Researching Test Management Tools
      #636161 - 07/26/10 08:40 AM

Hi,

I started not too long ago a new job and I need to find a Test Management Tool. Maybe Open Source, inexpensive; I also would like the option to assign test cases to users (maybe 20) and open bugs from that tool. I looked at TestLink and QATraq. Just wanted to know if anyone had any experience with these tools or others. We have here Jira, so integration with Jira would be great, or I can consider installing also a Bug Tracking Tool to integrate with whatever Test Management tool I'll get.
Any ideas, comments, would be very very appreciated!

Thanks!
B.

We have used ApTest Manager for several years. It is inexpensive compared to some of the big name tools, and it is much more flexible/customizable. We have not used any of the integrations, so I can't comment on that. It can do the user assignment you want.

Thanks!
I am drilling down some more in my search and now looking at SpiraTest (looking good so far...). ApTest seems expensive ($8500 for 20 users...??)
If anyone has any more input, I would love to hear it!

Thanks, started their demo. They're also expensive though. Also looking at Testuff. Cool features and nice look&feel. Does anyone have long experience with Testuff? What do you think? Thanks!

Still need to try latest version - 1.9;

Does this post relate to estimation and planning?

Probably you would need lifecycle management tools like QC11 ALM,Borland and Mingle.

We're also doing research for Open Source Test Management Tools. We're starting to check TestLink, RTMR, Vienna Test Management and XStudio.

Can you guys suggest any other open source Test Management Tool with the same caliber as QD and TFS?

I've checked QAtraq, but it doesn't seem to be open source (?)

I don't know how you measure the caliber of test management tools, but have you seen this list?

Yes, we have already checked that link. That is where we started with our research on available test management tools.

We're comparing the features of TFS and QC to any open source test mgmt tool.

Thanks!

I've worked with many of these tools (paid and open-source), including managing the QA for Quality Center for Mercury a while back, and today developing a QA Management System called PractiTest (which I recommend you check in any case, we even have a 30-Day Free Trial ).

I don't know of any open source tool that comes close to TFS or QC, but from all them I have been most impressed with TestLink.

I think that you can find today many alternative solutions, so you should think twice before limiting yourself to these 2 options (Open Source vs Large Enterprise).

My 2 cents,

We are also looking for an open source APPS, that can offer same sort of utilities i.e.;

Test Case Mngt,
Test Run Mngt
Defects Tracking with some Reporting as QC does.

We are looking into Bugzilla and Testopia together.

I would appericate any input or feedback on "Jeera" also

Thanks

Steeveth, are you associated with the rmtr "organization?"

We get a lot of posts just like this one. Many of them are from someone trying to sneak in advertising without paying for it. They go something like "I just tried xxxx. It's a really good product. I highly recommend it."

If that is true in your case, please be honest, and describe your affiliation in your signature.

Most of the reference sites were blocked for me, so i am sorry if iam re-iteratiing the same thing here, but below are my perceptions

Do not restrict to the tool, how ever you need to understand the process how you follow and make requirements accordingly and then start searching for a tool that would give either in open source/ enterprise edition.

These things would help us to evaluate easier when compare different tools though only to our requirements

TestLink is one of my Favorite tool, which really had an lot of features but the only drawback i see is no proper documentation work done but its worth a tool to give a try.

There have been many changes within the test management tools since your original post, but I would recommend qTest since it has been proven to offer more variety and full-functioning features than the current leading tools. Check out this comparison chart and try it out yourself. qTest comparison

sarahnguyen - While we welcom vendors, it would be best if you include your company affiliation in your Signature line if you are going to post recommendations for your product.
