PeopleSoft Test Framework automates functional testing, which enables testers to execute more tests with greater accuracy during a shorter time. PeopleSoft Test Framework works by replicating the actions of a single user executing functional tests against the PeopleSoft browser-based application. Users can record manual test procedures and save them within the framework. Later, for instance after an application upgrade or patch, the tests can be executed against the application to verify whether the application still behaves as expected

In this intensive hands-on course students install and configure PeopleSoft Test Framework. Students record, develop, and troubleshoot a number of PeopleSoft Test Framework tests. Participants learn how to administer PeopleSoft Test Framework, and learn how to efficiently manage the process of maintaining tests from one release to another. Students finish the course by creating a series of tests to test a business process from end to end

Thinking about Onsite?

If you need training for 3 or more people, you should ask us about onsite training. Putting aside the obvious location benefit, content can be customised to better meet your business objectives and more can be covered than in a public classroom. It's a cost effective option.

Submit an enquiry from any page on this site, and let us know you are interested in the requirements box, or simply mention it when we contact you.
