At Ellebaek Consulting we apply professional, innovative and high quality IT services related to Agile principles for Oracle-based projects.
Automated Testing of Oracle Code
A key Agile principe is automated unit testing and we apply this to Oracle code using Quest Code Tester for Oracle,
arguably the best tool available for the job. We believe that automated testing of Oracle code needs focus for numerous reasons, including cost reduction, improved software quality and productivity and also improved protection against hacking.
Ellebaek Consulting provides extensions to this tool where it lacks functionality.
We have a close collaboration with the renowned PL/SQL guru Steven Feuerstein, Quest Software, who is the architect behind and one of the key developers of
Quest Code Tester for Oracle.
