Earlier today was Day 1 of a 5-day Basic QTP Training that I’m attending at work. Putting my notes here just in case I have to relearn or I have to echo the training. So initially, we did some setup (see details below), and then there was a demo where a manual test case was automated (will post this separately).
Install HP QuickTest Professional
This involved an installer that was nearly 4GB in size. The setup with the wizard was pretty straightforward. After installing, additional configuration included specifying the license and going to Tools -> Options to modify the Run settings such that the “Allow other HP products to run tests and components” checkbox is marked. This is probably since we’re integrating with HP ALM.
Set up ALM integration
QTP can manage to work on its own, but since we plan to be working with ALM for storing and managing the tests we had to install the following items:
- ALM Explorer (ALMExplorerAddIn.msi, alternative to viewing ALM in IE)
- HP Quality Center Connectivity (TDConnect.exe, an ALM add-in)
- QTP for Business Process Testing (Quick-Test_Add-in_for_ALM-QC.msi)
