HP QuickTest Pro 10 Beta: The End?

Sentinel627 Greg Annen Profile: Sentinel627

Yesterday I said, “I hope I don’t find out tomorrow that QTP 10 is not compatible with QC 9.0.”

Guess what? QTP 10 is not compatible with Quality Center 9.0 — at least as far as saving Business Components, scripted or otherwise!

It does allow me to save QTP scripts, function libraries, and other low level resources. But not Business Components.

Game Over, Man!

“A warrior does not live to Hope; a warrior lives to Fight!”

There was one last chance. A couple months ago, HP had opened up an evaluation site for Quality Center 9.2 so that we could try out some web services testing tools. Was this still available? It was still in my list of IE Favorites. I tried it. It was.

With my last few minutes of available beta-tesing time, I verified that QTP 10 could save business components to QC 9.2. It does.

The larger problem still remains: my company has no intention of upgrading Quality Center any time soon, so a QTP 10 upgrade would be useless.

Will Greg’s company finally upgrade?

Will HP relent and make patches that make old and new work together?

Watch for future episodes of this blog to find out!
