Last Updated on July 29, Luckily, at the last minute I was able to get a ticket thanks Malcolm! During the conference, HP announced the new and soon-to-be-released automation tool, Lean Functional Testing LeanFT , which I think is going to be an automation game changer. HP built LeanFT from the ground up to address the growing modern automation demands of continuous testing, mobile and dev-ops. Remember — Selenium is only for browser-based testing, and does not handle non browser-based popups and windows. This is a major issue, as most experienced testers working in an Enterprise environment will tell you. Quite often our test scripts have to deal with more than just web-based interactions. For example, many end-to-end workflows involve dealing with Windows or Windows-based applications or pop-ups. Cobbling together a solution using Selenium and some other libraries to automate these non-browser based features is difficult and often less than reliable. You can imagine my automation dilemma.

HP UFT Click To Tweet. UFT serves to enhance the user experience by creating checkpoints and check functional aspects of the user interface of the application. Few Features of UFT that lets the test automation engineers automate the applications with ease and ensure quality are:. The whole Agile principles in Software development started with Agile Manifesto. It states that:. For me, Agility brings the Dev, Ops and Test Teams together resulting in great products sticking to above principles.
Why yet another automation tool?

This tool is specially developed for functional and regression testing in the earlier days with some limited features. I think QTP is planning to compete with Selenium which is now considered to be the best in the market for website testing. QTP tool is slowly resolving its negative impact by adding significant essential features to itself. It is available for download, from its native website. Once you start downloading, just join me to know more about its latest features. The key feature of LF. Hence you can use the same programming languages and the unit-testing frameworks which you used previously.
