LoadComplete

If we already use TestComplete for test automation and there is an urgent need to perform load testing, then it is easy to start with LoadComplete but the tool itself has to improve a lot and support customization to suit our needs. I would say if load testing is the main criteria to use this tool, then there are other open-source tools like JMeter that can support better than this. Of course, as it is an enterprise tool it has very good reporting and record and playback options that I see as an advantage for basic users.

Micro Focus UFT One

UFT is well suited if the price is not an issue, and if the requirement is about testing different technologies.If the application is based on Legacy platforms like Siebel or Mainframe, UFT fares quite well.For low cost web-based projects, there are other cheap and open source tools available.If it is about API testing or Mobile Testing, it is better to use other tools like TOSCA.

Pros

LoadComplete

  • Able to generate detailed reports.
  • Displays graphs during load testing to show the user (Performance Engineer) where a bottleneck occurred.
  • Ability to run tests in the cloud.
  • Port test scripts from TestComplete.

Micro Focus UFT One

  • The simple front end will allow novice users to easily grasp the basics of automation and give them confidence to try things for themselves.
  • UFT can scale up and run across multiple machines from a single controller, such as ALM, enabling hundreds of tests to be executed overnight.
  • There is an active support community out there, both official HPE based and independent users. This means if you do encounter a problem there is always someone out there to help you.
  • The later versions have many add-ins to plug in to other tools within the QA world.
  • Expert users are able to utilise the many native functions and also build their own to get the most out of the tool and impress people as they walk past and see the magic happening on the screen.
  • UFT also has LeanFT bundled with it, allowing automated testing at the api level - if you can convince the developers to let you in there.

Cons

LoadComplete

  • Rather slow work with logging, especially on long tests. Test logs can occupy a big memory space.
  • Coding is not presented in LoadComplete, we can use only predefined features, so we have some limitations in test development.
Yury Vakhatov | TrustRadius Reviewer

Micro Focus UFT One

  • The biggest disadvantage is that the cost is very high for licensing and maintenance.
  • We cannot run multiple threads/instances like in case of Selenium Grid.
  • Since it supports only VB script, the Object Oriented approach to test automation is challenging.
  • Need to buy different add-ins- Java, Oracle, SAP, .NET, etc.

Customer support is good. If any concerns are raised, they are usually resolved soon, but when questioned about a feature LoadComplete does not support, it usually takes more time to resolve.

HPE are quick to reply and it's possible to get through to the actual developers shuold the case warrent it. Their online system allows updates and tracking of all incedents raised.

Alternatives Considered

LoadComplete

We chose loadcomplete because we already use SmartBear software for other automation solutions. Porting over test cases is easy and a user can have a test up and running within minutes. I do wish SmartBear would have better support and I haven't used any other testing tool in a while to make a comparison.

Micro Focus UFT One

We need to look at open source tools if the team has time to learn like Selenium.Selenium can integrate with just about anything to give you a robust framework such as Maven for source code compilation, Test NG to drive tests, Jenkins or Hudson to integrate into a Continuous Integration and different reports i.e allure reports. So we get lot of features & support using Selenium like in UFT but with Selenium, cost is the biggest advantage as it is a freeware.Only challenge with Selenium is java scripting & most of the testers are not well acquainted with it while UFT supports vb scripting which is easy to learn so learning curve involved is the major drawback with Selenium.Another good automation tool is TestComplete. It is not a freeware but it comes with modular pricing. So you can buy what you need. Just purchase desktop, web, and mobile licenses separately and there is no more need to pay for modules that you don’t use unlike HP UFT which comes with heavy pricing with lot of features, many of them which you don't even use.

Return on Investment

LoadComplete

  • Many built-in features (like auto data correlation, load distributing etc) will save time for development.
Yury Vakhatov | TrustRadius Reviewer

Micro Focus UFT One

  • Reduces the total workload of keeping the team to test older (regression) functionality. QA testers can concentrate on ad-hoc and exploratory testing, saving time and effort across the entire project.
  • Has built a better infrastructure for the client applications on which we can rely on for stability and providing regression results for any new features being developed.
  • Led the applications a step closer to implementing agile practices and DevOps across the entire organization. Thus, providing a better turnaround time of new features to the customers and less maintenance headaches for the BAU team to address.
