Cons
Name Mapping feature should be clearer. Whenever I use it, I do not really know what will work and what will not work.Stability issues occurred only when connecting to the SourceSafe. Sometimes, after getting the latest version, the tool hangs and it should be reopened in order to recover.Increased performance with less memory and CPU usage.Error handling features in the tool are a little limited.The code editor, though following eclipse-style, is still a work in progress and gives a very poorly formatted code once viewed via other editing tools.We were testing handheld barcode scanners running WindowsCE with many menus of warehouse functions, and our biggest problem was the timing between input and responses.TestComplete gives support to do requests to a SOAP web service but has no support to do HTTP requests on Restful services.Product is not stable enough and it crashes often.

Classes are not as object-oriented as I would like, but I am a programmer and not QA so I expect a lot.

Pricing and Cost Advice
The license price for a physical machine is cheap, and for virtual machine, it is very expensive.Our ROI is about $10,000 a year.TestComplete now have come up with three modules (Web, Desktop & Mobile), so based on the type of product for automation, it is adequate to purchase the required module.Buy modules on demand. If you have a four-person team and they will each automate tests only 25% of the time, it's better to buy a floating licence and share the tool during the work day.The price is less, compared to other products, such as QTP.My advice so far, is that while it’s not quite as powerful and easy to use as UFT, its price tag more than makes up for it.The product is becoming more and more expensive.
