    WinRunner vs. QARun

    My company has about 30 e-commerce web sites and 4 client/server apps. but are by no means a big company (4 people in our QA Dept.) We are in the beginning stages of implementing automated testing. Any advise?? Thanks.

    Re: WinRunner vs. QARun

    Manual testing is the best first step. Design test cases, run to or three cycles and then proceed to automation. hear good things abour QA RUN too. For functionality, manual testing is more reliable and hat is my experience. We also plan automation but never get there. I used SILK and loved it. Never used winrunner or qarun or rational but are considered top-ranked products. I prepare checklist of the tests required and then check it against the features of the test tools.

    Re: WinRunner vs. QARun

    I definitely recommend Mercury's LoadRunner over QA Load for load testing websites. LoadRunner is much easier to learn/use and costs much less.

    Our company has purchased both. We load test our own webservers with LoadRunner and use QA
    Run to automate client/server testing and we are starting to use it for web testing. Currently we find that web tests require modification or rewriting when web sites are changed (most of our sites are Cold-Fusion - if that could make a diff.).
    A problem is a difference between what is perceived and what is desired, that
    we want to reduce

    ColdFusion is a product by Allaire (http://www.allaire.com/). It is basically one of the better known application servers out there for the Web, utilizing CFML (ColdFusion Markup Language) to provide easy access to databases and scripting logic.

    Drazle's point is good: such a thing can make a difference (possibly) in your decision depending on what types of applications servers you use, like NetDynamics, Dynamo, etc.
