What do you think of UFT (QTP)?

In my ten years of hands-on combined experience using QTP (QuickTest Professional), for at least 8 years, and UFT (Unified Functional Testing), for at least 2 years, 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).…

What do you think of UFT (QTP)?

UFT 14.02 resolves issues, reduces "click-itis", shows Micro Focus gets it! The new parent company of UFT, Micro Focus, is showing their user base that they get it. They really get it! Changes in this point release alone remind me of the days when QTP was under Mercury Interactive's vision. Here is a quick dive into many product changes, well beyond what is mentioned in the What’s New section of UFT’s User Guide.   Easier download At times it felt like HP had a hard time getting out of it's own way to get new users to download and try UFT with a 60 day trial license.  Micro Focus has begun to streamline that process. Here is the link to get exactly what you want. No muss, no fuss. https://software.microfocus.com/en-us/download/uft   Yes, it…

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

Prior to using VBScript-based UFT/QTP, I used Mercury Interactive's C-based Winrunner before the product was discontinued.

What other advice do I have?

AngularJS support, Data Generation and New Spy features are great, but creeping “Click-itis” sours user experience. There… more»

What do you think of UFT (QTP)?

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:…

I'm really looking forward to seeing the HPE StormRunner Functional. If it's possible to do it in a good way from the cloud, and you don't have to install it. I've seen that working… more»

What other advice do I have?

I, myself mostly, have experience with the HPE tooling and I haven't been in the position where I could decide what tooling to choose. I'm hired because I have this knowledge but I… more»

What is most valuable?

Its ease-of-use. It doesn’t take long to train staff on it. We use a third-party to develop the scripts for us, and they find it easy to up-skill staff to use UFT.

How has it helped my organization?

We use it mainly for regression and it's very useful for that. We reduce a lot of stats around cost savings in the regression packs that we run.

What needs improvement?

Cost is one area where there is room for improvement. We have to start looking at a leaner team and moving into using the Selenium scripts. We have a lot of areas using Selenium, as well, within the bank. I'm trying to get out of using it, only… more»
