Analyzing Oracle Forms Test Scripts

Once you have generated a test script you can determine if the script runs without error by performing a Try Script run. A Try Script run determines if a script accurately recreates the recorded interactions.

Default option settings for Try Script runs include live display of data downloaded during testing and the writing of log and report files.

With Try Script runs, only a single virtual user is run and the stress test option is enabled so that there is no think-time delay between transactions.

  1. In Silk Performer, click Try Script on the workflow bar. The Try Script dialog box opens.
  2. Check the Animated Run with TrueLog Explorer check box to view page transitions during the Try Script run.
  3. Click Run.
    Note: You are not running an actual load test here, only a test run to see if your script requires debugging.
    The Try Script run begins. The Monitor pane opens, giving you detailed information about the progress of the run.
  4. Silk Performer opens, showing you the data that is downloaded during the Try Script run.

    Each main Oracle Forms window accessed during recording is listed as a high-level API node in the TrueLog Explorer menu tree. All recorded actions are listed as subnodes.

  5. If any errors occur during the Try Script run, TrueLog Explorer will assist you in locating them and customizing your script.
