I have been using both these tools. rational sc has ability get past login
screens via the "realms" feature, however it does not support unique session
ids. Ie if you log in to a secure site with a particular userid/pwd and then
log out a particualr "string" is used for that session. SC can't handle this
"unique" session id.
Luke, if you "can't access the site" then 99% of the time is the settings
you use from the root parameter to the version of browser you select. A
little mucking around should get you results.
Testfactory however, is another kettle of fish ! it is a good tool, but
requires a lot of work to understand and get going so that you understand
the mapping and piloting process.
All I can say is to try them out for yourself to see if they meet your
"Give yourself to the darkside"

Have not used either myself, but a coworker who used to use Site Check in
Robot version 6.x was unable to get Robot 2000 version to work with a site
that required a logon. Rational support told him to automate the logon
process and start site check using a Robot script, but he was unable to
get it working.
I just tried it against sqa-suite-users using Robot 2000.02.10. The "Web
Site Compare" util ignored the current browser session and started
baseline and new sessions from scratch, so got stuck at the logon screen
(as expected). After awhile, I got a Rational SiteCheck dialog "Rational
SiteCheck was unable to open the specified site", followed by "SQA7STCH
caused an invalid page fault in module SQA7STCH.EXE..." error (SiteCheck
killed itself). This util uses a wizard to prompt for the two sites to
compare. I did not see any way to tell it to use the current browser
I then tried using Result = WebSiteVP(SiteCheck, "",
"ExpectedResult=PASS") instead, and it returned a FAIL result with the
description "A program error occured during execution of the verification
point". WOW, that's really useful information -- NOT!!! The code up to
this call executed fine as expected, but
I have no idea what the WebSiteVP actually tried to do. The 'example' in
online help is useless.

Era - let me give you a quick (but admittedly a somewhat biased) overview:
Rational SiteCheck is a great tool to test and manage your Web
applications. It recursively parses HTML files until all links have been
tested. While it is parsing, it also tests the content of the files to
ensure that user defined rules are not violated. SiteCheck offers full
drag 'n drop management and editting capabilities (the global replace
feature is really useful for managing Robot scripts).
SiteCheck is integrated with Rational Robot (you can invoke tests of a web
site/application from verification points in your Robot scripts) and also
Rational ClearQuest (you can log defects to CQ from within the SiteCheck
SiteCheck has a companion application - SiteMonitor - that allows you to
test and monitor your site/application at defined intervals. (SiteMonitor
allows you to launch Robot scripts at defined intervals as well.)
Many of the readers of this forum are well aware that Rational SiteCheck
is a variant of our COAST WebMaster application. COAST WebMaster 6.0 was
launched yesterday and we are offering special pricing that allows
Rational customers to upgrade their copy of Rational SiteCheck to COAST
COAST WebMaster 6.0 has all the functionality of SiteCheck (including
Robot and CQ integration) as well as support for:
- .NET/XML Web services
- JSP pages, and
- session IDs (I think that Joe will be pleased to hear this :-)
Content testing has been extended to include compound rules and regular
expressions. Reports are now available in HTML, CSV and XML.
There is a section on our Web site (http://www.coast.com) dedicated to
Rational customers... check it out! I'd be happy to answer any specific
SiteCheck or COAST WebMaster questions offline.
