What is QTP ?

QTP–> stands for Quick Test Professional.It is an automated graphical user interface functional and regression testing tool which allows the automation of web based and client based computer applications running on Microsoft Windows.

It uses VBScript as it’s scripting language, but VBScript supports classes but not polymorphism and inheritance.Different Add-ins are available for custom testing.QTP does not support Java  appln.. unless Java add-in is installed.
QTP is usually used for “UI Based” Test Case Automation, it can automate some “Non-UI” based Test Cases. (e.g. API (Certification testing), Database Testing, etc.)
QTP is an advanced version of Winrunner,hence it works together with Winrunner and Quality center.
Limitations:It cannot be used on non-window based application,since it fetches object like Activex from Windows Appllication,and Remote desktop connection is not possible due to licensing issue.
