Is there any plan or information like implementing independent tool for UFT scripts execution as TestExecute by SmartBear. No license required to use TestExecute, only license required for TestComplete where we able to design the scripts with IDE features.
I know we have HP ALM and HP Sprinter from we can distribute the testing but in the remote machines to where we are distributing execution should have installed full UFT licensed version. Curious to know if any tools implemented by HP/Mercury for just executing the UFT scripts just like UFT's independent Test Result Viewer.
I know that HP has received many requests from clients to implement an "execution-only" engine for UFT that could be installed on end points and would not include the ability to develop test scripts. If this is something you are interested in, you should contact HP Support and open an enhancement request. The more people ask for it, the sooner they might implement it.
@Trudy - Yes, Exactly the same I am looking for. I will add an enhance request.
I believe the tools like Silent Test Runner, Test Batch Runner all expect the UFT to be installed in that machine so that it will utilize UFT to run the test. I am expecting Execution Only tool so that I can utilize my licenses only for script developers and use Execution Only tool for Manual Testers or those who are doing only execution.
We're thinking of cancelling our next renewal. Especially since the newer UFT has a huge memory leak unlike in QTP. We're already evaluating other tools and having companies do POCs. Looks like a lot of companies are leaving HP. WAY over priced.
This year at HP Discover they announced that the next release of UFT (expected later this year) would include an execution engine for which separate, cheaper licenses could be purchased. If you have UFT licenses you get the Execution Engine. The Engine will consume full UFT licenses if you don't have Engine-only licenses.
