What is most valuable?

It allows us to test both desktop and web applications. This is a very important feature for system integration tests, as we develop desktop applications, web applications, and a Web API using the same database.

What needs improvement?

TestComplete Executor is a small tool for just running the TestComplete test framework (not for developing).

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. This was because sometimes the Windows PC feeding the scanner script data... more»

What is most valuable?

I like the cross browser compatibility. It saves a lot of time re-writing scripts to accommodate different browsers.

How has it helped my organization?

We are consultants. So we simply provide an automated solution to a client, then move on. We don’t use the product in our day to day work.

What needs improvement?

The way objects are added and used when utilizing descriptive programming could be improved. It is a little unwieldy, compared to UFT. In UFT, using descriptive programming for a web page you can use.... more»

TestComplete replaced QTP as the preferred choice of tool for the organization. It is much faster, works better across technologies (esp. Flex based UI) and is better compatible with newer technologies directly out of the box. We could have... more»

What needs improvement?

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 like Notepad++. Performance is another aspect which can be improved.
