Known Issues - Oracle Add-in

This topic describes troubleshooting and limitations for the Oracle Add-in.


  • If you install an Oracle JInitiator 1.1.x version after you install the UFT One Oracle Add-in, you must repair UFT One to test applications running in the newly installed JInitiator version.

    Note: It is not necessary to re-install or otherwise configure the UFT One Oracle Add-in if you installed a new Oracle environment other than JInitiator 1.1.x.

  • If the Java console does not display a line containing text similar to: Loading Oracle Support, check that the settings in your environment correspond to the environment settings defined in this section, or check for a batch file that may override the settings.

  • If your Java console displays the line Could not find –Xrun library: jvmhook.dll, check that you have jvmhook.dll in your system folder (WINNT\system32, Windows\System32, or Windows\SysWOW64, depending on your operating system).

Object identification

Test objects that require the index property for their description (for example, range flexfield objects) cannot be created from the Active Screen.

Workaround: Use the Add Objects button in the Object Repository window to add these test objects directly from your Oracle Applications instead.

  • The Log out of the application when the test closes option in the Record and Run Settings dialog box does not work if the Responsibilities List of Values window is displayed in the Oracle Applications session.

  • Active Screen captures are not supported for OracleListOfValues and OracleNotification test objects.

  • When recording on an Oracle ADF application on Internet Explorer, UFT One recording may experience unexpected behavior or poor performance.
  • When recording in the Oracle E-Business Suite, clicked buttons are not recognized and don't appear in the Active Screen or Object Repository.

    Workaround: Modify the code to include the actual button name: OracleFormWindow.PressToolbarButton "<button_name>"

Running tests on Oracle applications

  • The recovery scenario pop-up window trigger event is not supported when testing Oracle Applications.

  • Simultaneous testing of multiple Oracle Applications sessions is not supported.

  • Performing a checkpoint on an object that is not always visible (such as a list opening from a combo box selection or a menu item) is not fully supported.

    Workaround: If a checkpoint on a transient object is required, make sure the object is visible prior to executing the checkpoint. For example, in the case of combo box list, you should insert a statement that clicks the combo box button before executing the checkpoint.

  • When testing Oracle applications, a table checkpoint may not capture the values of columns that are not visible.

    Workaround: Before creating a table checkpoint, scroll in the table so that the last column is visible.

Oracle E-Business Suite Applications launched using JNLP

  • When running Oracle E-Business Suite applications launched using JNLP, the CloseForm method is not supported for OracleFormWindow test objects.

    Workaround: Use the CloseWindow method instead of CloseForm to close an OracleFormWindow in an Oracle application.

  • Java Web Start for Oracle E-Business Suite 12.1 and 12.2 using JNLP is supported when using JRE 8 Update 121 or later.
