Using QuickTest Pro 9.5 by mfx12839



Using QuickTest Pro 9.5 (3 Days)
This core course provides a comprehensive understanding of using Using QuickTest Professional 9.5
as an automated functional testing tool for different environments. You will use QuickTest
Professional’s graphical point and click interface to record and play back tests, add synchronization
points and verification steps, as well as create multiple action tests. You will build upon
fundamental topics by using debug tools to troubleshoot tests and use additional checkpoints and
product options to broaden the scope of business processes that can be automated. Once tests are
created, you will discover and correct common record and play back problems. All topics are
supported by hands-on exercises that are based on real-life examples.

Intended Audience
New users of QuickTest who need to automate manual testing and verification in a short amount of

Working knowledge of: Windows, Web sites and browsers, Testing concepts.

Course Objectives

At the end of the course, you will be able to:
•   Create basic scripts from a manual test case
•   Enhance basic tests with synchronization and verification
•   Parameterize tests to run with multiple sets of data
•   Create and reuse modular actions
•   Use the Object Repository
•   Use debugging tools
•   Use custom checkpoints to create more precise verification points within a test
•   Use the Object Repository Manager
•   Describe and use virtual objects
•   Resolve object recognition problems
