Cost aside, does RFT (Rational Functional Tester) have any advantages over the other tools in the market say Selenium or Watir/Watin...etc?
I'm in a small team and we are evaluating choosing other tools, and RFT is also in our list. Keeping the cost involved aside, technically how does RFT compete with other tools. The requirements for a tool (at least in our team) is robust, strong framework, works with IE and office components, DB interaction and ease to learn.
Need not have any integration with any test management tool.
Those who might have worked in RFT and other tools can pitch in to help.
