How to Avoid Hard coding of Paths in QTP Tests

We should avoid hard coding of paths in tests as this adds to portability of test from one machine other.
Consider an action having following statement –
Execute File (D:\GSB\QTP\fucntion\test.vbs)
When tests are ported on a different machine then there is no guaranteed about drive mapping being same.
To over come this, we can read path run time instead of hard coding it; as following -



Make sure assignment of Global is first action as only then Run Time Env file would be available for usage.

  1. FYI: You can use Environment("varname"), you don't need the ".Value".
    Good work otherwise!

  2. How can we follow same practice in Selenium Automation Project?
    Example: System.setProperty("webdriver.chrome.driver",
    "D:/automation/myproject/src/chromedrivers/win7/chromedriver_2.exe"); or in pom.xml

Distributed Load Testing with JMeter

Distributed Testing with JMeter When one JMeter client is not able to offer amount of threads required for load testing then distributed testing is used. In distributed testing - One instance of JMeter client can control number of JMeter instances and collect data from them Test plan does not need to be copied to each server, the client sends it to all servers note - JMeter will run all the threads on all the servers, hence 100 threads on 5 JMeter server would pump 500 threads in total. If many server instances are used, the client JMeter can become overloaded and so the client network connection. This has been improved in latest versions of JMeter by switching to Stripped modes, but you should always check that your client is not overloaded When Client (master) and Server (slave) nodes are on same network (no SSH required) Configure Client Node Herein client is referred as the machine controlling test execution on other JMeter nodes. This is also referred

Verify email confirmation using Selenium

Note: If you are new to java and selenium then start with selenium java training videos .     Email confirmation seems to be integral part of any registration process.
