UFT (QTP) Valuable Features

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 4.0. While most of the AngularJS objects were recognized out-of-the-box in UFT 12, 14.01 now also recognizes grid objects, such as Web tables. Hidden among the kitchen sink of features is a new Data Generation tool called the Test Combinations Generator. * Need 10 to 100 random city names? * A range of random dates? * What about a list of first and last names? Random numbers, emails and passwords? Even IP and MAC addresses? * Need a list of random part numbers in a custom format? The Regular Expression data generator will fill your need. This data can be exported to internal Excel data worksheets that give upfront visual access to data for starting data driven projects. The UFT has multiple approaches for object identification including: * Object Repository * Descriptive programming * Object collections * Relational recognition (Below or right of another object) * Insight objects (Image recognition) * Virtual objects Ensures you can find objects by the DOM, CSS and XPath, but descriptive programming is often easier to read. Connections to MS Excel and popular databases allow users to move to the advanced frameworks of data acquisition with SQL queries. The fully-redesigned Run Results module is simply beautiful. Someone tried to compliment me on rolling my own results page, and I admitted what they were looking at was completely out-of-the-box. Let’s not forget being able to make external calls to supporting tools, like AutoIt, as well as the Windows API, to provide expanded functionality. Lastly, support of version control in both the stand-alone tool and the ALM repository. View full review »

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.

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. That's mainly what we use it for. View full review »
