Axe and Oracle Application Testing Suite (ATS)

Odin Technology is an Oracle Gold Partner with the Axe Platform integrating closely with the Oracle Application Testing Suite (ATS)

Axe enables generalist testers to define and maintain automated tests in simple, natural language Spreadsheet tables. It uses code generation techniques to create OpenScript scripts in Java as well as entries in OTM, including Test Steps and associated Openscript entries.

Essentially, Axe empowers generalist testers to leverage the automated testing capabilities of the Oracle Application Testing Suite without the need to code, improving team collaboration on Automation initiatives.

Overview
Overview
Axe is installed alongside OpenScript on a Tester’s workstation. Axe project assets are managed in a version control system.
Outline Tests in OTM
Outline Tests in OTM
Outline test items can be created in OTM with a Custom Field for the Axe ID. These are linked to requirements in the normal way but rather than fill in Detailed Test Steps for the test we work in the Axe ITE Spreadsheet view.
Define Detail in Axe Spreadsheet Structure

Define Detail in Axe Spreadsheet Structure

Using a simple Spreadsheet like structure, a non-technical tester can define test scenarios from very simple tests to complex integrated end to end processes. A fully integrated test design environment enhances the test definition and design process.
Generate OpenScript Scripts and Documentation

Generate OpenScript Scripts and Documentation

Axe uses code generation techniques to interpret the Spreadsheet based test designs and generates fully functioning OpenScript Scripts in Java. At the same time detailed design steps in natural language are generated that document the tests. These can be run locally to debug and confirm they are correct.
Commit OTM

Commit to OTM

All assets can be checked into Version Control and committed to OTM. The test item is updated with the detailed test steps, and the OpenScript script location attached to the test. A fully documented and automated test!
Execute and Analyse using OTM

Execute and Analyse using OTM

Tests can now be executed using the powerful test management features of OTM, including all traceability and analysis tools, as if the scripts were created by hand. Leveraging the strengths of the automated testing features without the complexity.
