QA/QTP TESTING TOOLS COURSE CONTENT

Overview:
QTP (QuickTest Professional) software provides functional and regression test automation for software applications and environments. It was initially developed by Mercury Interactive and then acquired by HP (Hewlett-Packward). QuickTest is a graphical interface record-playback automation tool.

Training Objective of QTP:
The Main objective of the QTP (Quick Test Professional) is to make a testing professional aware of automation testing concept with QTP tool. It is an UI automation framework designed mainly for Windows and Web-based applications. One of the most important topics in QTP is the Object Identification, Object Repository, Parameterization, Descriptive Programming, etc.

Manual Testing:
Manual testing is the process of manually testing software for erros. It requires a tester to play the role of an end user, and use most of all features of the application to ensure correct behavior. To ensure completeness of testing, the tester often follows a written test plan that leads them through a set of important test cases.
