Most Helpful Review
It has the ability to take a snapshot of a form, and the controls on that page are dynamically recognized.
We are able to now automate tests, which so far have been manual.
GUI testing is the strength of the tool. The tool works as expected, and the support response from eggPlant, as a company, has been quick and substantial.
It provides very strong cross-platform support.
The most valuable feature of AscentialTest for us is that it fully supports PowerBuilder.
A step forward would be to have event support, because it is more or less linear at the moment.
It has low productivity.
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
It is scalable, but it is a matter of money in the pocket. You can scale it, but then you have to have additional licenses. The licensing approach of eggPlant is not the best.

This “next generation” testing solution allows users to build robust automated and manual tests from reusable components created by its powerful object recognition engine without recording or scripting. Our patented ‘snapshot’ technology generates graphical representations of the application under test which allows users to build ‘Steps’ by dragging and dropping objects in a visual test editor. Reusable Steps are combined to form a multitude of automated and manual tests that are easy to create and maintain. With AscentialTest, companies realize a dramatic reduction in test creation and maintenance times, resulting in increased productivity and lower costs.|
