ZAPTEST Review
We can write our codes just after the functional docs are prepared, and we can straight away start testing the application in the system testing phase itself.


Valuable Features

  • Using this tool, we can automate test cases even before the deployment of an application. This can be done by scanning objects from UI mock-ups or screenshots.
  • One script multi-run technology reduces scripting effort and budget by which you can run one unique script to test multiple platforms.
  • We can write one code and run it in multiple browsers (Chrome, IE, Firefox anything) and operating systems (Android, Windows, anything).
  • PDF validation, average colour validation, etc. are better and stable.
  • We can literally automate anything (not necessarily web applications) using ZAPTEST as it works exactly as a human eye and doesn't dig into application codes.
  • Partial OCR and block recognization are game changers.
  • JIRA and ALM integration

Improvements to My Organization

Using another script automation tool, our scripter could only start his coding after the deployment of an application. This eliminates scope of system testing by automation. Using ZAPTEST, we can write our codes just after the functional docs are prepared, and we can straight away start testing the application in the system testing phase itself. This eliminates manual effort in testing life-cycle completely and also eliminates a separate automation script development phase and saves a lot of time and money.

Room for Improvement

  • We cannot have more than one Object Repository for one test.
  • Regular expression is not supported.
  • Most of the data table operations are not supported.

Use of Solution

We've used it for two months.

Deployment Issues

It deploys without issues.

Stability Issues

It's stable enough nowadays.

Scalability Issues

We have no scalability issues.

Customer Service and Technical Support

We received technical support directly from highest management, which includes Alex Chernyak and Anton Nosovitsky. 9/10

Previous Solutions

Our organization used HP Quick Test Professional as a test automation tool, and we jumped over to this tool as a POC initiative. ZAPTEST has its advantage over QTP/UFT in the following ways: As we can write codes before deployment, it saves a lot of time and billing hours.

Initial Setup

The initial set-up is not so straightforward, as it does not have similar ease of QTP/UFT utility functions. To make a framework, you need to keep in mind that ZAPTEST does not support descriptive programming or regular expressions in its current version.

Implementation Team

We work as a vendor team. Implementation requires a skilled person who has test automation experience for the initial set-up.

ROI

The ROI ought be high as it saves a lot of time and billing by eliminating a complete phase in the testing life cycle.

Other Advice

Use this product if you have good, skilled workers to prepare the framework. Post implementation, show the guts to say good-bye to manual testers.

Hi Arupratan,

In your valuable features you have mentioned

•We can literally automate anything (not necessarily web applications) using ZAPTEST as it works exactly as a human eye and doesn't dig into application codes.

Does this means we can automate Webservices/APIs too?. If so can you please explain me how we can use.

Also the Improvements to My Org also looks the same for my area of work too, I also start the test scripts only after deployment of the application. If I can start it along with the coding I could save a lot of time.

This is the scenario we have currently in the process of evaluating testing tools for our Organization. We have some SOAP and RESTful APIs. Wanted to know if Ready API be good or ZAPTEST be good.

Thanks in Advance,
Veni KS.
