IBM Rational Functional Tester is good for automating thick applications.

IBM Rational Functional Tester

  • An execution log in html format provides detailed information of the actions, verifications, and screenshots with timestamps.
  • Quick response and good support. IBM releases frequent updates to handle customer needs and fix issues.
  • A solid object inspector, extensive functional library and playback monitor.

IBM Rational Functional Tester

  • Installation or updates were not always perfect. Would have to clean previous installations or reinstall Java if there were errors.
  • No or very limited support of browsers outside of Internet Explorer.
  • Uses a lot of memory, can have memory issues on large tests.

Alternatives Considered

IBM Rational Functional Tester

Selenium is similar to IBM Rational Functional Tester but is not as user friendly and does not support thick applications. Visual Studio Coded UI is newer so not as refined; the object inspector/management and execution log results is poor compared to IBM Rational Functional Tester.

  • Speeds up and broadens the testing cycle by using machine time for regression testing.
