Reduce testing effort for Oracle EBS applications with Oracle Flow Builder

Oracle Flow Builder (OFB) allows testers to create test automation scripts by providing a sequence of keywords to mimic user actions in a test automation script. Unlike other frameworks, Oracle Flow Builder comes with pre-defined keywords for testing Oracle E-Business Suite applications and rich pre-built test content in form of over 2100 components and 200 test automation flows. The pre-built test content can easily be modified for any customizations in the applications and testers can create new components using Oracle Flow Builder's browser based user interface or through a Microsoft  Excel template for off line creation. OFB can reduce test script creation efforts with up to 60% compared to traditional record/playback. OFB is designed and used by the EBS Quality Assurance team. OFB can help customers reduce the time and expertise needed to create and maintain automated test scripts for Oracle E-Business Suite releases 12.1.3 and 12.2. OFB reduces the manual process flow testing effort for deployment of enhancements or a new Rollout/implementation into production. This paper provides an Overview of OFB with a demonstration of building and executing an end-to-end business process test case.
