16 New Features of HP UFT (Unified Functional Testing) Tool - QTP vs UFT
The name “Unified” reveals that UFT is an advanced and combined “GUI and API (service)” testing tool, strongly test the functionalities of the front-end and back-end of the software application. Also, UFT supports BPT (Business Process Testing) is a component-based testing framework provides strong and efficient platform to test complete business process manually and automatically, combines manual and automation tests with less duplication and its component reusability feature makes the testing process fast. Enable structured automated testing.
Language support: QTP/UFT uses VB Script as a scripting language, this is only a language fully supported by IDE (Integrated Development Environment) of QTP/UFT. IDE is a user interface of QTP/UFT. Apart from VB Script, it also supports java script and Windows shell script. Using VB Script, user can take the advantages of Object Oriented Programming concepts, but not polymorphism and inheritance.
Technologies support:UFT is available for .Net, Stingray 1, Terminal Emulator, Oracle, Siebel, PeopleSoft, Delphi, Flex, Power Builder, Windows Mobile, Web Services, WPF, SAP, Web, Java (Core and Advanced), VisualAge, Smalltalk, Silverlight and mainframe terminal emulators, these all technologies depends on which UFT version you are using. Current version of UFT 12.01 supports; JDK 1.8, Hyper V and XenDesktop 7 (Technology Preview level), SAP Web Dynpro ABAP for Netweaver 7.40, and Prolonged Internet Explorer support for SAP Web UI.
UFT vs QTP: New features supported by UFT
Although, I mentioned above UFT is a latest version of QTP with many new features are the advanced solution for functional and regression testing. Let’s have a look on the difference between QTP and UFT and all new features supported by UFT that helps developers and testers to test the objects, components and whole applications efficiently and securely,People who are using QTP for past some years and are very friendly with it, every day they test many functionalities of the software application to find and release bugs, during testing process they use many other tools with QTP to provide bug free quality software. Then after releasing UFT, definitely a question comes in mind that why to go for UFT, how UFT is advanced than QTP, how we can test the software application in better manner using UFT new features? Here is the solution of your all questions,
1) HP UFT = HP QuickTest Professional + HP Service Test:
UFT (Unified functional testing) name reveals that is a combination of “HP QuickTest Professional” and “HP Service Test”, means; UFT software package includes all features of QTP and service test both. This integrated HP Unified Functional Testing package facilitates developers and testers to test three layers of the software applications; the Interface layer, the service layer and database layer. QTP only support GUI testing to test the functionalities of Windows and Web applications, but UFT support GUI and API testing both.
16 New Features of HP UFT (Unified Functional Testing) Tool – QTP vs UFT
Overview of UFT (Unified Functional Testing)/QTP:
HP UFT (Unified Functional Testing) tool is an automation functional testing tool, currently available in version 12.01 (from July 2014). Its supported features motivate developers and testers to develop and deliver bug free quality software to meet the business needs. Due to its excellent features, HP UFT software and UFT professionals both are always in demand.It is not a new product of HP, an old product “QTP” QuickTest Professional with new and advance features. Initially, QTP was written by Mercury Interactive and released the first version 5.5 in 2001, later on developed by Hewlett Packard (HP) in 2006. In 2012, HP renewed QTP with the new name UFT; during renewal HP’s UFT version was 11.50. The name “Unified” reveals that UFT is an advanced and combined “GUI and API (service)” testing tool, strongly test the functionalities of the front-end and back-end of the software application. HP said that the new released of UFT 12.01 provides better documentation support as compare to UFT 12.0. Also, UFT supports BPT (Business Process Testing) is a component-based testing framework provides strong and efficient platform to test complete business process manually and automatically, combines manual and automation tests with less duplication and its component reusability feature makes the testing process fast. Enable structured automated testing.

This integrated HP Unified Functional Testing package facilitates developers and testers to test three layers of the software applications; the Interface layer, the service layer and database layer.
QTP only support GUI testing to test the functionalities of Windows and Web applications, but UFT support GUI and API testing both.
2) Browsers supported by QTP and UFT:
UFT runs on all main browsers that user uses regularly for their daily task, like; Internet Explorer v6 -v11, Firefox v3.0 – v31 (uses appropriate patches and service packs), Google Chrome v12 – v35, and Apple Safari (on remote Mac PC) v6, v6.10, v7.00, but QTP basically runs on Internet Explorer, Google Chrome till v36, and Firefox browsers, but not on Apple Safari depends on patches and service packs used. Using Apple Safari browser, UFT runs the test on remote Mac PC efficiently due to secure communication between the UFT PC and the Mac PC, detect the browser object during test to take the snapshot.
4) Welcome page (Start Page) of UFT and QTP:
QTP Welcome Page: Welcome page of QTP is little bit different than UFT, in terms of color, design, text style, and content of the page. In the welcome page, QTP provides process guidance list (Keyword-Driven Testing, Application areas, and Business Components) and many tools icons to test the applications as per the requirement. Also, displays files which you have already opened earlier for work purpose and an option to hide the welcome page.UFT Welcome Page: As, I have already explained that UFT is little bit different than QTP, in terms of color, design, text style, and content of the page. In the welcome page, UFT displays links to open and create a new test file, also many tools to support and maintain that particular file.
5) UFT Installation is faster and secure than QTP:
Although, UFT installation package is smaller than all previous versions; installation process has become very faster and secure, also it takes very less time during installation. Additionally, UFT provides option to install add-in for ALM and the Run Result Viewer with the installation package, installation process can be in any supported language by UFT; no need to install a separate language pack. During installation, it installs and configures all necessary software, tools and add-ins required to run UFT. Securely install the package without disabling the User Account Control (UAC) for your PC.
6) UFT provides all services at one common place (IDE):
UFT v11.5: QTP has distinct options for functional testing; one for GUI testing and another for non-GUI using API Service Test. But, Unified functional Testing (UFT) is a combination of both products (GUI and API) and its features and displays in one common user interface. Initially to test the application, user can choose any one of the option “GUI or API (Service test)” from the “Start page” as per the requirement.UFT v12.0: In addition to GUI and API testing, UFT 12.0 also provides option for Business Process Testing, all together in one common user interface.
7) New Add-Ins – Flex and Qt:
The new version of QTP is supporting two new add-ins: “Flex” and “Qt”.
