I have been using QuickTest Pro for 2 years now. Prior to that, I was a C++ developer for nearly 7 years before moving to C#. I have created few good test suites with QuickTest, but I don't think they're vast enough to be called frameworks.
I wanted to ask the experts and the active community members if there are any good QTP frameworks available for viewing? I saw a few, but I am not sure how to differentiate between them. Your suggestions would really help and guide me in my attempt to develop one.
Hmm.. I don't think my users are proficient enough in QTP to load all objects to a Shared OR. I was looking for something that enables the users to create test cases off something like an Excel Sheet, or a text/word file..
Thank you, Ian. I did search and found a few frameworks by Ian Fraser, Yaron Assa, Anshoo Arora and Open2Test. I hope I didn't miss anything.
Yaron and Anshoo - I haven't explored OOPs in VBScript much so these were quite hard to understand. I do like the Excel tables very much. The code is quite impressive here. These don't seem to be tied to a particular technology and do not depend on OR..
Open2Test seems a bit complicated too, and there are different types of frameworks for different technologies. I was thinking of creating a single framework for multiple technologies.. but this will be possible later.
Your framework gave me a good idea and I would like to begin with a similar approach that I can easily follow until I am comfortable with a generic approach.
What I would like to create is what you guys have with the descriptive Excel sheets but keep all object descriptions separate. The frameworks I see have descriptions within the Excel workbook and I would like to avoid that.
Do these frameworks belong to different generations? What's the difference generation wise?
How do you feel about the other 3 frameworks I was able to find above?
