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   ...
