9 9 Infrastructure Testing Response time testing –Unit testing for response time Throughput testing –To uncover concurrency related issues Significant benefits over traditional tools –Production system behavior emulation –No script development or maintenance Basic Requirements

10 10 Data-Tier Testing: SQL Response Time

11 11 Test and measure change impact on response time using real, production SQL statements Identify all plan changes and/or regressions Eliminate SQL regressions with SQL Tuning Advisor and SQL Plan Baselines For data warehouse workloads SPA Exadata simulation helps estimate I/O savings without provisioning Exadata hardware Response Time Testing with SPA SQL Plans + Stats before change Compare SQL Performance Analysis Report SQL Workload STS SQL Plans + Stats after change

12 12 Data-Tier Testing: Throughput and Concurrency

13 13 Throughput Testing using DB Replay Database load and performance testing with real production workloads –Production workload characteristics such as timing, transaction dependency, think time, etc., fully maintained Test and measure transaction throughput improvements Identify application scalability and concurrency problems Remediate issues pre-production for risk-free migration Test Production Replay Driver Clients Storage

14 14 Mid-Tier Testing: Application Replay Captures and replays actual production workload Maintains all production characteristics during replay such as timing, order, concurrency, dependency, etc. Like DB Replay but for the mid-tier Benefits –Faster testing –No script development or maintenance –Better testing –Real production workloads –Broader workflow coverage: captures all flows that arise in practice Authentic replay with minimal divergence Automatic user requests capture Automatic Http-DB Synchronization Automatic request correlation

15 15 Benefits of Infrastructure Testing Solutions Comparison of LoadRunner & Database Replay DB Replay: ½ month LoadRunner: 7 ½ months Total Testing Time X

16 149 Days To:From: Complete workflows Partial workflows Low risk High risk Automated Manual intensive Production workloads Artificial workloads Days of development Months of development Benefits of Infrastructure Testing Solutions

18 18 Application Testing If change is within the application –New version or patch –Any customization of application –New functionality Application Testing Suite –Synthetic testing of any changes to application stack or the application logic

19 19 Application Testing Modularization Maintainability Script Robustness Portability Auto-correlation Basic Requirements

20 20 Ability to break complex flow into chained flows that are shorter and self-contained –ERP apps like EBS have test flows that often span multiple modules –Test data (input as well as output/results) must move across scripts Enter & Book order Pick Release & Ship Order Generate Invoice Create Receipt Order Mgmnt Shipping Receivables Result output Order to Cash business flow Modularization

21 21 Maintainability Ability to create function libraries for frequently used functions –Function blocks like "log-in"/"log-out" or other well used functions may be added as function libraries to make test assets easier to maintain and use

22 22 Portability Ability to port test assets to different environments –Example: Parameterize FORMS connection for better ”portability” nca.connect(317,ConnectMode.Socket,"{{db.myEBSsystem.hostname,EBSServer.mycompa ny.com}}", Integer.parseInt(eval("{{db.myEBSsystem.Forms_Port,9000}}")),""); Recorded value Databank file column used Databank file Indicates Databank variable Update Databank file with new HOST and PORT info when a new test system is used instead of changing in ALL scripts

23 23 Script Robustness Ability to identify objects that can withstand minor changes –Eliminates need to redevelop scripts frequently Oracle Functional Testing’s accelerators for Oracle applications provides pre-built and optimized object identification rules for EBS, Fusion, Siebel –Provides best possible and most reliable/robust scripts –Can reduce script development by up to 50% Functional Testing

24 24 Auto-correlation Ability to auto-correlate so that manual modifications are not required –Quicker scripting and more time to do actual testing Oracle Load Testing accelerators for Oracle applications provides pre-built correlation rules for: –E-Business Suite –Fusion –Siebel –JD Edwards Enterprise One Load Testing

25 25 Oracle Application Testing Suite Supports –Functional/regression testing –Load/Performance testing –Test Management –Web, Siebel, EBS/Forms, ADF, Flex, DB & WebServices Reduce scripting time by ~50% Automatic test asset (script) generation –Load scripts auto-generated using RUEI and Real Application Testing Smart integration with EM diagnostics –JVM Diagnostics for mid-tier –DB diagnostics for data-tier

26 26 Application Testing Suite Integrated solution for automated functional, load testing and test process management Custom testing accelerators for Oracle Applications, e.g., EBS, Siebel, Fusion, JD Edwards Test Starter Kits for both functional and load testing OpenScript integrated scripting platform for load and functional testing –Intuitive visual scripting interface –Java IDE for powerful extensibility Built-in server monitors and integration with EM Diagnostics to identify performance bottlenecks under load Scalable enterprise architecture built on WLS and Oracle DB Key Features

28 28 Data Masking Application integrity –Generation of data compliant with the application’s requirements Data integrity –Maintaining PK/FK relationship integrity even when primary keys are masked Automated data-relationship discovery –Discovery of sensitive data and relationships across enterprise databases Enterprise-wide rule definition –Defining masking policies for all enterprise databases from a central dashboard Performance –Time taken to execute the entire masking process Basic Requirements

29 29 Data Masking Reporting –Rich reporting to enable enterprises track and report masking processes Preset pack of rules –Pre-defined set of rules that allows enterprises to use the solution immediately Integration into SLC platforms –Integration of data masking with application development and testing tools DB agnostic –Support for all major databases from mainframe to relational databases O/S agnostic –Availability on all the major operating system platforms Basic Requirements

30 30 Oracle Data Discovery and Modeling Application Data Model (ADM) –Scans application schemas to model relationships between tables and columns –Extract data relationships from Oracle Applications meta-data –Store referential relationships stored in repository –Enables test data operations such as data sub-setting, masking Sensitive Data Discovery –Pattern-based database scanning –Import from pre-built mask templates –Pre-built Data Masking templates for Oracle applications

31 31 Oracle Data Masking Deploy secure test system by masking sensitive data Sensitive data never leaves the production database Extensible template library and policies for automation Sophisticated masking: Condition-based, compound, deterministic, at-source Integrated masking and cloning LAST_NAMESSNSALARY HODGES111 — ,000 JOHNSON ,000 LAST_NAMESSNSALARY AGUILAR ,000 BENSON ,000 ProductionTest

32 32 Masking Techniques Support Compound masking –Multi-column groups, e.g. address (street, city, state, zip) Condition-based masking –Mask national identifiers, e.g. social security number, by country-specific format Deterministic (Repeatable) –Repeatable consistent masking, e.g. referential integrity across databases, or consistency across refreshes Reversible –Key-based format preserving masking, e.g. outsourced data processing Shuffle –Randomization within population set. Perturbation –Random mask generation around a value, e.g. date of birth At-Source Masking –Ability to mask data as it leaves production, i.e., at the source

33 33 Automatic data extraction rules from ADM Estimate subset before execution Parameter-driven dynamic subset generation Unique to Oracle: Data Pump-based subset creation Oracle Data Subsetting Define new Application Data Model Create Data Subset Definition Extract Data Subset Export / Import In-Place Delete Production Test
