Oracle Cloud’s quarterly updates require day-one testing on staging environments to keep up with the update’s general availability, which is critical to your business’ success. Tricentis Tosca provides fast, resilient, and risk-based testing to ensure your critical end-to-end business processes will continue to work as expected after Oracle Cloud updates go live.

Discover key features that support Oracle application with Tosca 2023.1

Tosca provides native support for Oracle Fusion applications, enriched with self-healing, AI-powered automation that enables you to build resilient tests based on mockups.

The Oracle Fusion application landscape is vast, consisting of a broad range of applications and JavaScript frameworks. As a result, automating Oracle Fusion and ensuring the stability of automated tests after Oracle quarterly updates demands extended automation capabilities. Previously, Tosca leveraged HTML and ARIA element identification for Oracle Fusion apps, but now, with the addition of Oracle Application Development Framework (ADF) element identification, Tosca 2023.1 LTS is enhancing its capabilities even further to ensure optimal automation results for Oracle Fusion apps. By utilizing Oracle’s unique JavaScript framework to identify objects, Tosca 2023.1 LTS empowers users to achieve more effective and resilient automation, even for the most complex objects.

How does Tosca 2023.1 manage the complexity of Oracle Fusion?

Tosca, a model-based test automation tool, provides native support for Oracle applications, including Oracle Fusion. With Tosca’s native Oracle engine, you can ensure resilient test automation specifically designed for Oracle Fusion, reducing the time and effort required to create customized test scripts. Tosca also leverages reusable automation models to ensure that any changes made to applications are automatically synchronized. In this way, teams can remain up to date with each new release.

Tackles frequent updates

Testing Oracle Fusion applications can be challenging due to their complexity and frequent updates and upgrades. Each update can affect the functionality and performance of the application, requiring test scripts to be updated accordingly.

Addresses complexity and customization

Additionally, automating tests for Oracle Fusion may lead to a high degree of customization in each implementation. This means that test scripts need to be tailored to the specific implementation, which can be time-consuming and requires significant expertise.

One of the challenges of automating tests for Oracle Fusion applications is that they use a variety of UI controls such as tables, grids, trees, and pop-up windows. These controls can be difficult for test automation tools to identify and interact with, especially when they are highly customized. Moreover, many of these controls require specific interactions, such as drag and drop, context menu, or right-click, which can be challenging to automate.

Oracle Fusion applications are built on the Java-based ADF framework, which provides a set of standard components and a declarative approach to UI design. However, existing test automation tools cannot identify these ADF components and interact with them in a way that mimics user actions.

Integrates with other apps

Finally, Oracle Fusion applications often have a large number of integrations with other systems, making it necessary to test the end-to-end functionality of the entire system. This requires a robust testing tool that can handle complex scenarios and provide comprehensive testing coverage.
