Question:
Have a prospect that is interested on CA application Test. The Applications that they want to test are build in Oracle Forms. Does CA Application Test support Oracle Forms? 
Answer:
As per Product Management, the newer forms which are actually run from the browser are not html, but a custom Swing UI application which is spun off from the browser using an applet. The older forms created with D2K were pure client-server. In both cases, Selenium would not work. You need some sort of image capture/OCR tool like Eggplant for UI testing. Unfortunately, there is no support in Application Test for the same.
