H P Data Sheet

  1. 1. HP QuickTest Professional software Data sheet HP QuickTest Professional software is advanced, automated testing software for building functional and regression test suites. It captures, verifies, and replays user interactions automatically and helps testers quickly identify and report on application effects, while providing advanced functionality for tester collaboration. Simplify test creation and maintenance. With HP QuickTest Professional, your quality assurance (QA) organization can: HP QuickTest Professional software provides functional and regression test automation for major software • Empower the entire team to create sophisticated test applications and environments, including next-gener- suites with less training. ation development technologies, such as Windows® • Establish correct functionality across all environments, Presentation Foundation, Web services, Macromedia data sets, and business processes.
