UFT (QTP) Review

I was able to reduce regression and functional test times by 80%, but creating a framework that can be reused across other tests is complex and time consuming.


Valuable Features

It allows me to perform all in one place--

  • Regression tests (tests which check that the existing functionality of an application still works as it should after other parts of the application have been modified),
  • Functional tests (to verify a specific action or function of code), and
  • Service testing (automated testing protocol)

Improvements to My Organization

I was able to reduce regression and functional test times by 80%.

Room for Improvement

It could be improved with greater browser compatibility and more frequent updates.

Also, running a simple test is straightforward, but creating a framework that can be reused across other tests is complex and time consuming.

Use of Solution

I've used it for three to four years.

Deployment Issues

I didn't encounter any issues with deployment.

Stability Issues

When debugging code in UFT, it would crash, freeze and hang a lot.

Scalability Issues

We had no issues with scalability.

Customer Service and Technical Support

Customer Service:

6/10

Technical Support:

8/10

Previous Solutions

We previously used Selenium Webdriver.

Implementation Team

We implemented it with our in-house team.

Pricing, Setup Cost and Licensing

HP UFT cost a lot and there are other free tools that can do the same and much more.

Other Solutions Considered

I joined the company after the decision was made to use HP UFT.

Other Advice

If cost is not an issue, then UFT can be considered. There are other tools on the market that can do the same for less.
