More Oracle Application Testing Suite Pros →

"The ease-of-use and quality of the overall product are above average.""Customer service and technical support responsiveness are high. Everyone is very professional.""It works very fine. It is fast on almost any machine, and it is also very well organized. I like its object mapping and its capability to find and interact with almost everything that exists on Windows.""The solution has a very nice interface.""It is very easy to maintain tests with this tool. It covers all necessary items in the test plan. The most painful item in testing is maintenance. When changes occur, the tests should be maintained.""The database checkpoints detect problems which are difficult for a human resource to find.""When compared to other tools, it is very simple.""The most valuable features of the SmartBear TestComplete are self-healing, they reduce the maintenance required. The different languages SmartBear TestComplete supports are good because some of our libraries are written in Python, JavaScript, and C#. It's very easy to put them all under one project and use them. The are other features that SmartBear TestComplete has but the competition widely has them as well."

Cons
"Oracle Application Testing Suite could improve by offering desktop-based application automation. It is lacking in this area at the moment.""Oracle Application Testing Suite does encounter some lag. When I am trying to record something, the tool gets stuck."

More Oracle Application Testing Suite Cons →

"In the cross-browser domain, it has a few snags with Microsoft Edge and Chrome; although, these problems are not critical.""There could be API interfaces with this tool.""To bring it up to a 10, I would be looking for the addition of some key functional API testing.""Name Mapping feature should be clearer. Whenever I use it, I do not really know what will work and what will not work.""Right now, the product only supports Windows.""In SmartBear TestComplete the integration with Jenkins could be easier. Additionally, some of the controls could have better customization options. For example, if a grid is used and it contains multiple controls within it, it can be a checkbox, radio button, or any kind of control, the way the Object Spy is operating currently there is a lot of room for improvement.""If that engine could better identify more XPaths automatically and make the process more flexible, that would be better.""Stability issues occurred only when connecting to the SourceSafe. Sometimes, after getting the latest version, the tool hangs and it should be reopened in order to recover."

  • More Oracle Application Testing Suite Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "The licensing costs are in the range of $1,000 to $3,000."
  • "The license price for a physical machine is cheap, and for virtual machine, it is very expensive."
  • "Our ROI is about $10,000 a year."
  • "The pricing is a little above average — it could be lower."
  • "It costs a few hundred per year, but I am not sure. It is not at all expensive as compared to other tools."
  • "We have a TestComplete 12 license."
  • "The price of SmartBear TestComplete could be less. The main challenge is when it comes to node-locked. They should use a subscription model, such as a monthly-based subscription or, a quarterly-based subscription. Their floating license is very expensive, and this high price should be reduced or provide, at a minimum, a subscription model."
