What do you think of UFT (QTP)?

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 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…

What is most valuable?

VBScript is easier to learn than Java. There are many new and old features in UFT 14.01 which are valuable. In UFT 14.01, new support has been added for AngularJS 2.0 and… more»

How has it helped my organization?

Our current project features more than a 1000 manual test cases, which took several days and resources to execute. Now, the suite executes in six hours and less than two… more»

What needs improvement?

It is important to note here that another Micro Focus product, ALM (aka Quality Center and Test Director), has long suffered from “click-itis” since its release. Nearly… more»

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

For the price of five automation licenses, you simply would not be able to hire five manual testers for two years worth of 24/7 manual testing work on demand. While many… more»

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 are so many features! The tool is easy to learn… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I only work QTP/UFT engagements, however I do compare functionality of other tools in my spare time, including Selenium, SmartBear TestComplete, and HPE LeanFT.

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:…

What is most valuable?

That we're able to test both the services, the API level and the GUI, across multiple technologies. At our company, we have everything from mainframe to modern web UI, and UFT allows us to test all of those sites. I like the fact that we can use LeanFT with our UFT licenses as well.

How has it helped my organization?

It helps improve efficiency in regression testing, specifically, and functional testing, in that we automate a lot of repeatable tasks. Not only do we use UFT for automated regression testing, we also use it for doing repeatable tests even for the business, in test environments and in the higher… more»

What needs improvement?

I'd like to see UFT integrated more with some of the open source tools like Selenium, where web is involved. I'd like to see more support for modern scripting languages. I believe they use .Net as their primary, and if we could use something like Java Script or Groovy, in addition, that would be… more»

What other advice do I have?

When selecting a vendor to work with the most important criteria would be somebody that's going to be there for the long haul. Somebody who's dependable. Somebody who has active support and supports the latest technology. As we modernize it, the technology stays fresh. If you have legacy tools like… more»

What is most valuable?

Being able to automate different applications makes day-to-day activities a lot easier. We have a lot of repeatable tasks which we perform over at the hotel, rolling dates for different applications mainly. We do monthly swap testing or regression testing for every month's window batches and so on… more»

How has it helped my organization?

It's definitely cut down on a lot of time by using this application. We have about ten environments; ten times in every environment manually would've taken most of the day, rather than doing it simultaneously. It saves me hours.

What needs improvement?

Perhaps more coverage as far as different languages go. I'm talking more about object identification. So, if there's more coverage for different languages to detect in development, then that'd be a lot more helpful. Specifically this application which we use is Delphi-oriented, but I had a hard time… more»

What other advice do I have?

To someone researching UFT: It's a very good tool. It hits other applications versus just web apps, which is one of the main things. I think that is why our company purchased it in the first place. Most important criteria when selecting a vendor: What they're currently doing, then what their outlook… more»

What is most valuable?

* Record and Replay to ease onboarding of new users. * Object Repository Technology, which is a good mean to identify graphical components of the applications under test.

How has it helped my organization?

With frequent releases, using automation to perform regression testing can save us huge amount of time and resources. It has allowed us to focus on newly added features.

What needs improvement?

Initially, it was supporting only Internet Explorer. This was not an issue, as the corporate choice, was to use that browser. In the meantime, Firefox and Google Chrome became popular and were introduced within the company, hence scripting became more complex from a maintenance standpoint to support… more»

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

This was long time ago, with version 8.2. It was automation of a pack of regression set with QTP. It was a success because my customer split regression testing and functional testing. Therefore, I could focus on the part which was identical across versions, then maintain the scripts after new… more»

What do you think of UFT (QTP)?

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.
