I worked at AutoTester for 6 years and can probably answer most any question you have. As far as ease of use, it depends on the usual variables, for instance the type and complexity of testing you are doing. Maintenance is like most other tools, once you get comfortable with it you eventually get over the learning curve. I found the product to be one of the easier automated products to use, although it does have some limitations. Let me know if there are any specific questions you may have.
Thanks for the response ahutch21! I'm testing in a jdk 1.3 environment with Oracle database. Most everything I can do via UI, but the tricky thing is that to achieve 100% requires controlling other boxes as well as an external piece of hardware. I'm not sure any automated test tool can really cover all that easily. Are there any other tools you might recommend instead?

We are trying to automate our tests on our Progress 4 GL environment (v9). Do you know if Autotester supports Progress, or does it need a workable workaround?
Other questions we have:
- can you set up data driven tests easily?
- are the generated scripts easy to maintain?
- Do you know anything about the new version Autotester 2.0, especially the TestManagement capabilities?
