You need to look at TestPartner, QARun is a legacy application that is not actively developed by Compuware.

Go into the download section and get the test tools comparison paper that will tell you about QA Run (even though it was written about 7 years ago). QARun works very well with client/server applications and is good for those more used to a procedural language. QTP is better for those used to vbscript and similar languages. QTP is a little more slick than QARun but in general you can get then both to do a similar job however QTP does excel more in a web environment.

You really need to look at TestPartner instead of QARun.

QARun is no longer actively marketed.

TestPartner is the successor product to QARun, is updated frequently, and has a vibrant community.

TestPartner is vastly more powerful than QARun, but in many respects is easier to use.

Hi,

Can QARun for Win32 04.90.01 Build 422 GA be used for testing applications with a browser interface ?

I appreciate that TestPartner is better, but is this version of QARun good enough ?

Many thanks,
Dave

Dave:

QARun has the ability to test apps in browsers, such as IE. However, support for newer browser versions is being added only in TestPartner.

Yes. I have an extensive test suite running on this version of QARun with a browser interface. The downside is we don't get any support for it from Compuware but, on the other hand, we haven't needed support since it was withdrawn.

Don't expect support for IE8, Firefox 3.5, Windows 7, Flex, WPF, Silverlight or any other new environment. If this is not an issue for you then QARun will work.

One question, can you still buy QARun?

Can QA Run is good for both Web Application and windows base application. Can it record browsing the files from your local machine, uploading it and do comparision etc.?

Please advice.
