I am looking for some information regarding functional testing with QTP and the “Staffware Process Suite”. )*

In our case Staffware runs on a server (Sun Solaris) and the front-end for the user is a web client (IE on Windows 2000). For this last part I see no problems to test it with QTP.

But there are also a lot of process-steps (within the through Staffware generated business process) which have no user interaction and take place only on the server (e.g. started after a special time or during external events). For every accomplished step is a XML file accessible.

Is it possible for QTP to include also this backend functionality into the test process?



*) Staffware is a BPM-Tool from TIBCO ()
