The you REALLY NEED RAT (real application testing) you can capture real-time workloads, duplicate you database, run the test, FLASHBACK the database, make changes and run the workload again.. Don't try to reinvent this wheel - it is far to complicated for you to get it done right in a RAD environment. Received on Mon Mar 30 2009 - 13:06:36 CDT
