Enterprise Manager at OOW 2015

Well, another Oracle Open World has bit the dust, and as is always the case, there was a lot of great material presented, both by Oracle employees and customers. To help you identify the material and get your hands on the presentations where possible, I’ve taken a stab at grouping all the material together into sections. These are the areas the presenters identified the material as covering, so if the title doesn’t seem to match that area blame the presenters. 🙂

Note that not all presentations have been loaded, for a variety of reasons. I’ll try to update this material as I can, so if you’re looking for a presentation and it’s not yet loaded, come back later for a second look. Some of the material has been identified as crossing multiple sections below, so where relevant I have listed the presentation under multiple headings.

Application Quality Management

Component-Based Unit Testing of Oracle ADF Applications with Selenium [CON2866]
Richard Olrichs, Senior Oracle Fusion Middleware Developer, MN
Wilfred van der Deijl, Oracle ACE Director, The Future Group
Everybody knows that unit testing is valuable and makes it easy to check whether a piece of code still works after a change, thereby facilitating change and agility. It also provides living documentation and a basic understanding of the unit’s functionality. Yet, despite these benefits, people have been reluctant to use unit testing with the Oracle Application Development Framework (Oracle ADF) Task Flows functionality, while the Oracle ADF architecture is component-based and thus suitable for these types of tests. Unit tests for custom task flows don’t have to know about all the low-level HTML but can simply interact with Oracle ADF components. This session demonstrates implementation and best practices to create these types of tests using JUnit and Selenium.
