Link checks via QTP
Is it possible to create a link-checking “spider” with QTP? In other words, can we create a script which will check all the links on a start page and the the links on those linked pages and so-on?
I am looking for something similar to Pinger,FireFox add-on functionality in QTP.
Has anyone done this?Any thoughts?
Re: Link checks via QTP
This has been talked about in several threads. There's code out there that checks all the links on one page. You could break that out to spider an entire site while keeping a log of links you already visited so you don't go into an endless loop.
But you're going to hit a big limitation of QTP in that it is single threaded and you really want multi-threading for something like this. Plus there are already free tools out there that are able to do this efficiently such as Xenu link checker.
