Enables you to insert all the various elements into the repository and then run your tests

What is our primary use case?

I'm a Test Tool Expert and we're customers of Eggplant Functional and have a good relationship with them. We were the first company in Switzerland to use them. We automate regression tests and there are eight people in the company currently using the product - some are testers and some developers. On a given day there would two or three people using the product, others might use it once a week or once a month.

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable features would be the image recognition and the OCR."
  • "In terms of additional features, it would be helpful to have one package for all testing. You have the manager, the AI, then you have functional, and about 10 different packages for installing."

What other advice do I have?

The product isn't pre-installed. We use xCloud. It really is a very good product, very cool. I would rate the product a nine out of 10.

A solution that offers good scripting and OCR, but lacks good reporting functionality

Pros and Cons

  • "The solution is based on a Windows model, where adding users is just a few clicks. It is easy to manage users and add them."
  • "The reporting function is a bit shallow. The solution does not offer very comprehensive reporting in terms of your test results. The reporting time and the logs are very high level as well. These areas need improvement."

What other advice do I have?

Implementation depends on a lot of factors, but you do need a team that has technical knowledge of the tool. There's a lot of configuration involved when you set up the solution. I would rate the solution seven out of ten. I am not a fan because of the reporting functionality and the difficulty in configuring the solution.

Nice code generation from flow charts, but the user interface and VPN setup need improvement

What is our primary use case?

We evaluated this solution and began writing code, but we are not comfortable coding in Eggplant so we are not buying it. We are definitely moving to an open-source solution.

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable feature is the ability to create code from a flow chart, and then run the code through it."
  • "We found that we had issues regarding the VPN setup, which is one of the reasons that we did not purchase this solution."

What other advice do I have?

I would rate this solution a five out of ten.
