    Combo desktop/web-based app test tool

    I have a need to test in different environments which cover both desktop apps as well as web-based apps. The desktop applications are built with VBA (Access 2000) moving into the .NET arena. The web-based apps are built with Macromedia products - ColdFusion and Dreamweaver. I also have an OCR tool (a form development/scanning tool) that needs testing.

    Is there a product that's right for all three environments? Since I am well versed in development, I don't mind scripting.

    I am guessing QTP is VERY expensive... about what ballpark figure per user/seat/qa engineer are we talking?

    You could take a look at QTP...to start anyway..it has support for .Net, Windows based tools and Web.

    Cost of tools is very negotiable and with QTP there is also the cost of add-ins - you should talk to a Mercury salesperson for this information.

    Re: Combo desktop/web-based app test tool

    We probably will, I was just curious myself. We are looking at another tool, qftestJUI that looks very good, is easier to use than QTP and does a better job on our Swing stuff, although it still runs into the same problem with custom painted components thatn QTP does. So no rough idea of how much it costs? Is it like $40K per seat or something? Or $1K per seat?

    Probably more in the 5k area but that's just my guess. Negotiating skills can really help you out though - if you don't ask....you'll never know if you can get them cheaper;.)
