    Most of the shortcomings come from the automator or misunderstandings of the people who just had to have this tool and didn't do a lot of research. Why not focus on the positives? What is the purpose of your need? What is the context?

    QTP is only limited by the inability of people to think for themselves.

    Any automation tool is as good|bad
    as hands and mind of automator, who is using it.

    1. Datatables are a liability
    2. Using inbuilt checkpoints of any kind is a liability
    3. Using QTP the way Mercury intended is a liability

    That said and as some others have said how good a tool is, is only limited by your imagination and your coding skills.

    I have a framework that I have used with Rational Robot QTP 8.2 & 9.0 and Compuware TestPartner (and the less said about TestPartner the better off we all are).

    QTP is only a tool add some imagination and it can be a very good tool. Use it the way Mercury intended and it is a very average tool.

    Hmm. Limitations. Well my bias for a programming language is 'C,' not VB. So every time I go to program I have to translate on the fly (think in C, write in VB derivative). So, I call this a limitation. You can decide is this is a personal limitation or a tool based one.

    On the tool side, let's see. QTP doesn't support the following apps/dev environments.
    <ul type="square">[*]PowerBuilder[*]Baan[*]Centura[*]Delphi[*]Forte[*]Siebel 5&amp;6[*]SmallTalk[*]Stingray[*]explicit Clarion objects[/list]

    It only runs on Windows. If I have to test something that runs in X-Windows I have to move to another Mercury tool which has a different language. I would call this a limitation.

    It doesn't run on my copy of Windows 3.1 that I keep around for compatibility testing. I would call this a limitation.

    The box is not quite heavy enough to use a doorstop to keep the hydraulic arm from closing my office door. I would call this a limitation.
