access OpenScript and the base testing modules for Web Functional Testing and Web Load Testing script generation. Other application testing modules or accelerators developed for OpenScript may be licensed and priced separately.

6.2.2 Flow Builder

Flow Builder is the keyword-driven testing framework that is a component of Oracle Functional Testing. It provides an alternative way of creating test automation scripts where non-technical users can compose test flows by defining series of user actions that together define an application user flow instead of recording a script which is the traditional approach. These test flows are then transformed into executable test automation scripts at run time. Use of Flow Builder does not require a separate license. If you are licensed for Oracle Functional Testing, then you are entitled to use the Flow Builder keyword-driven testing framework.

6.2.3 Oracle Functional Testing Accelerators

Oracle Functional Testing Accelerators provide customized functionality to enable faster and easier automated functional testing for specific applications or technologies. These optional Accelerators are available for specific applications, and are handled as add-ons to the base Oracle Functional Testing licenses.

Each Accelerator requires an incremental NUP license added on to the Oracle Functional Testing base license for each user that requires the capabilities of a specific accelerator. You do not need to license the same number of NUP's for Functional Testing Accelerators as you would for Oracle Functional Testing. Oracle Functional Testing is simply a prerequisite for the Functional Testing accelerators, so you must purchase (or own) at least the equivalent number of NUP's of Oracle Functional Testing for Web Application before you can purchase NUP's for the accelerators.

The following Functional Testing Accelerators are currently available:

  • Functional Testing Accelerator for Web Services

    This Accelerator provides faster automated functional testing of Web Services by providing a custom module for creating Web Services scripts. This includes a Web Services wizard that enables you to create test scripts automatically from your WSDL files.

    Note:

    This functional testing accelerator, which is used for testing Oracle applications, is now licensed under the Oracle Functional Testing Suite for Oracle Applications or Oracle Load Testing Suite for Oracle Applications and can be found on the applications price lists.

6.2.4 Dependencies with Oracle Load Testing

The Oracle Application Testing Suite utilizes an integrated scripting platform for creating both automated functional testing and load testing scripts. This scripting platform comprises part of the Oracle Functional Testing product.

One license of Oracle Functional Testing is included with the Oracle Load Testing Controller to be used for creating automated test scripts for load testing. If you require additional script recorders for load test scripting or require functional testing capabilities, you must purchase separate additional licenses of Oracle Functional Testing.

6.3 Oracle Load Testing

The following licensed components are required for Oracle Load Testing:

  • Load Testing

    This component simulates the virtual users that generate a load against the application under test. Licensing for this component is based on the Oracle NUP licensing model. Each emulated human user or non-human operated device is considered a virtual user and is counted to determine the number of required NUP licenses.

  • Load Testing Controller

    This component enables you to configure load test scenarios and server monitors, then view results. Licensing for this component is based on the Oracle Processor licensing model.

6.3.1 Oracle Load Testing Accelerators

Oracle Load Testing Accelerators provide customized functionality to enable faster and easier automated load testing for specific applications or technologies. These optional Accelerators are available for specific applications, and are handled as add-ons to the base Oracle Load Testing licenses.

Each Accelerator requires an incremental NUP license added on to the Oracle Load Testing base license for each virtual user that requires the capabilities of a specific accelerator. You do not need to license the same number of NUP's (VU's) for Load Testing Accelerators as you would for Oracle Load Testing. Oracle Load Testing is simply a prerequisite for the Load Testing accelerators, so you must purchase (or own) at least the equivalent number of NUP's (VU's) of Oracle Load Testing for Web Application before you can purchase NUP's (VU's) for the accelerators.

The following Load Testing Accelerators are currently available:

  • Load Testing Accelerator for Web Services

    This Accelerator provides faster load testing of Web Services by providing a custom module for creating Web Services scripts. You can load test your Web Services by simulating concurrent virtual user clients accessing Web Service interfaces.

  • Load Testing Accelerator for Oracle Database

    This Accelerator enables you to perform direct load testing of Oracle Database using synthetic test scripts. You can also automatically generate test scripts by importing database transactions from Real Application Testing's Database Replay capture files, or by importing them from other text files containing SQL and PL/SQL statements. You can then run the test scripts across thousands of concurrent virtual users in Oracle Load Testing.

Note:

These load testing accelerators, which are used for testing Oracle applications, are now licensed under the Oracle Functional Testing Suite for Oracle Applications or Oracle Load Testing Suite for Oracle Applications and can be found on the applications price lists.

6.3.2 Dependencies with Oracle Functional Testing

See Dependencies with Oracle Load Testing.

6.3.3 Oracle Load Testing Developer Edition

The Oracle Load Testing Developer Edition is a bundled solution that includes 2 Processor licenses of Oracle Load Testing Controller and 10 NUP (virtual user) licenses of Oracle Load Testing. This solution is intended for running small load tests to enable developers to test application performance during development. You cannot upgrade this edition to a full Oracle Load Testing configuration by adding more virtual users.

6.4 Oracle Functional Testing Suite for Oracle Applications

As with Oracle Functional Testing, Oracle Functional Testing Suite for Oracle Applications licensing is also based on the Oracle Named User Plus (NUP) licensing model. One NUP license seat of Oracle Functional Testing Suite for Oracle Applications is required for each user of the product.

Note:

Oracle Functional Testing Suite for Oracle Applications is licensed from the various Oracle applications price lists.

Oracle Functional Testing Suite for Oracle Applications includes the base product Oracle Functional Testing and adds capabilities for testing Oracle applications. The following products are included in this suite:

Oracle Load Testing Suite for Oracle Applications includes the base product Oracle Load Testing and Oracle Load Testing Controller. Oracle Load Testing Suite for Oracle Applications is licensed based on the work number of virtual user that generates a load against the application under test. Licensing for this component is based on the Oracle NUP licensing model. Each emulated human user or non-human operated device is considered a virtual user and is counted to determine the number of required NUP licenses.

Note:
