I am currently working on a windows based application. We are planning to completely move our UI to Linux..basically a thick application. As per my knowledge QTP doesn't work with Linux. If this is right, what is the alternate i can do. Should I go for someother tool. If yes could somebody give me suggestions.
You may want to take a look at our tool, Eggplant, which can test Unix and Linux applications as well as Windows (and other platforms). If you create some functional tests of the existing Windows version of your application, then you can run those same tests against the Linux version as it is built, to verify that it functions the same way. I would suggest this approach for validating any ported application.
