UFT (QTP) Review

Bulk-object capture automatically builds data tables in order.

Valuable Features

  • Object recognition
  • Bulk-object capture: automatically builds data tables in order
  • VBScript & C# & Java
  • Industry- and market-leading functional test tool

Improvements to My Organization

It has reduced time-to-market regression from 160+ hours to 12 hours.

Room for Improvement

I’d like to see them improve the number of objects recognized without customization, similar to TestComplete by SmartBear. Simply put: It would save test development time, which would reduce time-to-market.

Use of Solution

I have used it for eight years.

Deployment Issues

I did not encounter any deployment issues.

Stability Issues

I did not encounter any stability issues.

Scalability Issues

I did not encounter any scalability issues when it was properly integrated with remote execution controls.

Customer Service and Technical Support

Customer Service:

I rate customer service 9/10.

Technical Support:

I rate technical support 9/10.

Previous Solutions

We previously used WinRunner and switched due to ease of implementation.

Initial Setup

Setup was easy and straightforward.

Implementation Team

An in-house team implemented it.

Pricing, Setup Cost and Licensing

Have a look at the HP UFT pricing model; it’s changed.

Other Solutions Considered

We also evaluated Smart Bear’s TestComplete.

Other Advice

It is a great alternative, and has outstanding object recognition & functionality.

License cost, ease of implementation, expandability, extensibility, reusability, availability of useful code and knowledge are some of the reasons to consider switching.

Disclosure: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

I agree with this improvement. Another issue with my AUT is that there is no coding standard and about 15 developers doing there own thing and not always providing good object properties to even capture. So, a bigger issue for me for this review.

I noticed that you stated that you also evaluated TestComplete. What was the determining factor for your company to choose UFT over TestComplete?
