As an Oracle Platinum Partner, we have our Hexaware employees working in Oracle to develop PeopleSoft 9.2 PeopleSoft Test Framework (PTF) test cases. It automates the PeopleSoft testing cycle more from the Functional testing perspective. It helps the testing team to execute more test cases within a short time. The same test cases can be repeatedly executed. These test cases can easily be migrated to other instances of the PeopleSoft applications and allows the users to execute the test cases in the different life cycles with no effort. We have delivered more than 5000 test cases which are going to add value to our customers.
