Very compatible with Oracle Forms and the object identification feature is very valuable, but the tool does lag from time to time
Pros and Cons
  • "The most valuable feature is the object identification feature."
  • "Oracle Application Testing Suite does encounter some lag. When I am trying to record something, the tool gets stuck."

What is our primary use case?

We use the solution for functional testing. We have scenarios related to Oracle applications where we need to create a purchase order, for example, and we use it for the automation perspective. We use it for regression testing.

We currently have five projects that we are working on. Each project requires ten members. We have approximately 60 people using the solution. The teams are made up of leads, software developers, and engineers. The experience level is anywhere from intermediate to growth level.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the object identification feature, the recording feature is the prime feature that open script has. I also like the connectivity with Oracle Forms, it is very compatible.

What needs improvement?

I have heard that some support will not be provided by Oracle after June. Going forward, if there are any issues with the tool, or if the recording feature with Edge is not available, there is Chrome, IE, and Firefox, however, IE is already decommissioned because of security concerns. I would like the solution to record the Edge browser.

In future releases, I would like Oracle to scan only one particular application and to make sure that all the elements are recorded in it. This way, we only have to change minor details.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using Oracle Application Testing Suite for five years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Oracle Application Testing Suite does encounter some lag. When I am trying to record something, the tool gets stuck.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The solution is able to record various web-based applications, including Tableau which uses its own flex framework and imaged-based recording is available. It is a very scalable tool.

How are customer service and support?

We have raised tickets to Oracle Application Testing Suite technical support. Depending on the severity and what we require from Oracle, they are always receptive. Support is very good.

How would you rate customer service and support?

Neutral

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Before Oracle Application Testing Suite we were using UFT. We chose Oracle because we also use Oracle Forms. The two solutions are very compatible.

How was the initial setup?

I have been doing the setup for many years, so it is easy for me. We also have the documentation available, making it quite easy to set up.

It takes a total of one hour to set up, including installations of Java versions and Chrome browser.

What about the implementation team?

We install Oracle Application Testing Suite ourselves in-house.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We have looked into Tosca. Tosca only scans the particular application and all the elements are recorded onto it. We then only have to change minor details. 

Personally, I also looked at POC and Selenium for the web application. Selenium can be integrated and has many add-ons that can be added, like customized reports. However, we need to work with Oracle Forms and Selenium cannot automate this.

What other advice do I have?

Any organization looking to use Oracle Application Testing Suite needs to understand the kind of application they want to automate. If it's automatable, or if it's a web application, I would suggest open source tools like Selenium.

If you want to use Oracle Application Testing, which has a number of features, then it can be helpful. It will record, and deal with the performance testing and load testing.

I would rate the solution a six and a half out of ten.
