VBScript is NOT VB (vbscript is free and not supported by anyone, VBA is licensed/supported by Microsoft.) No other tool on the market uses true Microsoft VB as its language AND IDE.
This means that you could write an entire VB program in TestPartner, just not complied to an exe. Furthermore its the Microsoft VB UI which means Intellesense, Strong Debugging, the ability to add reference to external DLLs, and an environment that millions of people already know.
-1 tool for all envrioments... no plug ins.
-Very strong object recognition and flexibility in interpreting objects.
-repository based... all test assets stored centrally. Assets can be separated by project and user rights can be admined on the project level.
- TestPartner is part of the QACenter suite which includes Req Mgt, Test Planning, Test Data Mgt, and Defect tracking.
