Yesterday I had the chance o attend one of the local user group meet. I found mercury has been promoting quick test pro strongly. Though they said that WR will be supported. Now 'SUPPORTED' term looks like something that will have less releases & enhancements but only support will be there. It seems like quick test pro is going to be there upcoming tool. They said currently out of every 3 licenses issued 1 is for qucik test pro.
My company has WR but I have not started on automated test scripts since my app is having issues with JAVA add-ins. Now taking account of the above facts it looks like I should keep my eyes open towards the use of quick test pro. So my question to you all is to any suggestions & ideas is approach to quick test pro in my case seems feasible in long run. Obviously I have to make sure that management is convinced to go for quick test pro, after already the investment has been made for WR. And for that I may have to do some comparative study of features of both tools. Please give your ideas and thoughts.
Thanks in advance to all.....
Re: QuickTest Pro
The signs have been there for those that cared to see them since last year. The paucity of new functionality in the latest release of WR was another big hint.
The dilemma is that QTP is not a straight WR replacement. My views on WR are well known on this forum (obsolete proprietary technology) so naturally I'd encourage you not to go down that path. If QTP supports your environment then ask Mercury for a WinRunner/QTP license swap. Be prepared to go to another vendor if they won't do it and ignore any blandishments about LoadRunner or Test Director integration - it's much ado about nothing.
GUI automation is GUI automation. It is not testing.

I agree with your comments. In my company there are 2 groups who are using WR. c/s & web group. me in later has to start scripting. The other group has already ben using WR for past 1 year. since i am having issues with java add-ins with my web apps, I am currently still. Now asking for another alternative other than mercury tool may be too much to ask...Well I have asked mercury to send me an evaluation copy of QTP and then may be I could make some conclusions
