HP QuickTest Pro 10 Beta

Sentinel627 Greg Annen Profile: Sentinel627

My current employer is about to participate in a beta test for HP’s QuickTest Professional 10 release, also known as “Atlantis”. This release was demo’ed at HP’s Software Universe expo this summer. I did not attend this event, but from what I have read, it has some long-awaited features.

Tighter integration with Quality Center 10

Source Control:

  • Check-In/Check-Out, at the user level
  • Versioning, single resource, multiple folders and project-wide

Resource Management:

  • View OR’s, datatables, and library code from QC
  • Dependency visibility and warnings
  • Automatic path tracking when moving resources
  • Shared OR user information

QuickTest Pro Features


  • Traceability to a line of code in an action script
  • Export to Word, PDF, or through XSL
  • Include Windows Performance Monitor data, related to test steps
  • Include bitmap attachments

User Interface:

  • Improved autocomplete and intellisense
  • Tasks and Comments pane
  • Code-zone identifiers – blocks of code like ‘If…Then’ marked with blue lines
  • Custom toolbars

General Goodies:

  • Enhanced bitmap checkpoints
  • Local copy of test includes linked resources
  • Load external actions without previously associating them

We don’t yet have Quality Center 10, so I will also be interested in the beta version’s integration with previous versions of QC. And the ease of converting/migrating scripts and resources from previous versions of QTP.

I will post future articles about this beta test as it progresses.
