1.QTP allows even novice testers to be productive in
minutes. You can create a test script by simply pressing a
Record button and using an application to perform a typical
business process. Each step in the business process is
automated documented with a plain-English sentence and
screen shot. Users can easily modify, remove, or rearrange
test steps in the Keyword View.

2.QTP can automatically introduce checkpoints to verify
application properties and functionality, for example to
validate output or check link validity. For each step in
the Keyword View, there is an ActiveScreen showing exactly
how the application under test looked at that step. You can
also add several types of checkpoints for any object to
verify that components behave as expected, simply by
clicking on that object in the ActiveScreen.

3.You can then enter test data into the Data Table, an
integrated spreadsheet with the full functionality of
Excel, to manipulate data sets and create multiple test
iterations, without programming, to expand test case
coverage. Data can be typed in or imported from databases,
spreadsheets, or text files.

4.Advanced testers can view and edit their test scripts in
the Expert View, which reveals the underlying industry-
standard VBScript that QuickTest Professional automatically
generates. Any changes made in the Expert View are
automatically synchronized with the Keyword View.

5.Once a tester has run a script, a TestFusion report
displays all aspects of the test run: a high-level results
overview, an expandable Tree View of the test script
specifying exactly where application failures occurred, the
test data used, application screen shots for every step
that highlight any discrepancies, and detailed explanations
of each checkpoint pass and failure. By combining
TestFusion reports with Mercury Quality Management, you can
share reports across an entire QA and development team.

6.QTP also facilitates the update process. As an
application under test changes, such as when a ?Login?
button is renamed ?Sign In,? you can make one update to the
Shared Object Repository, and the update will propagate to
all scripts that reference this object. You can publish
test scripts to Mercury Quality Management, enabling other
QA team members to reuse your test scripts, eliminating
duplicative work.

7.QuickTest Professional supports functional testing of all
popular environments, including Windows, Web, .Net, Visual
Basic, ActiveX, Java, SAP, Siebel, Oracle, PeopleSoft,
terminal emulators, and Web services.

0 Answers   BirlaSoft,

Hi, I want to retrieve the cell data in the WebTable. For that I have defined a new test object under the browser and have given html tag and text as the test object properties. But while I try to identify it it says 'Object description is not unique'. I tried adding innerhtml, outerhtml, innertext and outertext along with the ordinal identifiers; but no use. What more properties need to be added to identify it? Also I want to enable smart identification for this object but the field is disabled in the object repository for this object alone(In QTP tools->object identification the enable smart identification checkbox is enabled). How do I enable it?
