"Test Complete - Easy to Use and Feature Rich"

What do you like best?

I love how you can screen capture to create scripts but then simply modify the commands that are created for these screen captures to customize your scripts. I love how easy it is to debug scripts that fail in the Keyword Test Log by matching the expected and Actual images, and by clicking on an error in the log and having it take you to the line in the script where the error occurred.

I also like how TestComplete organizes your scripts and makes it easy to run test suites of scripts. This has been in invaluable tool and reducing the amount of manual time I have to spend on regression testing and freeing up time to do new development testing.

What do you dislike?

So far, there isn't anything about Test Complete that I don't like. The handful of issues I've encountered have been quickly and effectively remedied by their knowledgeable support staff. The only real issue is that the free training sessions they provide could be a little more low level and detailed

Recommendations to others considering the product

We evaluated a lot of Automation software packages, but Test Complete is the one that made sense from the beginning. Each time we spoke to representatives from other automation companies, we kept going asking the same question. Is this as good as TestComplete? The answer was always a resounding 'No'

TestComplete was the standard we used to judge other Automation software, so it only made sense that this was the package we chose. Each day I use it, I'm reminded how we made the right choice.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I've been primarily focused on testing a POS using TestComplete and have been able to reduce the amount of time I have to run hands on regression testing. The automation tool is so robust that it even exposed a flaw in the amount of load the POS can handle.

"Reliable experience with TestComplete for more than 5 years."

What do you like best?

It is easy to learn TestComplete. The keyword scripts are there to help you start. Once you become more advanced you can develop smarter tests by writing code. There is an extensive documentation online, if you are still lost, SmartBear support is quick to resolve your issues. Equally important also is code reuse, we have created standalone libraries which we can reference in any new TestComplete project. Reliability is an important factor, with TestComplete running your tests again holds no surprises for you.

What do you dislike?

We sometimes encounter issues setting up a new environment on a new machine. We contact support when we can't resolve it on our own.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Create reusable libraries. Separate the code to map UI controls from the rest of your code, this way major UI changes will only affect a small portion of your code.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

TestComplete solved the high-cost problem of regression testing! We have reduced regression time from days to hours. After using we discovered that adding new tests is quick and easy. Also, mapping interface objects by code will not break after interface changes, if written properly.

"TestComplete - Powerful software and good user experience"

What do you like best?

The possibility to reference each graphical control by it's name using the "Object browser" tool is really interesting. Even if the control's size, color or the X Y coordinates change between versions of your target application, TestEcomplete find it every time and that makes my scripts very reliable.

The possibility to write your scripts in Keyword (for basic users) or in VBScripts for advanced users make this tool very powerful, anyone can create his script and become operational really fast whatever his knowledge. More you can use both Keyword and VBScripts methods in the same project !

What do you dislike?

If I should say something negative about TestComplete it's the fact that you cannot edit your KeyWord outside TestComplete. When you run a test through TestExecute, if you need to adjust something in your scripts, you can if you are using VBScript but if you need to adjust something in a KeyWord you have to use TestComplete. Both tools doesn't use the same kind of licenses and sometimes this is annoying for us.

TestComplete benefits ? simple, easy to use, and powerful !

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This tool allowed us to automatize several time-consuming test cases. These tests cases are now launched at the end of the day, running during the night, and we review the result the day after, this is time saving for us.

Another benefit of TestComplete is the consistency and the regularity of the results. Indeed a test performed by tester several times can generate leads to different results. A tester can skip some steps, be deconcentrated, TestComplete is a guaranty that our tests are done following the same way every times

"TestComplete helps you get where you need to be"

What do you like best?

We are a small group, so when SmartBear hosts a free training webinar, we are all over it. It is the small, bonus added things like this that make TestComplete what it is. TestComplete makes it easy for those with programming knowledge to write scripting tests, but at the same time allows users with no programming knowledge to use the on-screen recording. TestComplete is one of the best automated testing options on the market today and versatile yet easy enough to use right out of the box.

What do you dislike?

Being a small group, learning the tool is not particularly easy. Watching the video tutorials and going through the practice exercises doesn't always carryover into the production side of things.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would highly recommend TestComplete to anyone who is looking for automated testing. In my opinion, TestComplete is one of the best automated testing options on the market today and versatile yet easy enough to use right out of the box.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Trying to implement more and better testing practices in our company is what we are trying to solve with TestComplete.

"TestComplete: User for 8+ years"

What do you like best?

For what TestComplete can do, the ObjectSpy tool, keeping up with technology, cost, support, and the ease of use are a few on the many pluses to this test tool. I come across very few items that TestComplete cannot automate. And if blocked, the TtestComplete forum of users usually have a solution as well as the SmartBear Support team. TestComplete has been recently been improved and stabilized more for the testing community. I love the new functionality and changes presented as well as those I see in the request queue for future releases. The help documentation is fantastic as well.

What do you dislike?

I would like to see a way to get individual test logs from a group run. An optional to turn this on/off would be great. I have very few complaints to present here.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Do your research, trial the tools, ask questions, review supported OS, browsers , tech. covered.

i.e.

MS Visual is a Dev. tool trying to be used as a testing tool. - high level of coding required

Scripting in TestComplete (which has a variety of chooses) is easier to learn and script out.

Other tools (open source or not) support, be kept updated, and costs are big issues of concern

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use TestComplete across many products that are architectured in different ways.

UI testing, service testing, and distributed testing with TeamCity.

Windows-bases and Browser based applications - TestComplete is great !

"Excellent tool with tremendous flexibility"

What do you like best?

TestComplete is well-organized and presented, and very accessible. It allows tests to be written in several languages and written as keyword tests which require no coding. The object repository is extremely flexible and powerful yet easy to use. Distributed testing is powerful and inexpensive to implement with the TestExecute add-on or use of CrossBrowserTesting add-on feature. Build or buy? My choice is buy when there's a tool like TestComplete available at a reasonable cost.

What do you dislike?

There are occasions when writing tests when TestComplete seems to lose it's "handle" on some objects and can't recognize them until TestComplete is restarted -- I haven't seen this when running tests, only occasionally during the development process. Also, the Python editor is very capable, but also rather slow, especially when trying to step through code while debugging.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Get comfortable with the object repository. It is more powerful, flexible, and maintainable than coded object recognition. Also, spend the money for at least one floating license -- it will serve you well when trying to troubleshoot failing scripts on different environments.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our cybersecurity product is very broad and very deep, employing a web application, a server application, and headless agents on each workstation. TestComplete allows us to test each of these from within the same tests including communication dependencies between the web app and server as well as the agent and server. With every build thru Jenkins, it runs through an automated smoke test to ensure basic functionality is still working. We also use full regression tests weekly, and more often nearing customer releases.
