5.5 Example 3: Adding Tests

You can add two types of test cases to Oracle Test Manager:

Manual tests - these are tests that allow you to organize your test cases. For each step in the test, you enter the action, expected result, and pertinent comments. When you run the test, the Oracle Test Manager Manual Test Wizard takes you step by step through the test, allowing you to manually execute each test and enter the result.

Automated tests - these are Oracle OpenScript tests that can be run automatically without manual intervention. You can run one test, an entire branch of tests, or all automatic tests in the project.

This example has two parts. The first part explains how to add a manual test. The second part explains how to create the same test using Oracle OpenScript and add it as an automated test.

5.5.1 Adding a Manual Test

This example explains how to add a manual test.

  1. Click the Tests tab.

  2. Expand item 2, Customer Account Tests.
