Automatic Application Testing


Automatic Application Testing

In a mission critical environment it is good practice to test the behavior of the applications before any change at the infrastructure level, version of the Oracle database, changes in its configuration, etc. So, NUCLI has a long and proven experience in the field of tools that allow the testing of applications. The use of this type of tools minimizes the cost of implementation and execution of the testing of the applications as well as ensuring that the testing reflects the totality of the activity of the applications they perform in the Oracle database instances.

The NUCLI methodology acquired during the execution of hundreds of transformations of Oracle databases (platform, version, configuration, architecture, ..) is based on the necessary execution of functional and stress tests on the applications on the transformed environment. There are many times that it is not easy to implement stress tests, above all, to reproduce an activity identical to that performed in a production environment. Due to fact, it is very important to have a method that guarantees the execution of some stress tests that are based on the real reproduction of the activity of the applications on the transformed environment. 

The approach of these projects goes through a careful taking of requirements and knowledge of the global environment, a extensive definition of the change process, environment testing with clear definition of the adjustments to be made and, when necessary, the use of technology to move data when there is no standstill window
