Scope of Testing
Validating that the integration and interoperability of various software applications can function and coexist in one environment. No functional or unit level testing is performed on individual software, hardware, or components. Testing ends when all test cases have been executed and the exit criteria are met.
Integration testing is the coexistence of two or more software applications working side by side in one system environment. The applications must not interfere with each others functions.
Interoperability testing is two or more software applications working together in one system environment. The applications are dependent upon one another to function properly.
The objectives of this testing are:
Perform integration and interoperability testing in the combined VERITAS, Oracle, Sun Cluster, Sun ONE and Solaris operating environment.
Run a set of system level test suites on specific configurations of machines.
Validate multiple application availability in a clustered system environment.
Validate Sun's Sun Cluster HA agent for Oracle with two different file management systems, VERITAS Volume Manager and the Solaris Volume Manager software. Validate the interoperability of the Oracle9i RAC software.
Validate the Sun ONE productsSun ONE Directory Server (Sun ONE DS), Sun ONE Application Server (Sun ONE AS), Sun ONE Calender Server (Sun ONE CS), Sun ONE Enterprise Server (Sun ONE ES), and Sun ONE Portal Server (Sun ONE PS), and look for any integration problems.
The integration and interoperability testing of a software stack includes, but is not limited to, the following software building blocks: Solaris, Sun Cluster, Oracle, VERITAS, and the Sun ONE suite of products, which include the Application Server (Sun ONE AS), Calendar Server (Sun ONE CS), Directory Server (Sun ONE DS), Messaging Server (Sun ONE MS), Portal Server (Sun ONE PS), and Enterprise Server (Sun ONE ES).
