The essence of the Oracle Cloud Application is the idea of ongoing innovation. Oracle releases updates on a quarterly basis to assist clients in managing their businesses successfully and efficiently. The Oracle Cloud 22D release, the most recent in this series, adds new functionality, features, and customer enhancements.
Unquestionably, the Oracle 22D release has several advantages. However, many Oracle users find it challenging to apply Oracle Cloud updates. The reason for this is that they might interfere with business continuity if installed without adequate testing. In this article, we’ll go over how a thorough testing strategy will reduce the chance of your Oracle Cloud account breaking, enabling you to concentrate on how to use the new features Oracle has rolled out.
Why you need automated testing for Oracle Cloud updates
By automating testing, Oracle users not only have the opportunity to test everything they need, but they are also guaranteed that their most important processes are operating as intended and are notified if anything goes wrong so they can fix it before it has an impact on the end users.
Automated Testing For Frequent Oracle Updates
The Oracle Cloud receives more than a thousand changes per update, which can occur every week or every three months. To ensure business agility and quality, continuous testing is done to find defects early and fix them right away.
Given the frequency of updates, the regularity of changes, and the essential functionality that is affected, no amount of manual testing can totally eliminate risk from core business operations. The only way to achieve the requisite business risk coverage with the needed pace is through extreme Oracle test automation.
Repeatability of Tests
With the use of automated testing technologies, testers may quickly write robust tests that need little upkeep. The test suite may be seamlessly updated as application needs change with each release or update. With each Oracle cloud update, these automated testing tools may identify the tests that are impacted, hence reducing risks.
Good Test Coverage
Insufficient test coverage is one of the greatest problems with Oracle testing. With each upgrade, numerous functional and non-functional properties are added, changed, or removed. The overall test coverage is constrained by the small number of test scripts that can be manually executed. An automated testing strategy must be used to adequately cover the test.
