Q. Explain about the Test Fusion Report of QTP ?

A) Once a tester has run a test, a TestFusion report displays all
aspects of the test run: a high-level results overview, an expandable
Tree View of the test specifying exactly where application failures
occurred, the test data used, application screen shots for every step
that highlight any discrepancies, and detailed explanations of each
checkpoint pass and failure. By combining TestFusion reports with
QuickTest Professional, you can share reports across an entire QA
and development team.
Q. To which environments does QTP supports ?
A) QuickTest Professional supports functional testing of all enterprise
environments, including Windows, Web, ..NET, Java/J2EE, SAP,
Siebel, Oracle, PeopleSoft, Visual Basic, ActiveX, mainframe
terminal emulators, and Web services.
Q. What is QTP ?
A) QuickTest is a graphical interface record-playback automation tool. It is able to work with any web, java or windows client application. Quick Test enables you to test standard web objects and ActiveX controls. In addition to these environments, QuickTest Professional also enables you to test Java applets and applications and multimedia objects on Applications as well as standard Windows applications, Visual Basic 6 applications and .NET framework applications...
Q.Explain QTP Testing process ?
A) The QuickTest testing process consists of 6 main phases:
1. Create your test plan
Prior to automating there should be a detailed description of the test including the exact steps to follow, data to be input, and all items to be verified by the test. The verification information should include both data validations and existence or state verifications of objects in the application.
2. Recording a session on your application
As you navigate through your application, QuickTest graphically displays each step you perform in the form of a collapsible icon-based test tree. A step is any user action that causes or makes a change in your site, such as clicking a link or image, or entering data in a form.
2. Enhancing your test
o Inserting checkpoints into your test lets you search for a specific value of a page, object or text string, which helps you identify whether or not your application is functioning correctly.
NOTE: Checkpoints can be added to a test as you record it or after the fact via the Active Screen. It is much easier and faster to add the checkpoints during the recording process.
o Broadening the scope of your test by replacing fixed values with parameters lets you check how your application performs the same operations with multiple sets of data.
o Adding logic and conditional statements to your test enables you to add sophisticated checks to your test.
3. Debugging your test
If changes were made to the script, you need to debug it to check that it operates smoothly and without interruption.
4. Running your test on a new version of your application
You run a test to check the behavior of your application. While running, QuickTest connects to your application and performs each step in your test.
5. Analyzing the test results
You examine the test results to pinpoint defects in your application.
6. Reporting defects
As you encounter failures in the application when analyzing test results, you will create defect reports in Defect Reporting Tool.
Q.Explain the QTP Tool interface.



 It contains the following key elements:

Title bar, displaying the name of the currently open test

Menu bar, displaying menus of QuickTest commands

File toolbar, containing buttons to assist you in managing tests

Test toolbar, containing buttons used while creating and maintaining tests

Debug toolbar, containing buttons used while debugging tests.

Note: The Debug toolbar is not displayed when you open QuickTest for the first time. You can display the Debug toolbar by choosing View > Toolbars > Debug. Note that this tutorial does not describe how to debug a test. For additional information, refer to the QuickTest Professional User's Guide.

Action toolbar, containing buttons and a list of actions, enabling you to view the details of an individual action or the entire test flow.

Note: The Action toolbar is not displayed when you open QuickTest for the first time. You can display the Action toolbar by choosing View > Toolbars > Action. If you insert a reusable or external action in a test, the Action toolbar is displayed automatically. For additional information, refer to the QuickTest Professional User's Guide.



Test pane, containing two tabs to view your test-the Tree View and the Expert View

Test Details pane, containing the Active Screen

Data Table, containing two tabs, Global and Action, to assist you in parameterizing your test

Debug Viewer pane, containing three tabs to assist you in debugging your test-Watch Expressions, Variables, and Command. (The Debug Viewer pane can be opened only when a test run pauses at a breakpoint.)
