The Functional / Cross-functional test development group ensures customers get the highest quality on our flagship product, The Oracle Database. Every release more and more complex features are added to the database, which in many cases need a specialized test framework to be designed & developed. All the test scenarios / applications need to be fully automated, starting from the setup to the final result verification. This is very important, since running of tests is scheduled by an automated system. Our automated test framework runs 5000+ hours worth of tests every day. To-date we have developed over 430,000 test scenarios validating over 17 million lines of code with a good code coverage
