NeoLoad

NeoLoad is a very comprehensive tool if you are looking for a performance test tool for web applications and other applications using protocols like REST, SOAP, etc. The concepts are easy to understand and mostly clear. This enables you to develop very fast tests with a very good flexibility regarding the number of virtual users, the mixture of scripts, locations where load is generated or there is load variation. In consulting projects it is very helpful that project data and reports can be viewed by NeoLoad without the need of a license.

UFT

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

NeoLoad

  • Building performance testing scripts is easy. NeoLoad builds the scripts for you by recording your session as you navigate through the application under test.
  • NeoLoad works with mobile applications using the same recording technique.
  • NeoLoad has modules that permit gathering OS metrics from the target host and correlating the data with the load testing results. The modules are agentless, meaning that there no need to deploy NeoLoad code modules on the host to gather these metrics.

UFT

  • 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

NeoLoad

  • Building Test Plans takes time. When the input fields of page changes it breaks the previous plan. The tool would be better if it had a way to migrate an existing plan and adapt to small changes.
  • Documentation is fair, but would be improved with more detailed screenshot by screenshot configuration changes rather than summation using words.

UFT

  • 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.

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

NeoLoad

As I have always mentioned, you do not need to be super technical in order to get your job done. You do not need to write your script.

UFT

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

NeoLoad

  • The ROI using Neoload has been positive, as we have been able to detect performance issues at te UAT phase and fix them before deploying changes to production environment.

UFT

  • 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.
