Testing COE Implementation

Testing

Overview

With multiple customers and users accessing your applications on demand, it is imperative that you make sure that your COE Implementation-tenant application is thoroughly validated for each client whenever COE multiple clients are active at a given time.

A COE Implementation tenant application needs to be able to seamlessly operate across several instances to be scalable, maintainable and reliable. Considering the requirements to be verified for COE Implementation-tenancy, the offering should be customizable for each client and should provide data and configuration level security to avoid any access related issues.

Why is COE Implementation-Tenant Testing Important?

Most COE Implementation-tenant applications support user customization through configuration, the test processes must exercise all of the configurable options. Unit tests, functional tests and acceptance testing must include passes that exercise every possible combination of configurable options to ensure that all work correctly and do not conflict with each other.

If users can upload their own components or resources testing should encompass this to as wide an extent as possible. The tests should ensure that these cannot affect execution of the core application code or raise security issues by exposing data or functionality that should not be available.

In terms of test environment requirements, COE Implementation-tenant applications are generally no different from any other application. The one area that may require additional test environment capacity is to provide separate resources, such as databases, to represent COE Implementation tenant resources during testing.

One of the major concerns for administrators and operators who manage the application is to ensure that it is available at all times. It is very difficult to estimate the workload for a COE Implementation-tenant application because the tenants are unlikely to provide detailed estimates of usage, and the peaks can occur at various times if users are located in many different time zones.
