Micro Focus UFT One Review

It's easy to use so the QA team is not required to have much programming skills.

What is most valuable?

  • Object repository
  • Supported keywords
  • API testing

How has it helped my organization?

UFT is easy to use so the QA team is not required to have much programming skills. VBScript language is also an advantage that it has.

What needs improvement?

I think that UFT should support more robust keywords to work with a low number of applications under test.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using it for two years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It often crashes.

How are customer service and technical support?

6/10 - I posted questions on the HP forum and mostly received no feedback. I also saw that people post questions and help each other.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I used Mercury QuickTest Pro 8.2 for three years. I still use IBM Rational Robot, TestComplete, and some frameworks based on Selenium WebDriver.

How was the initial setup?

Everything is readable and easy to understand.

What about the implementation team?

We did it in-house.

What other advice do I have?

Open-source automated testing engines are also good.

Which version of this solution are you currently using?

Nhien, you mentioned that besides UFT that you use several other automation test tools. How do you decide on which specific tool you are going to use when developing an automated test for a specific application or project? For example, what factors would determine whether to use Selenium over UFT or vice vera?

Hi Don Ingeron,
I used to develop hybrid automated testing framework using Selenium 2 (Webdriver). I did not mention that UFT is bad. However, for companies those have good resource, I think they should build them own testing framework for scale-ability and flexibility.
From my heart, UFT supports so good on object repository, and other testing type such as API testing, UI testing... But for those aspects, I do believe our developers are able to cover.
That is just my humble opinion. It's not right or wrong. :)
