I'm doing evaluation on testing tool for web testing (Jave and oracle based). My question are:
(1)There are a lot of web testing tools in the market. Which tool the is the best tool to do web testing.
(2)Is there web site or article talking about this?
Quicktestpro from mercury is another tool that you can use for web testing. This tools does both stand-alone applications and web-based application.
Mercury has a full functioning download free for 8 days. This tools is keyed to the PC where you installed. Once you download, you have 8 days to try it and they mean 8 days.
Thank you for your information. I'm going to try it.
Are you talk about "Astra QuickTest(Mercury)"? I heared of that it is built specifically to test Web-Based application. It helps ensure that objects, images, and text on Web pages function properly and can test multiple browsers. Astra QuickText providers record and playback support for every ActiveX control in a Web browser and uses checkpoints to verify specific information during a test run.
I have used WinRunner to do web test for about 2 years. Compare WinRunner and QuickTest, which one is better for web testing?
That's a nice comparison of the tools, thanks for sharing it. The only thing I would be careful of is the versions used for the side by side comparison. While I'm sure this is accurate for the version of each tool, it is not longer up to date. The chart uses QTP 5.02 for comparison, and QTP 8.0 was released fairly recently. My experience is with QTP 6.0 and 6.5, and some of the features that are marked as a "?" in 5.02 seem to have been added to 6.5.
It is always important to realise that just because a test tool is stated by the supplier as supporting a particular environment/language etc. does not mean that it will work well against your specific application.
The golden rule is
PERFORM A PROOF OF CONCEPT.
identify 3 tools you think fit best. Contact the supplier of the tools and get them to come on site and try their tool out against your application (define what you want them to do before hand).
Having spent 4 years working for one of the major tool vendors you quickly learn that you cannot assume anything about the way the tools work.
I've seen a lot of people move organisations, take the tool that they have experience in and waste a lot of time and money trying to get it to work on their new application.
Suck it and see - would be my recommendation.
