Over 279,075 professionals have used IT Central Station research.
Compare the best Regression Testing Tools vendors based on product reviews, ratings, and comparisons.
All reviews and ratings are from real users, validated by our triple authentication process.
The total ranking of a product, represented by the bar length, is based on a weighted aggregate score.
The score is calculated as follows: The product with the highest count in each area gets the highest available score.
(20 points for Reviews; 16 points for Views, Comparisons, and Followers.)
Every other product gets assigned points based on its total in proportion to the #1 product in
that area. For example, if a product has 80% of the number of reviews compared to the product
with the most reviews then the product's score for reviews would be 20% (weighting factor) *
80% = 16. For Average Rating, the maximum score is 32 points awarded linearly based on our
rating scale of 1-10. If a product has fewer than ten reviews, the point contribution
for Average Rating is reduced (one-third reduction in points for products with 5-9 reviews;
two-thirds reduction for products with fewer than five reviews). Reviews that are more than 24 months old,
as well as those written by resellers, are completely excluded from the ranking algorithm.

What do you think of UFT (QTP)?
In my ten years of hands-on combined experience using QTP (QuickTest Professional), for at least 8 years, and UFT (Unified Functional Testing), for at least 2 years, I have observed that there has been a lot of confusion among the testing community on what the difference is between the two tools. Therefore, I thought it would be beneficial to clarify what distinguishes UFT from QTP because it is important for the reader to know.
QTP is a functional and regression automation tool originally developed and marketed by Mercury Interactive which HP acquired in 2006. In 2012, HP released UFT (Unified Functional Testing) version 11.5, which combined QuickTest Professional and HP Service Test into a single software package along with newly designed IDE (Integrated Development...

What do you think of UFT (QTP)?
UFT 14.02 resolves issues, reduces "click-itis", shows Micro Focus gets it!
The new parent company of UFT, Micro Focus, is showing their user base that they get it.
They really get it! Changes in this point release alone remind me of the days when QTP was under Mercury Interactive's vision.
Here is a quick dive into many product changes, well beyond what is mentioned in the What’s New section of UFT’s User Guide.
At times it felt like HP had a hard time getting out of it's own way to get new users to download and try UFT with a 60 day trial license. Micro Focus has begun to streamline that process. Here is the link to get exactly what you want. No muss, no fuss.
VBScript is easier to learn than Java. There are many new and old features in UFT 14.01 which are valuable. In UFT 14.01, new support has been added for AngularJS 2.0 and 4.0. While most of the AngularJS objects were recognized out-of-the-box... more»
Our current project features more than a 1000 manual test cases, which took several days and resources to execute. Now, the suite executes in six hours and less than two when run on multiple machines. With Jenkins connected, or the new... more»
It is important to note here that another Micro Focus product, ALM (aka Quality Center and Test Director), has long suffered from “click-itis” since its release. Nearly every dropdown is collapsed by default. Two option choices are... more»
SOAtest is, at its base, a collection of tools that can be combined to generate test scenarios. Input data can be gathered from any possible source from web GUIs, databases, Excel, and files and is used in SOAP/REST tools and web browser... more»
Our tests are run nightly on every environment using Jenkins CI. We moved from the Waterfall/V-model to Agile a couple of years back. With SOAtest, we are able to test features in every sprint, quickly and efficiently. We use SOAtest to test... more»
Sadly, almost everything needs improving. Don’t get me wrong, the tool is very powerful and immensely useful for day-to-day usage. But certain things are missing or are set up in a way that makes it unnecessarily complicated. Here are some... more»
The most valuable feature for me is that it works on multiple platforms and technologies. I need that because we have an application based on Oracle Forms and Oracle DB, and I'm not aware of any other tool that would provide the same level of... more»
Since I started, we invested in UFT and automation and we have significantly reduced our release cycle time. That has freed up the people who were doing manual regression testing to do more valuable work. The net result is that our cycle time... more»
One thing that confused me, and now just mildly irritates me, is that we migrated from QuickTest Pro to HP UFT, Unified Functional Test. After we did the migration, it turned out that we didn't really have Unified Functional Test at all. We... more»
The solution is in the top list for automatic functional testing. It enables you to test a lot of infrastructure, a lot of applications: web, not web, with the different protocols, and so on. HP UFT can do GUI testing (Graphical User... more»
We use it to automate our integration testing. This lowers our total cost because tests are done automatically rather than manually by people. This saves time. With automatic tests, we can run different types of tests simultaneously. This is... more»
There a lot of things that can be improved: * Support for other environments and other infrastructures. * I hoped that it would also be useful for the internet of things and big data. At this moment, it is not useful at all for big data. I... more»
We do a lot of web services testing and REST services testing. That is the focus of this product. It has also enabled easy automation and concentration. Working with the Parasoft team was very easy for us. They helped us get some of the... more»
It enabled an easy integration of our adjacent platform that was for full automation. We did reach over 97% automation with the use of this tool. It was extremely lightweight. The only unfortunate part is that as the organization no longer... more»
The feedback that we received from the DevOps of our organization was that the tool was a little heavy from the transformation perspective. However, Parasoft seems to be working on a solution to make the tool slightly lighter. That is one of... more»
It allows us to test both desktop and web applications. This is a very important feature for system integration tests, as we develop desktop applications, web applications, and a Web API using the same database.
It is very hard to read the test log generated by TestComplete Executor if the log file is very big. TestComplete Executor is a small tool for just running the TestComplete test framework (not for developing). In fact, this is an issue regarding how to read the test log in MHT format generated by TestComplete. We know a test log is always generated automatically... more»

