What Is Included in the Functional Testing of Oracle?

Functional testing is an integral element of the process of verifying that the behavior of a system coordinates with the originally stated functional requirements. 

Usually, Oracle functional testing is based on the functions performed by the system and can be performed at levels of testing: integration, component, system, acceptance. These functions are generally included in the requirements, functional specifications, or in the form of system use cases (use cases). 

The end goal of the Oracle functional testing is to confirm that the system is implemented following the functional requirements of the business and is entirely operational.

Three phases of Oracle functional testing


During the initial phase, a detailed analysis of the source documents regarding the system is performed, including reference terms, functional and business requirements, as well as a project passport. Moreover, there is also a development and approval of test plans, test cases, the number of iterations, project deadline coordination, and an assessment of possible risks. During this stage, most of the work is performed jointly with the representative of customers.


During the next step, the performance testing of the functionalities is performed manually based on the pre-prepared test scenarios. All the errors found during the functional testing Oracle are recorded in the bug tracking system. If the client company lacks such type of system, the outsourced testing company can:

  • Provide a test management system on its site.

  • Supply the client company with all the required licenses.

  • Use the client organization’s resources.

  • Work only with an office suite.

  • Installing and arranging test processes at the client's business depending on free funds. 


A comprehensive report on the test performed, including the list of detected bugs and recommendations for improving the system, is prepared and agreed upon. If necessary, additional staff training is also arranged. Thanks to the test results, a bug report is developed, including comprehensive descriptions of the errors found and recommendations for their elimination. 

A functional tester who performs the Oracle functional testing is well versed in the usability field, and he will pay special attention to the functionality breakdown, even if everything works without fail in terms of functions. 

Advantages and disadvantages of functional testing:


  • Comprehensive testing helps simulate the actual usage scenario.

  • It helps in saving since the bugs are detected earlier in the software life cycle.


  • Amplified chances of missing logical errors in the program

  • More chances of overtesting.

Aspects of functional testing:

Oracle functional testing from a "requirements perspective" utilizes a system's functional requirements specification as the basis for designing Test Cases. In the meanwhile, it is necessary to create a list of what needs to be tested, prioritize the requirements depending on risks (if such a thing is not already included in the requirements document). Also, depending on the data received, prioritize test cases scenarios (test cases). This approach allows a company to focus and not miss any important functionality while testing.
