What do you think of Micro Focus UFT One?

In my 10 plus years of hands-on experience using QTP (QuickTest Professional) and UFT (Unified Functional Testing), I have observed that there has been a lot of confusion among the testing community on what the difference is between the two tools. Therefore, I thought it would be beneficial to clarify what distinguishes UFT from QTP because it is important for the reader to know. QTP is a functional and regression automation tool originally developed and marketed by Mercury Interactive which HP acquired in 2006. In 2012, HP released UFT (Unified Functional Testing) version 11.5, which combined QuickTest Professional and HP Service Test into a single software package along with newly designed IDE (Integrated Development Environment). Before UFT, QTP and Service Test were two separate…

What do you think of Micro Focus UFT One?

Last year I had the honor to attend the Micro Focus ADM Conference in Dallas, Texas. Participating with other users in a round table discussion, we spoke of what we loved most, and least, about the UFT automation tool feature set. The results of this meeting can be seen in UFT 14.51. Micro Focus continues to show they are listening to their user base. They are committed to making changes large and small that makes UFT more user-friendly and efficient. Here is a quick dive into product changes, some undocumented, in 14.51. Parallel Test Execution adds isolated execution With a ParallelRunner utility, scripts can be executed on up to four different browsers simultaneously.

What is most valuable?

I'm just managing the team, so I can only explain my experience via the experiences that I've heard from our team members. One of the aspects that the team really liked was the fact that you can also use the business process testing. If you… more»

What needs improvement?

The problem with the solution is that you need to have highly specialized skills in order to make the scripts. Also, the scripts that you're developing for less scripted scenarios should be more productive. The product needs to be… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The licensing costs are quite high. The more you do automation, the more you spend on the license cost. Due to that, sometimes when there is a boom in spending, you will need to justify the extra cost.

What other advice do I have?

I just use the product as an independent contractor and customer. I don't have a professional relationship with Micro Focus. I can recommend the product. If you're a company that is working with any legacy systems, and you need automation… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We're curious to learn more about Tosca. I've heard also from others that Eggplant is quite good. I've wanted to know more about them for my own research and have been looking at them.

What is most valuable?

One of the most valuable features is the analysis using artificial intelligence. This product is easy to use, understand, and maintain. We have the ability to develop automatically for different countries when using continuous deployment… more»

What needs improvement?

One of the drawbacks is that mobile performance testing is in need of improvement. I have had problems with the parameterization chaining. Given that there is a lot of competition in the market from similar tools, the price should be… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

This solution is quite costly and there is no free trial available. We purchased it from SAP because we got a cheaper price. The subscription fees are paid annually.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I have also used Selenium and I find that Micro Focus is better. It is easier, for example, to develop automation. Also, Micro Focus is easier to maintain than Selenium.

What other advice do I have?

My advice to anybody who is considering this product is that it integrates well into your environment, is easy to use, easy to maintain, and makes your development efforts more efficient. The entire development chain, including smoke tests… more»

What is most valuable?

The function library has made automation a much easier process since we do not use record and playback. Our scripts create data and then manipulate the data that has been created.

How has it helped my organization?

UFT has improved our ability to regression test. This frees up the test team to work on only the new portions of the software without having to worry that we are introducing new errors in other areas without knowing it.

What needs improvement?

It could work with more browsers other than Internet Explorer, and could better handle new things like Ext JS.

What do you think of Micro Focus UFT One?

What is our primary use case?

Realizing more test automation scenarios and managing the entire DevOps lifecycle. Running test cases along the entire day.

How has it helped my organization?

The approach to the automation test makes the test activities more interesting and improves the software quality.

What is most valuable?

The ability to base the test automation on object recognition with the possibility of managing the object repository is the most valuable feature. 

What needs improvement?

In my opinion, the improvement of the object recognition of new technologies and the capacity to catch more performance info should be desirable.

For how long have I used the solution?

More than five years.
