As stated in previous post – Textbox, Button, Image, Checkbox, Dropdown, Hyperlink, etc. – everything which is visible in an application is known as “Object”. Automation is all about identifying these “Objects” in the application and the subsequent “Actions” to-be-performed on it. But the question is – How do you identify different ‘Objects’ in the application via HP UFT?
As you all might know – HP UFT is a commercial (licensed) tool. There are two main types of UFT licenses – Seat and Concurrent.
UFT supports automation for wide range of development environment like Windows (.Net, Java), Web, SAP, Oracle, etc. And this is made possible by the corresponding UFT Add-ins you install. Its like knowing the requirements prior to the start of testing 🙂 Yeah! UFT add-ins are that important, so pay attention.
Formerly known as HP QuickTest Professional (QTP), Unified Functional Testing (UFT) provides functional and regression test automation. It uses the Visual Basic Scripting Edition (VBScript) as its scripting language. UFT automates testing through an intuitive, visual user experience that ties manual, automated, and framework-based testing together in one IDE.
Software Testing? Can’t you change your technology? Development is much better…A B.Sc. pass can also do Testing, do something good with your engineering degree…Testing is no more a skill set…Anyone can do that…It’s boring…At least learn Automation for survival…There is no career in Software Testing!
Nothing in this world comes for free, except the trial version. Though UFT is commercial, it does not stop us from Learning the basics of automation.
How many times have we come across the same set of test cases that we need to execute again and again every test cycle? My answer would be – Every now and then. And HP’s answer to this question would be – Never, since we have UFT for Test Automation! Test Automation is a process of reducing human effort. It is a way to play-back the pre-defined set of actions and perform validations.
