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. Execution can be performed from a command prompt:…

What is most valuable?

We're not using the web services testing piece. They should, but I think they're using other open source tools such as Postmaster. But they're using QTP strictly for scripting automation test cases.

How has it helped my organization?

I don't think that Micro Focus UFT One has really improved it much. Until we move over to a framework where they don't have to spend so much time in creating data-driven scripts that become obsolete once a new version of the application… more »

What needs improvement?

In terms of what could be improved, they need to reduce the cost because it is pretty high. It's approximately $3,000 per user and if we're going to spread this throughout the organization, we'll need to spend a whole lot of money. The… more »

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

I've always been familiar with QTP and UFT. The other product that's taken over the marketplace is Selenium because it is open source, free of charge. It is in 90% of all the organizations, whereas QTP I believe has lost the market share.

What other advice do I have?

My advice to anyone regarding this solution is that if they have the money to purchase it, they could, but Selenium would be the first choice because it's more widely used. UFT quite expensive. It's about $3,000 per seat, whereas Selenium… more »

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?

The solution is the company's product of choice. We disagree a bit in that regard. The initial setup is relatively easy.

How has it helped my organization?

I don't really see a way it has improved our organization. I don't like this tool and I don't think that it's a successful example for automation. It's because of the tool's limitations that make the automation of a project difficult to… more »

What needs improvement?

The solution makes test automation really difficult to maintain. The design of the test framework isn't ideal. They should work to improve it. The concept is really old. It needs to be integrated with EMM, due to the fact that, obviously… more »

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

I have never used a different solution. I merely use this solution as it is my company's preferred product.

What other advice do I have?

We're just customers. We don't have any business relationship with Micro Focus. Personally, the solution doesn't meet my expectations. The design is really old. It's possible we'll be talking about changing soon. I'm not sure if it will… more »

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 can develop negative test cases for API calls, which is… more »

How has it helped my organization?

This tool integrates well into our environment. We have the ability to develop automatically for different countries when using continuous deployment. We can use the same scripts, which is a nice… 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… 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… more »

What is most valuable?

It's a fine solution with good out-of-the-box protocols. Right now we're moving to a new way of working so we're going to need to move away from this product.

What needs improvement?

Improvement could be made in the cost of the solution and the support time involved in solving issues. This is something that is quite tricky. I try to get the support on a ticket, but it takes time for it to be managed. This part is always quite tedious and that's in addition to the renewal process… more »

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

The license model is quite complex. We have the normal basic license plus some support costs and other things so it depends on a lot of factors.

What other advice do I have?

I'm not sure this solution is the future with many companies now moving to agility-focused solutions. I have used these products for the past 20 years and they were good and fast but now there are other competitors who are coming out with better solutions. I would rate this solution a six out of 10.

What is most valuable?

The interface is fine and there is nothing else to add in terms of enhancement. It works well for testing multiple end-to-end scenarios.

What needs improvement?

We have had some issues with stability, where it crashes sometimes. In the next release, I would like to be able to see multiple scripts at the same time.

What other advice do I have?

My advice for anybody who is implementing this product is to be aware that it lends itself to having coding knowledge. I would say that you have to be comfortable with coding to use it. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
