It is with your love and motivation, the site is still going strong and visited by several thousands UFT beginners to UFT advanced users every day. Since the time of launch of this site, several things have changed in the QTP world.
We will start from scratch and slowly build towards advanced topics. These UFT tutorials will be structured in such a manner that even an absolute beginner to automated software testing would be able to follow them.
The tutorials will be at your own pace, there would be no pressure. You can book mark the link and come back to them whenever you feel like learning. Before we dive into UFT, let us get go through a primer on software testing and how and when we automate software testing. What is Software Testing? Software testing also validates and verifies the program to check if the business and technical requirements are met, and is working as expected.
Testers ensure that software, hardware, documentation, and personnel comply together through relying on review or non-executable methods. In validation, testers physically ensure that the system has met all business and user requirements, and that the features and functionalities are working as designed. Validation is done by executing system functions through a series of tests which can be observed and evaluated by testers. In software testing, the primary purpose is to find defects. Finding defects in testing early in Software Development will reduce or avoid the risk of failure, maintenance cost, the cost of defect fixing, and delivering better program for the user.
Example: Docket Number should accept 12 numeric characters. Another reason is to produce Quality program. Software quality varies from program to program as they have their own functionality and usability.
What is Automated Software Testing? Automated software testing involves automating manual process through writing test scripts that would do the testing and can be run repeatedly. Test automation is used to control the execution of tests, compare the actual and expected results, the setting up of preconditions, and other test control and test reporting functions through the use of software. When to Automate Software Testing?
A common belief we see among testing professionals is that automation, by some magic, will increase the quality of testing. There is a time and place for everything. Although, this is an automated testing website, one would think we would denounce manual testing.
It is not the case, however. Manual and automated testing go hand-in-hand and should be complimenting each other. We ask our trainees and readers to make sure to automate a test only when it is really needed. However it comes with few caveats. You need to weigh the costs of setting up automated tests vis-a-vis manual testing efforts. Here costs include the complexity of automation, time required to build and maintain automation scripts and of course time and money required to train testers on a given tool.
Multiple Data Vales: You need to run same set of actions for several data values. Manually infeasible tests: Your application is needed to be stress tested for a million hits in a matter of few hours.
Same tests different browsers or OS: You would want your web application to look good on all commonly used browsers and operating systems. If you have a test suite containing 50 test cases which need to be tested with 20 different sets of values on 3 different sets of browsers and 2 Operating systems. It makes sense to automate such test cases. Mobile testing: With tons of mobile handsets available in the market, it would be next to impossible to perform manual testing on all devices.
Companies like Amazon have come up with innovative approaches to this issue, whereby they put actual devices in the cloud and you can test your application on devices with automated scripts.
Again, an ideal candidate for test automation. We trust you like this primer on software testing and understood how we decide to automated software testing for a given scenario. You can refer the complete set of UFT tutorials covered till now using the links below:.
Micro Focus Unified Functional Testing
Description[ edit ] Micro Focus UFT is automated testing software designed for testing various software applications and environments. It performs functional and regression testing through a user interface such as a native GUI or web interface. HPE Unified Functional Testing uses a VBScript scripting language to specify the test procedure and to manipulate the objects and controls of the application under test. To perform more sophisticated actions, users may need to manipulate the underlying VBScript.
