News QTP and Stuff
Theo Moore Questions... Morphology? Longevity? Incept dates?

I am finally working exclusively in our QTP environment developing automated tests for our software.

I also now know a lot more about what we use, and can comment on it. As it turns out, we are *not* using .Net yet, but instead the entire adaptation of QTP is done via VBScript. We have a large script Action (QTP users will know what I mean) that allows us to use Excel sheets (Yuck!) to write scripts using a very specific set of keywords to run our tests.

I think the idea was orignially to have this be an “over the wall” tool, where people (manual testers) could write simplified scripts to perform some of their testing. However, the manual testers didn't have sufficient time to learn a new tool and still get their testing done. This is a problem I've seen often when new tools are introduced; sufficient time isn't provided to allow the tester to acclimate.

Personally, I find the scripting setup cumbersome, and there is a list of enhancements I want to make. You see, this now isn't an “over the wall” tool. I am the automation team, effectively. I have a lead, but he's busy leading a development team for an internal product as well as automation. His time is severely limited where automation is concerned. Fine with me; I will re-fashion some of the functionality in my own image. Heck, if I'm running it, and there's something I want it to do differently, then I say I should go for it.

However, let me tell you something: QTP's IDE is just terrible! Not having intellisense is annoying but the lack of a real immediate window is simply driving me nuts!

Something else interesting going on. I mentioned to my manager that I am giving a presentation at the Charleston Code Camp on nUnit, and thinks I should give one to our developers, too. We, as a company, are intending to move to .Net development, and away from .ASP. She feels that perhaps we might get the developers interested in TDD, and nUnit would be an easy way. After all, good unit testing makes our job easier. Of course, as a STE, presenting such information to our developers might start a small riot.... I am crossing my fingers.....

Hi,

Currently we writing our script in QTP 8.2. Here come along the requirement that we have to cover the window 98 OS which will only support by QTP version 6.5. So let's the conversion begin. Darn! Look how many actions we have...and all those scripts...cheese...

Can you recommend anything? We will probably have to copy and paste one by one into notepad and create them in 6.5 version. If you have any better idea please comment. Is there such thing as automating QTP using QTP? :>

The worst part of QTP is finding a way to pass variables between actions.

I have 12 years of WR experience. 6 months of QTP. I just finished my last gig on Friday. Do you know of any work in North or South East of the U.S? I am a U.S. citizen and live in NYC and FL.

I am not sure, really. I don't think that MIC supports 6.5 much anymore; I am pretty sure they don't make updates to it, in any event. I'd ask them directly, as they could give you a much better answer than I have. I sure wish I could be more help!

On using using QTP 8.0+ scripts in QTP 6.5. Copying the scripts into notepad, then pasting into 6.5 will not do it. You are going to have to run the script in update mode to get the objects into QTP. Passing the parameters from one version to another is just copy and paste from one spreadsheet to another. You might want to copy them to a copy of excel and then copy them from the there. Working backwords like that is a pain. Good luck and let me know if my suggestions work.

Left by dipali on Jun 21, 2007 8:51 AM

# re: QTP: More info
Requesting Gravatar...
Um..I'm not sure there is a limit. Where you run into limits with QTP is in the data sheets. You can only have 256 columns in a data sheet so if your resuable actions are dropping all their data into the global sheet, you may find yourself running out of columns.

As far as number of actions, I have scripts that have atleast 25 resuable actions linked to the main driver script and in some cases those actions are called multiple times...
