I have worked on both, and used QTP extensively before. It works best for teams that have one or two engineers who can create and maintain the test suites, and few more QAs with not so much programming skills can run the tests, and make minor changes. It's record and play (IMO) is better than selenium's. Selenium is open source, so you are saving a lot of ...

Note: Last I worked on QTP was back in 2008. My notes are based on that. The most significant difference felt when I transitioned from QTP to Selenium was the programming / scripting language. QTP only supports(ed) VBScript, hence OO approach to test framework used to be more challenging for me. I still used Page object models. I used to create a text ...

In the HP > QTP > Dat directory there are XML configuration files for each of the plugins loaded into QTP. The .NET file is called SwfConfig.xml. In this file, you can tell QTP how to interact with the control types it sees. In this case, you can define the following: <Control Type="ControlTypeName" MappedTo="SwfCheckBox"></Control> Note ...

I don't think that QTP 10 supports IE9, it doesn't appear in the PAM. As far as I know support for IE9 was added in QTP11 via some patches.

A link (A tag) does not respect the "disabled" property as per the HTML spec, so if you have a "disabled" link then your developers have done something special to make it that way. Generally a "disabled" link is either not a link at all (text with styles applied to it such as a blue color and underline) or where the default behavior is overridden via ...

QTP does not support parallel runs on different browsers, you can run the same test on different browsers by defining the browser in the data table and then iterate on that.

Tom: This is expected behavior. You cannot dynamically load Recovery Scenarios and use them at runtime. Once it is associated though (manually or programmatically), the next time you run the script, it will be fired.

If you are looking for a spy for SAP GUI in particular, there is a integrated script recorder in SAP GUI. You can access it via "Customize Local Layout (Alt+F12)" > "Script Recording and Playback...". I also remember a SapGuiScriptingSpy.exe which I think came from SAP, but I don't remember where you can get it from.

Yes, selenium is better for web testing. QTP is more expensive, and uses old technologies (VBA), but is better for non-coders and testing desktop applications Now please, please, please close this question before the inevitable argument comes.

Anytime ordinal position values for x,y coordinates or indexes are used in a test script there is a high probability of failure. Not only will the test throw a false positive if the object is moved, but also consider different screen resolutons, and different devices. In general ordinal values for objects is generallly not a good practice in robust test ...

I Googled for "agentlib:jvmhook". The first link (http://www.learnqtp.com/forums/Thread-Could-not-create-Java-virtual-machine) suggests that your problem may be related to having installed QTP.

@Imen: I know below mentioned reporting techniques. And more important is how you want your reports (Line by line/step by step execution report, class/method level report, etc..?).

I hope this helps. http://www.qtpworld.com/index.php?cid=77 The site in general is really good and on the left menu you have all the main blocks of QTP. I do have to say though, there are the versions 11 and 11.50 which have some slight changes... Thanks.

As Far As I Know and I use QTP 11 only. HP still don't provide proper support with WPF Controls. In some Cases I've seen people contacting HP and then getting some specific patch, I have not done it so can't comment on that. What I read and used and understood... If it is WPF and there is a QTP as a tool for automation, be ready to say NO or be ready for ...

First of all, you will need the QTP Java Add in to automate Java applications. Next, look into the QTP tutorials right here, they are interacting with the Flight application that is delivered with the QTP installation. The tutorial will give you a basic understanding of QTP, but skip the VBScript lessons on this site there are better ones. W3Schools is not ...

Actually not. Microsoft Test Manager is a simple T. management tool which allows you to run a Test case and report a bug into TFS, built on the top of Visual studio. It would be probably possible to plug it in, but usually there is nothing like this. There are several test frameworks and automated test tools build on the top of visual studio as Ranorex, so ...

Insight objects can contain the image either internally (when created during record or learn) or by supplying an image (this is probably what you're looking for). When supplying an image you need to put in in the test object's ImgSrc property, this can done either by using descriptive programming thus: InsightObject("ImgSrc:=C:\pictureOfImageA.jpg").Click ...

I think you already got two rather lengthy answers. Do we still use TestNG when you develop framework using QTP ? Someone who has exposure to both QTP and Selenium Can clarify my question Similar to Page object Pattern what is best practice that QTP suggests for automation I have had experience in designing tool agnostic Automation Test ...

I found a partial solution to your problem. You can change the Key Bindings with Tools>Options>Key Bindings. Unfortunately, you cannot use the Backspace as new shortcut key, because the interface thinks you want to delete the previous character (try it if you want, I wasn't able to do this in QTP 10). So we have to work around this: Close QTP Go to the ...
