Can anyone please let me know if QTP will support DCOM Service based automation, We have a C/C++ based application which uses DCOM (Distributed Com) as a service layer and we are looking for a feasibility to automate this service layer using QTP. Also apart from QTP are there any other tools in market which can help automate DCOM Services.
Since the application is a C/C++ application QTP does not supports the GUI, all objects are identified as winobject and we have to come up with workarounds, There is a roadmap for migrating the C/C++ technology to Silverlight and hence triggering a rework on the scritps developed. So as we do automate Web Services using QTP for a critical scenario testing dev team asked if it possible to automate the DCOM which acts as a service layer for the current application, reason for DCOM level service based testing is it will not get changed on a longer run hence we will have good ROI out of automating the service layer rather the GUI which is intended to change in technology. I hope i had cleared your question.
