About Robot Support for Oracle Forms Applications
Rational Robot provides comprehensive support for testing 32-bit applications built
with Oracle Forms 4.5, 5.0, and 6.0. Robot supports the testing of applications that
you migrate from one Oracle Forms version to another, and allows for the reuse of
scripts between Windows NT 4.0, Windows 2000, Windows 98, and Windows 95.
With its Object Testing technology, Robot examines data and properties that are not
visible to the user. Robot uses Object-Oriented Recording to recognize an Oracle
Forms object by its internal name.
You can use Robot to test Oracle Forms objects, including:
Windows
Forms
Canvas-views
Oracle Trees (Tree-views)
Base-table blocks (single- and multi-record)
Items, including OLE containers
