RAM’s answer below is very detailed. The reason SAP automation is sonchallenging is the element descriptions in the DOM are all in German. This is the reason the jobs make little sense. VA1 is initials for Vert - Sales in German.

Thanks Don! You make an excellent point! While I personally have not printed code for several years, it is something missing compared to other IDEs. Both Eclipse and IntelliJ have a Print Code functionality. Eclipse has a basic print from a the active window.…

I’ll have to ask my community. I have had just passing experience with PortSwaggler and I know OWASP has a list of website security best dev practices to avoid Xsite scripting and other vulnerabilities. MicroFocus just did a demo with me on their product Fortify. It runs…

I have been working with ALM clients on and off for several years back to when it was Mercury's Test Director. While it has improved significantly, I'm disappointed that HP chose to reinvent with Octane rather than inprove the existing product. If they could just get…

Reading what Rene wrote: I agree with him. And he knows BluePrint integration better than me. Follow his advice.

Just to be clear HP QC (Quality Center) is the old name for HP ALM/ALM Octane. And I know BluePrint has at least one former HP employee. So I think getting integration between those two tools should be possible. It's possible you already have what you need in QC, but not…

This is the first I have heard of Digite Swift ALM. I work with HP ALM for and I know others work with HP ALM Octane. I would suggest you add a list of your disconnected tools. That way you can know for sure of integration, otherwise it's difficult to give an accurate…

Hi Anshika! First I agree the trial period should be longer - you really need six weeks to get into the tool. Next there is a .Net Add-On with UFT. The important thing to remember is that there are about 15 supported technology Add-ons. Turning on all, or more that you…

Great advice in using a Citrix Server. Another advantage is that with Jenkins in the mix you can check out code changes via a tool like Subversion (SVN). You can be sure the latest automation code is always deployed before running tests.

Great review. Particularly about getting training to learn about all the features this tool has, as it is everything and the kitchen sink for automation. Most recently I pulled off a spellcheck requirement with it. I also see the stability issues which are more prevalent…

As one who has installed, configured, customized, administrated, demoed and used ALM/Quality Center/Test Director I have to agree this review is spot on! ALM is customizable to a fault. If you do experience stability issues in ALM, look first to any customizations you…

I did want to post an update. In regard to HP's rule on obtaining patches for their products under the 30-day trial licenses it now can be done without an SAID. These patches are now available for download to anyone with a HP Passport account. There are several entry points…

Don that is a difficult question to answer accurately. Someone who knows Selenium proficiently would probably be able to design a solution in a few hours, probably no more than two working days. With LeanFT in the mix the development of the object identification code for all…

Hire a manual tester for 10k a year, and 1k each year afterword. Not really expensive at all.

Too bad I don't see the date you posted this. When you say QTP does not support FF 3.6 it tells me you don't keep up with the patches or the PAM. The memory allocation issue says the same, but the support guy was amiss to not direct you to the patch. Not sure what the…
