Oracle Forms: Design a scenario with iterations

This tutorial describes how to design a Virtual User executing iterations on Oracle Forms requests. It presents an actual case using NeoLoad on an Oracle Forms demo application. It describes in detail how to create a Virtual User that repeats a same business transaction several times over.

To gain the most from this tutorial, it is recommended to read Oracle Forms applications testing.

Understand the context

With NeoLoad, designing a scenario for an Oracle Forms application is very quick. Where the Oracle Forms application usage requires that a dynamic element be added, NeoLoad allows you to use logical actions, in particular the inclusion of a loop in the Virtual User design.

With an Oracle Forms application, it is vital to take this requirement into account in the initial phases of the scenario design. The following sections list the best practices to be observed, using iOrganizer, a demo application for the Oracle Forms 10g server.
