TestComplete

The more we use TestComplete, the easier it gets to work with. SmartBear has made it easy to interact with user-built script libraries that we can re-use across projects which has saved massive amounts of time in coding. It interacts pretty easily with SQL Server where we house and manage all our test cases. We use the TestExecute application to run the scripts we develop on TestComplete in many environments for many different kinds of testing and performing manually repetitive tasks. It has enabled us to simplify environment setup whenever we set up new environments, automate user creations, spread testing to multiple PCs, and has saved literally tens of thousands of man hours in various testing and business functions.Most of the issues we have run into (changing object references as applications develop and unreliable websites) have been solved with custom object identification and error handling functions.

UFT

When we need to execute the same test in different browsers cross-browser testing), UFT is the best tool as it supports all the major browsers. In a smaller organisation budget is the key, UFT will not be wiser to use. Since in my program as well we are able to get even- after 2 years. I will recommend any open source tools like Selenium for automation where a budget is key. Selenium can integrate with just about anything to give you a robust framework such as Maven or Ant for source code compilation, Test NG to drive tests, Jenkins for continuous integration and different reports or dashboards like allure reports.

Pros

TestComplete

  • A very low entry point, with a very high skill ceiling - It doesn't take a lot to get started in Testcomplete and I feel like I'm always learning a new use or function that I hadn't thought of or knew before.
  • Feedback - The live debugging in script creation is very useful and it's very rare that I have a test fail and Testcomplete does not give me a descriptive enough answer to correct the issue.
  • A large tool set - There are a large number of features that can be used to aid in the automation process. Testcomplete has different wizards and object tools that allow me to tailor the creation process to how I want it to be.

UFT

  • Integration & Support: a) The way tool integrates with other platforms like .net, mainframe is amazing. It Supports new and legacy web technologies, terminal emulators, and Windows thick client applications. b) It Supports Continuous integration by integrating with Jenkins, Git etc. c) UFT supports cross browser testing & it supports all main browsers like IE, Firefox, Chrome and Apple Safari. d)It’s compatibility with ALM can help store automation execution results back in ALM & even allows us to schedule the automation execution at required date/time.
  • Amazing Features: UFT has so many features but at the same time, it is quite easy to learn & it doesn’t take long to train staff on it. Few amazing features which adds lot of value while scripting are:
  • a) Test Combinations Generator (TCG) - It helps to create test configurations by using the parameters in tests and their possible values to create multiple possible data combinations.
  • b) Insight Recording – It recognizes controls based on their appearance and not their native properties. This can be useful to test controls from an environment that UFT does not support or even from a remote computer running a non-Windows operating system. When UFT runs the test or component, it recognizes the controls in the application by matching them to the images saved with each of the Insight test objects.
  • c) UFT has built in reporting features as well as allowing for customized output files showing exactly where a test step failed along with the timestamp.
  • UFT supports BPT (Business Process Testing), a component-based testing framework which provides strong and efficient platform to test complete business process manually and automatically combines manual and automation tests with less duplication and its component reusability feature makes the testing process very fast.
  • It helps improving efficiency in regression testing and functional testing, in that we automate a lot of repeatable tasks.
  • Organization doesn’t need to have a skilled coder to write a basic automation script with UFT.

Cons

TestComplete

  • Occasional crashes - sometimes a recorded test can cause the application to crash if it is too large for the system it's running on.
  • Missing sort/search functionality in some places - There are some places where you can only search one field when there are multiple being displayed. It makes it difficult to find script files when I'm adding them as a test item.
  • High skill ceiling - while I listed this as a positive, it can sometimes be daunting moving into an area that has a ton of options or variables that you can change with very little description next to the options.

UFT

  • Very expensive tool for startup or small organization. HP should offer different payment plans and different package.
  • UFT should improve more in the cross browser compatibility side and different OS platform.
  • Should improve in supporting MAC OS system

Besides the good GUI with flexible settings, application has a great support. Customers are involved in development process, can send feature requests and vote for them. Some of my requests already implemented or coming soon.

Alternatives Considered

TestComplete

Unit testing solutions are great, but not effective when the interface needs to be tested, or when there are multi-step complicated scenarios that need to be set up and reviewed.

Return on Investment

TestComplete

  • Positive impact is the ability to automate the manual test cases/scenarios which was tedious and time consuming for web/desktop applications and mobile apps using TestComplete tool and different scripting languages.
  • We can learn to automate manual test cases (using record & play back feature initially).
  • Easy to debug automation code when compile / run time error occurs..

UFT

  • UFT is a very good investment for any organization because one tool is capable of handling different types of testing, so the organization is spending more money for one tool rather spending a higher price for different set of tools for different purposes.
  • HP does offer good packages and payment plans for UFT licenses and the price is well managed if the number of licenses increases.
  • One of the most reliable and oldest tools in the market which provides available resource and technical support based on an organization's need.
