Comparison of features btween v2002 and v7
I work with Peoplesoft HR application, where Peoplesoft bundle in Robot. They are about to bundle v2002, whereas I think the previous version is v7.
At present I don't have either, so would like a brief comparison of the two. Is it worth waiting for the lastest before starting to use?
Also, when was Web Functional testing added to Robot - in v7 or v2002.

Re: Comparison of features btween v2002 and v7
We've been using Robot for Web Functional Testing since before Rational bought the company (SQA) and gave it release numbers.
To be completely honest with you, I don't remember a Robot version 7. I remember 6.1, which was released in... late 99 maybe? Rational does releases every 6 months, so even if there was a version 7, it was before the v2000 release, making it 3 years and at least 5 releases old. Without finding a copy, I couldn't begin to tell you the difference.
Definately do not assume a clear or simple upgrade path from this ver 7 to ver 2002. I won't advise you to wait since I really don't have enough context to make such a recommendation, but I will say that you should assume that those two versions are very similar as far as interface or interoperability goes.
