About Code Tester 3.1

Code Tester for Oracle is a tool to help you test Oracle® code, written in the PL/SQL language. Code testing is generally acknowledged to be one of the biggest challenges and disappointments in the world of software.

We all know we should test our code. More than that, we all want to test our code, but there are many challenges to implementing a strong regression test of our code.

These challenges include having to write a large volume of test code, keeping that test code in synch with our application code as it changes, verifying the results of running our tests, and more.

Code Tester for Oracle tackles these challenges by making it easy to define your tests, generate your test code, and run the tests, all within an easy-to-use graphical interface.

The bottom line with Code Tester: you don't write test code. You describe your tests, and the tool then generates the test code (as a PL/SQL package) that implements your test definition.

Code Tester 3.1 is a minor release, with enhanced features and functionality.

New features

New features

A Team Coding feature was added to this release. Team Coding enables you to version your suites, test definitions, and test cases and store them in a version control system (VCS). To set up Team  Coding, follow these basic steps:

  1. Install a Team Coding repository: A Team Coding repository must be installed from Toad for Oracle on a local repository. Repositories on Toad Intelligence Central (TIC) are not supported.
  2. Configure Team Coding: A Toad for Oracle Team Coding Administrator must configure Code Tester Team Coding before users can work with it. To configure Team Coding, select Database | Team Coding | Configuration. The configuration involves:

    • Configure team settings: Select Team Settings from the navigation pane of the configuration window. Here, you select and configure the Version Control System (VCS) and set basic parameters for its use. These settings apply to all team members, regardless of their local settings (on the User Settings page).
    • Configure Team Projects: Select Team Projects from the navigation pane of the configuration window. At least one Team Project must exist for users to work with Team Coding. Name the project, select the version control system, and then select the test objects that you want to control in this team project.
    • Configure user settings: On the User Settings page, each user can set his or her own local settings if not set globally in the team settings.

The Team Coding implementation in Code Tester is similar to the one in Toad for Oracle, with the exception that Code Tester does not provide logging or compile options. For more information about using Team Coding, see the Toad for Oracle online help.





The following is a list of enhancements implemented in Code Tester 3.1.

Enhancement Issue ID

Expanded the capabilities of the Code Evolution module:

  • Code Tester tries whenever possible to keep values of inputs and outcomes when their data types are changed.
  • The Code Evolution module now can analyze not only the evolution of the data type itself but its dependencies too.
