QTP Glitches So Far...

Well, I have started work on QTP after having worked on couple of functional test automation tools like – Selenium and Test Complete.
My first impression with QTP has not been very positive; herein I have listed few glitches I experienced so (I can only hope this list not overgrowing with time)
  • No Refactor of code – so if u modify a function name in one place it has to be updated manually in all function calls
  • “General Run Error” – try to check a check box which is disabled and you receive “General Run Error”! Can’t it say object is disable
There have been other mysteriously intermittent instances of “General Run Error” about whom I am still groping in dark
  • If used ExecuteFile to get function definition in Action then there is no way to jump to function definition from action. Function has to be opened manually. (I don’t associate function library as it is going to hardcode path to function)
  • While running QTP tests on a System it can not be used for any other task, QTP keeps bringing browser to top on which tests are executed
  • QTP on locked system, File Upload just does not work on locked system
  • Keep shared repo opened while executing test and be ready for unknown errors
  • Unable to test API on fly (It is Test Complete feature I love most), so if you want to check Web Table data – GetCellData(row, column)
Then you should execute it in test and there is no way to tests it from Object Spy itself
  • Some time have static screen while executing test and I keep waiting for next action, good if there were Test Complete sort of display during test execution
SO FAR………….
