5 Day(s)


This core course provides a comprehensive understanding of using QuickTest Professional 11.0 as an automated functional testing tool

You will use the point and click interface to record and play back tests, add synchronization points and verification steps, and create multiple action tests. Once tests are created, you will discover and correct common record and play back problems

In addition, you will learn to use Expert View to create steps that work with dynamic objects and data, use VBScript conditional and looping statements to control the flow of your tests and components, and use Data Table methods and database connection objects to retrieve external data. All topics are supported by hands-on exercises based on real-life examples
