    SAP

    What is different about testing SAP or other ERP systems.
    Why do vendors like Mercury have separate offerings for these environments.

    ------------------
    GUI automation is GUI automation. It is not testing.

    Re: SAP

    Applications such as SAP and Siebel are almost development environments, as their gui's can be customized using a master gui. These companies therefore needed to provide their customers and field implementers with an easy way to test their customized apps. This need was filled by specialized addins developed by Mercury. In the case of SAP the first step was a WinRunner addin, then a custom product (Quicktest SAP). The addins aren't really necessary, however, as you can test SAP and Siebel with the stand alone WinRunner.

    Seeing as you've said you don't really need the add-in, I'm still confused.

    Re: SAP

    The addins and specialized product were developed because of $$$.

    SAP and Siebel payed Mercury to develop these.

    Do you think Mercury would say "No, the stand alone Win Runner works. No need for us to accept this contract."
