Course Structure

The following courses are recommended to be taken together to get an in-depth understanding of the Unified Functional Testing (GUI) product:

  • UFT150 : Introduction to Automation using HP UFT (GUI)
  • UFT250 : Advanced Automation using HP UFT (GUI)
 

UFT150: Introduction to Automation using HP UFT (GUI)

This core course provides a comprehensive understanding of HP’s Automated Functional Testing tool. Students will use the point and click interface to record and play back tests, add synchronization points and verification steps, and create multiple action tests. Once tests are created, students will discover and correct common record and play back problems. All topics include hands-on exercises.

At the end of this course, students will be able to:

  • Understand what tests to automate
  • Create basic automated scripts
  • Add synchronization to ensure successful replay of scripts
  • Work with objects and understand how to use the various tools available to manage objects
  • Insert checkpoints for verifying the expected results in the test case
  • Data drive the scripts using parameters and data files
  • Modularize scripts to make them re-usable
  • Handle applications that use custom objects that cannot be recorded by standard methods
 

UFT250: Advanced Automation using HP UFT (GUI)

This course builds on all the topics learned in the UFT150 course. In this course students will learn advanced techniques used for enhancing the existing automation scripts. The course will cover topics like the script view, VBScript, Creating functions and Modularizing that will help in making scripts re-usable and more maintainable. All topics include hands-on exercises.

At the end of this course, students should be able to:

  • Work in the Expert View
  • Add VBScript code to enhance script functionality
  • Do advanced manipulation of run time objects 
  • Creating custom functions and using function libraries
  • Use programmatic descriptions to work with objects
  • Using external data sources like excel files to input data into script
  • Create recovery scenarios using built in wizard and custom functions
  • Build automation frameworks to optimize the automation effort
  • Use test management tools like Quality Center and leverage the version control capabilities
