Functional Testing

New products are introduced to the Solaris OE Train for interoperability testing only after functional testing of the individual products is completed by the developers. As the Solaris OE Train moves along, new hardware and software components are introduced into the test process by the various business unit and development groups—Enterprise Server Product Group (ESPG), Work Group Server (WGS), Desktop Products (DT), Network Systems (NWS), Data Center High Performance Group (DHPG), VERITAS, Oracle, Sun ONE, Sun Clusters, and Network Appliance and Security Group ((NAS)–third party products).
