How to use QTP without Quality Center
We are currently trailing QTP and Quality Center with our .net application. We are running our applications via citrix and can get QTP but Quality Center just doesn’t want to play nice in this environment. Mercury is sending there experts over to look into it.
Failing this we are looking at keeping QTP as our regression tool but I would like to set up a framework to store, maintain and run the scripts from.
Does anyone have any suggestions as to how to create a custom framework or tool which could be used with QTP
Any info would be great
Re: How to use QTP without Quality Center
I have used QTP for test automation starting in January of this year and I am just now starting to work with Quality center.
You can store all your tests, function libraries and any input data files on a network share. All your test machines can run the tests off the network.
As far as a framework or tool the sky is the limit. What your going to need to become very familiar with is the QuickTest Automation API for starters. Pretty much anything under the QuickTest Advanced References section of the QTP documentation can or will be used.
You can use the QTP Automation for configuring and launching your tests on the fly. Also become familar with the files that QTP creates when it saves a test to your file system. For example in the test directory itself you have an .xls file which is your data table, then you have the Script.mts file in each action folder that contains all the script that you would see in the advanced view of your QTP IDE.
With a bit of creativity and a solid development background you should be able to write your own tool that would atleast allow your users to launch your tests and capture the results.
