QTP11 Complete List of New Features

Here I am presenting a complete list of features which are available in the newly launched HP Quicktest Professional 11.

1. Syntax Hints for Regular Expressions

It is now easy to create regular expressions taking help of syntax hints. Regular expression evaluator is available in QTP 11 to test Regular expressions which you have created.

2. Visual Relation Identifiers: Identify objects in relation to other objects

HP R&D team has looked beyond the unreliability of ordinal identifers and come up with a new feature called Visual Relation Identifiers. Ordinal identifers hold good only as long as the relative positions of objects are maintained but if this position changes, the object identification fails.

According to HP Team

"A visual relation identifier is a set of definitions that enable you to identify the object in the application according its neighboring objects in the application. You can select neighboring objects that will maintain the same relative location to your object, even if the user interface design changes. You define visual relations in the Visual Relation Identifier dialog box, which is accessible from the local or shared object repository, and from the Object Properties dialog box."

3. Recording on Firefox Browser

The much anticipated feature ie recording on Mozilla Firefox browser is now available.

4. Load Function Libraries at Run Time

With the help of LoadFunctionLibrary statement. You can now load a function library when a step runs instead of at the beginning of a run session.

5. Much Awaited Log Tracking is available now

HP QTP 11 is nowcapable of receiving Java or .NET log framework messages from your application which can then be embedded in the QTP run results.

6. Managing Test Data

QTP 11 now boasts of an improved test data management on integrating with HP Quality Center.

7. XPath and CSS based object identification

Identify objects not only using normal object identification but with XPath and CSS identifier properties. This is a much awaited and a great feature.

8. Good Looking and Enhanced Results Viewer

HP team has now created a very good looking and some advanced Results viewer in QTP 11. The new improved results viewer provides an executive summary page with summary data, pie charts and statistics for both the current and previous runs and a quick link to the previous run results.

9. WPF and Silverlight Add-in Extensibility SDK

It enables you to develop support for testing third-party and custom WPF and Silverlight controls that are not supported out-of-the-box by the relevant QuickTest add-ins.

10. Embed/Run Javascript in web pages

You can use the new EmbedScript/EmbedScriptFromFile and RunScript/RunScriptFromFile functions to embed JavaScripts in all loaded browser pages and frames or to run JavaScripts in specific pages.

11. Extensibility Accelerator for QuickTest Professional

It provides a Visual Studio like IDE that accelerates and facilitates the design, development and deployment of QuickTest Web add-in extensibility support sets. These support sets extend the web add-ins so that you can test web controls that are not supported out of the box.

12. Automatically Parameterize Steps

You can instruct QTP 11 to automatically parameterize test steps at the end of record session.