It has largely improved our efficiency in QA. So every regression we don’t have to run a lot of repeatable test cases for which the flow didn’t change. However they are important to execute, so automation helps us there. Daily Smoke runs and... more»
* Fast and easy automated tests for UI * Interfaces (SOAP, REST) * Additional database queries * Easy validations on responses (soap, rest, json, sql, Gui) Most valuable for us is the combination of all these items in one solution for us.... more»
It provides us with fast(er) test results, more predictable results and automatic (regression) test runs outside the employee workstations. This tooling made us more agile and more ready for continuous integration. We use the night hours to... more»
In general, its user-friendliness needs a little improvement since there are a few bugs that still remain. It needs to be (possibly) more lightweight and have more validation options. The bulk changes in the test cases are not always easy.... more»
* SoapUI/ReadyAPI integration * Selenium integration * We run all of tests using TestExecute, this is just the executer for all TestComplete tests – command line version so can be integrated with any CI tools * We used to these tests... more»
We did a POC for number of tools in past and eventually decided on TestComplete. We started with one tester and one test which we used to trigger manually. As the product matured, it added cross browser, mobile testing functionality,... more»
* Error handling features in the tool are a little limited * The tool currently is Windows only, would like to see it being implemented for Mac and Linux * Once the tests are created in one languages, you can’t change it use other languages
Parasoft SOAtest has improved the quality of our automated web services, which can be easily implemented through service chaining and service virtualization. The best feature to integrate with third party tools is the integrated plug and play... more»
For integration tests, it’s hard to set up component tests due to dependencies. This means you cannot test without using the other components in the loop. The combination of SOATest + Virtualize gives us the opportunity to do this much easier... more»
I would like to see more concrete examples, easy to download studies of very simple Java projects, or TIBCO stuff. Now, I’m sometimes stuck and only finding whitepapers or other reading material, without having concrete examples. Sometimes... more»
* Web-testing facilities. This was not very good when we were using version 9.2, so we built our own Selenium framework and integrated this with SOAtest (this being possible at all is a very positive point in my opinion ;-). * The... more»
For test automation, it helps to speed up the testing and to speed up the software delivery, especially for HPE UFT because you have lots of test automation tools. Also, if I compare HPE UFT with the HPE QTP solution, then HPE UFT is more... more»
I'm really looking forward to seeing the HPE StormRunner Functional. If it's possible to do it in a good way from the cloud, and you don't have to install it. I've seen that working for the HR manager and ALM solutions, so it would be very... more»
The OCR recognition is great, way over Sikulix or Robot Framework. I also like the fact that the integration with IE works great. The KDT implementation seems to be pretty stable and easy to use, out of the box.
* Implementing integration with IntelliJ IDEA, since it's a way better IDE compared to Eclipse, in my opinion. * Implementing a better integration with Git. It was extremely painful to implement the link from Silk Central to Git. I couldn't... more»
That we're able to test both the services, the API level and the GUI, across multiple technologies. At our company, we have everything from mainframe to modern web UI, and UFT allows us to test all of those sites. I like the fact that we can... more»
It helps improve efficiency in regression testing, specifically, and functional testing, in that we automate a lot of repeatable tasks. Not only do we use UFT for automated regression testing, we also use it for doing repeatable tests even... more»
I'd like to see UFT integrated more with some of the open source tools like Selenium, where web is involved. I'd like to see more support for modern scripting languages. I believe they use .Net as their primary, and if we could use something... more»
The regression tests run must faster than if you do it manually. It's assured that the tests are always done the same way. If you run these tests manually, the click behavior might be different or there may be errors during the test. These... more»
I would like to see the integration into HPE ALM Octane. I don't know if this is more on the UFT side or on the Octane side, but as a customer, I don't really care. I just want it to work in a manner in which we could use Octane for the HA... more»
The integration with the third party products. Whether it's the mobile products or others, it is really helpful. Additionally, the HPE mobile solution integration that it provides is really helpful. Open source tools like Selenium and APM... more»
A key benefit, obviously, is in terms of effort savings that we have achieved using UFT. We have used it for different projects across different business units within the enterprise. That's really the key for UFT.

What do you think of Silk Test?
I have known Borland as a company for a long time yet in the past 10
years have not really worked with any of their tools. A short summary of
how they see themselves:
With Silk Test, there’s no need to understand coding so
even non-technical people like your business analysts can build tests
and get fully involved. This 13.5 release also breaks new ground by
working with all the latest browsers, so a single script is all you
Well, there are some issues with that statement of course, cause a
single script is always doomed to fail in the most horrid ways
imaginable, but still, SilkTest is a nice tool to work with.
The reason for looking at SilkTest was because I would like to have a
tool now which is future proof for the...
