I have a situation that I need help. I have an experienced TeamTest team
here who uses every feature of TeamTest (unfortunately it's version 6.1)
that is available. We have 10 or more projects, more than 3500 scripts,
2000 requirements and 1500 defects (most of them closed) in our repository.
Senior management decided that we need more automation therefore, they are
choosing tools to support the effort. The central product is Merant/PVCS
Dimension. Because Mercury has claimed to WinRunner integration with
Dimension, and Integrated Chipware claim that RTM (Requirements Traceability
and Management tool) integrates with WinRunner, they are leaning towards
those tools. They have this concept to purchase tools that are the Best at
what they do, and unfortunately, they are listening to the vendors.
I am soliciting your expert opinion to convince management that TeamTest
will serve our purpose. But I have to overcome the argument that it does
not interface with Dimensions seamlessly.

I hope that I am not to late, but Mercury's claim is not entirely true. The
do integrate with PVCS but it is a one way integration and it is there Test
Manager that does this and not WinRunner so you would have to spend an extra
$50,000. If you want the details on this I can give them to you. I would
strongly urge you to ask Mercury to show you how the integration works and
tell them that you want to see a Defect created in PVCS from WinRunner and
then close the defect in PVCS and see it updated in the Mercury Test
Manager. I can tell you that they can't do any part of this as they have
I can also tell you that it is possible to do this, but you will have to
write scripts in the VAPI to make it happen. This is a time consumming
highly technical task and for the money your company is planning on
spending, I doubt you would want to have to do this too.
