Know the utilities and tools available in QTP
Tools Menu of QTP contains the following utilities and tools which are helpful in the testing process:
# Action Conversion Tool: Enables us to convert test actions that were created using QTP to scripted components for use in business process testing.
# Additional Installation Requirements: Opens the Additional Installation Requirements dialog box, which displays any prerequisite software that we must install or configure to work with QTP.
# Business Component Upgrade Tool: Opens the Business Component Upgrade Tool. If we are connected to a Quality Center project, this tool enables us to upgrade all of the business components in a Quality Center project, from an earlier component version to the format required by the current version.
# HP Micro Player: Opens the HP Micro Player, which enables us to view captured movies of a run session without opening QuickTest.
# License Validation Utility: Opens the License Validation utility, which enables us to retrieve and validate license information.
# Password Encoder: Opens the Password Encoder dialog box, which enables us to encode passwords. We can use the resulting strings as method arguments or Data Table parameter values (tests only).
# QTP Script Editor: Opens the QTP Script Editor, which enables us to open and modify the scripts of multiple tests and function libraries, simultaneously.
# Register New Browser Control: Opens the Register Browser Control Utility, which enables us to register our browser control application so that QTP recognizes our Web object when recording or running tests.
# Remote Agent: Activates the QuickTest Remote Agent, which enables us to configure how QTP behaves when a test is run by a remote application such as Quality Center.
# Save and Restore Settings: Opens the Save and Restore Settings dialog box, which enables us to save our existing configurations before uninstalling an old version, and then restore them after installing a new version.
# Silent Test Runner: Opens the Silent Test Runner dialog box, which enables us to run a QTP test the way it is run from LoadRunner and Business Availability Center.
# Test Batch Runner: Opens the Test Batch Runner dialog box, which enables us to set up QTP to run several tests in succession.
