Oracle has agreed to acquire a set of Web application testing products from Empirix for an undisclosed sum.
Oracle plans to make Empirix's e-TEST suite "a core component" of its Enterprise Manager product. The company also makes testing products for Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) and IP multimedia subsystems (IMS).
"The acquisition of e-TEST suite is expected to strengthen Oracle Enterprise Manager with application load and functional testing technology, and enable Oracle to provide comprehensive application management life cycle solutions," said Leng Leng Tan, vice president of applications and systems management for Oracle, in a prepared letter to customers.
Empirix customers include Bank of America , Barclay’s Bank, Boeing, Merrill Lynch, Microsoft, SAP and Toyota.
In other documents made available on Thursday, Oracle said e-TEST suite is "proven" and being used by more than 685 customers in industries such as financial services, insurance and manufacturing.
E-TEST suite components include e-Manager Enterprise, for developing and organizing test processes; e-Tester, for building test scripts; and e-Load, for load and performance testing of Web applications.
Empirix products are "highly compatible" with Oracle's, and hundreds of its customers have used them successfully, Oracle said.
