Table 1: Database requirements



Database client

An Oracle client must be installed and configured on the system where you are running Code Tester. The following are supported:

  • Oracle Client or Instant Client
  • Oracle Client or Instant Client
  • Oracle Client or Instant Client 12c Release 1 and 2

Note: You must use the 32-bit version of Code Tester with the 32-bit Oracle client, and the 64-bit version of Code Tester with the 64-bit Oracle client.

Database server

Oracle versions:
  • 10g, 10g R2
  • 11g, 11g R2
  • 12c, 12c Release 2


Code Tester has been tested on Oracle Exadata 2.0 running Oracle database 11g R2.

Important: It is recommended that your client version be of the same release (or later) as your database server. This is an Oracle recommendation to prevent performance issues.

Cloud database server Oracle Database as a Service on Amazon EC2 and Oracle Cloud.
Database privileges

The schema in which you install Code Tester must have these privileges:










  • Code Tester will create a schema with the necessary privileges as part of the installation process, when the create new user and install into new user schema option is selected on Step 2 of the Repository Wizard.
  • We recommend that you install Code Tester into its own schema, and create public synonyms so that all developers will be able to use Code Tester and share their test definitions. This will also help you keep application code distinct from the Code Tester code base. To do this, your schema must also have CREATE and DROP PUBLIC SYNONYM privileges.
  • The Code Tester repository schema and any schema executing a test require the execute privilege on the DBMS_RANDOM package.


Internet Protocol Version 6 (IPv6) is being adopted by the US Federal Government and industries around the world. In its most basic format, the new protocol uses 128-bit addresses instead of 32-bit addresses, which are used by the current IPv4 to route packets over the Internet. Code Tester for Oracle features, such as FTP, access the Internet through third-party vendors that are IPv6 compliant, such as /nSoftware's IP*Works.

Virtualization support

Before installing Code Tester for Oracle, review the following for virtualization support:

  • Code Tester for Oracle has been tested with vWorkspace 7.0.
  • Oracle VM 3.1.1 running on Windows Server 2008 R2 with Oracle 11g R2.

Note: Code Tester may work in virtualization environments other than the ones in which it was tested.
