1 Test Long and Prosper presented by Janet Gray July 26, 2005

2 Seek out New Life and New civilizations  The STARS Testing Team will manage testing, validation, and documentation of the functional & technical requirements in the following areas:  Set up tables  Self-Service  Reporting  Batch processes  Security  Business Processes  Modifications and Interfaces

3 When logic fails, trust a hunch  Test all modifications, interfaces, data delivery and business processes  Test all PS components & self-service with Cornell defined data, including load/stress testing and system testing  Validate all set up & security  Determine errors, report errors for resolution prior to implementation  Document all information relative to the each specific project Testing Goals

4 Humans are highly illogical  User/SME will be responsible for all test script & scenario development  Tools, resources (inc. tech support) & infrastructure available throughout implementation, fixes and upgrades  Necessary project team members will assist in problem resolution  All areas to be tested have been defined, developed & unit tested Assumptions

5 Keep your phaser set to stun  STARS test environment & instance will be kept up-to-date with all upgrades, setup tables, & patches  Conversion & test data will be reloaded “by request” after any refresh  STARS test environment should be close to production as possible Requirements

6 Don’t put all your ranking officers in one shuttlecraft  Develop testing plans  Prepare testing guidelines, procedures, & templates  Set up TestDirector for testing management  Set up tests & error reporting workflow  Monitor progress of testing plans & advise Project Manager of any slippage Testing Lead Duties

7 Don’t put all your ranking officers in one shuttlecraft continued  Coordinate with other modules for execution of testing across modules  Work with Project Manager & Tech Lead on test plan tasks  Coordinate with CIT Technical Manager the refresh of SATest Testing Lead Duties

8 Infinite Diversity in Infinite Combinations (IDIC)  Create QuickTest Pro scripts  Use TestDirector to document test results & problems, & testing management  Develop test design for functional & performance testing  Create & document test cases & data  Coordinate testing activities with CIT, functional area & other modules Testing Designer/Tester Duties

9 Infinite Diversity in Infinite Combinations (IDIC) continued  Document test results & report problems to Implementation Manager  Schedule re-execution of tests on problems

10 If it can’t be fixed, ask Scotty  Maintain infrastructure  Provide tech support for testing tools  Direct updates & fixes to database  Set up & apply security roles  Assist in remediation of errors found  Set up & apply set up tables necessary for testing Tech, Security, Setup Tables Support Duties

11 There’s no such thing as a Vulcan death grip  Perform unit testing  Troubleshoot problems arising from testing  Communicate unit testing progress to Test Lead  Work with Testing Lead on data validation planning & testing efforts Developer Duties

12 Even in our world, sometimes we are aliens  Compare & validate data between legacy systems & Oracle PeopleSoft  Report any errors to Testing Lead Conversion Validator Duties

13 Having is not so pleasing a thing as wanting, it is not logical but it is often true  Provide subject matter expertise for testing  Write test scripts used to create test steps in TestDirector Subject Matter Experts Duties

14 Logic is the beginning of wisdom; not the end  Unit Test  Test and validate individual pieces of software function as a “stand alone” unit.  Implementation at module level defect free  Verifies mods, interfaces or reports meet functional & technical requirements as outlined in the To-Be Process  User and developers work closely together before, during and after unit testing to ensure all the requirements are met.

15 Logic is the beginning of wisdom; not the end continued  Integration Testing  Using top-down method  Determines if software operates properly as each subprocess is added  Individual software tested & combined with other software, making sure all data, data sharing & links are working as specified

16 Logic is the beginning of wisdom; not the end continued  Completed after integrated processes have be successfully tested  Whole System environment test System Testing

17 Logic is the beginning of wisdom; not the end continued  Load testing will test an application against a number of users  Stress testing is load testing over an extended period of time for validation purposes Load/Stress Testing

18 You will be assimilated  All the organization standards have been followed  A check to see all original requirements have been documented & proper system implementation of those requirements Quality Assurance Testing

19 Resistance is Futile  User tests the software  Must be involved in the beginning with Oracle PeopleSoft functionality  Gain understanding how functionality fits with their business needs User Acceptance Testing

20 You do remember how to fire phasers?  Re-running of successfully executed test cases to detect failures spawned by changes or corrections made during software development & maintenance Regression Testing

21 Computer, compute to the last digit the value of pi  Test Case  A documented procedure verifying a system requirement (a test scenario)  Test Step  Use To-Be process “functional test scripts” for either manual or automated testing  Automated Test Script  Use when there are multiple data values for the same operation TestDirector Definitions

22 Enemies are often invisible – like Klingons, they can be cloaked  Data Validation from Conversion  Business Processes  PS Delivered Reporting  Interfaces  Modifications  Cross-Functional Areas Items to be Tested

23 Enemies are often invisible – like Klingons, they can be cloaked continued  RDS Canned Reports  RDS Testing  Load Testing  Stress Testing  Security Testing  Platform Testing Items to be Tested

24 Insufficient data does not compute  TestDirector  Monitor test development, progress & defect reporting  Document & run tests  LoadRunner  Run load tests  QuickTest Pro  Create & run automated testing Testing Tools

25 Boldly go where no man has gone before
