Automation using QuickTest Pro

QTP has a lot of features which looks nice at first but are not cost effective to use in the long run. I have created a framework with custom functions instead which is handy to work with. Here are the main features:

  • Custom reporting. Write the results to xls using ADO and use QTP report for detailed logging only. The results are presented at our Intranet in real-time. In case of test case failure, an e-mail is sent with a screenshot of the AUT.
  • DP instead of OR. Quicker to work with and easy maintainance.
  • Functions instead of Actions. Quicker to work with and easy maintainance.
  • Test cases in custom xls using ADO instead of the DataSheet.

More about this later on...
