Just finished doing an eval of Rational Team Test and WinRunner. WinRunner won out for us as it met more of our compatibility needs and was an Oracle Certified Solutions partner. I think that the environment depends on it but Mercury (and their 2nd atry vendors) are real good about doing "proof of concept" tests against your application, or they were for us.

Personally, I liked Rational Robot for automating because the language used is similar to VB, and VB is a language that I am familiar with. With Winrunner, the language used is based from C. I am learning the basics of C by using Winrunner but I've had some adjusting to get used to.
However, I really do like how TestDirector works with Winrunner. I think TestDirector is great.

They are having WinRunner Seminars for the month of Aug. so check the site to see if they have a demonstration seminar near you. I also have a problem with WinRunner where i cant seem to get my scripts working on other workstations. My gui map objects are not recoginzed on the other workstation. Does anyone have a solution to this.
