    Running tests on \'other\' machines

    Hi,

    I'm currently in the process of making the switch from Winrunner to Quick Test Pro, so am still getting accustomed to the main differences between the two applications.

    I've currently got two concurrent licenses on the go, allowing tests to be developed on two autonomous QTP installs.

    Is it at all possible to run (possibly compiled) tests on machines that do not have the QTP IDE installed, with results being piped out to files for example?

    This would allow tests to be run on machines running at AUT under different environments etc, and will have a bearing on how I will have my machines imaged. I want to have my machines running the AUT to be as close to how they are on the field as possible ie. without QTP installed! Perhaps this is a 'classic paradigm' of automated testing that most companies encounter when taking the automated route. If anyone could share their comments or experiences I'd be very grateful!

    Many thanks,

    Eddie

    QTP scripts can only be executed on PCs that have a full copy of QTP installed--there is no notion of an agent as there is with SilkTest. If you are using a floating license server you can then install QTP on any number of PC but of course only be running two of them concurrently given your description of total licenses above.

    Thanks for the information, I will bear this in mind when setting up my rigs.

    Am now looking forward to rolling up my sleeves and getting down and dirty with some QTP.

    With that attitude you will be proficient in no time. Make sure you prowl through the FAQs at the top of this forum's first page, as it references many good learning articles.

    Re: Running tests on \'other\' machines

    Hi,

    It could be worth considering which QTP features to use...

    Personally I prefer to use a standard COM object if it is simular to QTP's built-in (for example: XML DOM instead of XML Util).

    Why?

    Since each QTP license is costly and you can do a lot automated testing outside QTP, for example using vbs-files.

    I use vbs-files to test my AUT's API and Batch jobs since the tests can executed without license, are easier to schedule and run unattended. I have a shared function library so I can use a function both in QTP and in stand-alone vbs-file.
