This short tutorial describes various steps required for setting up the RFT.
Use the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) which gets installed while loading
RFT and gets enabled for testing Java applications.Before starting recording of any script following steps are essential:
Step – 1: Setting up the logging options. RFT provides many logging options. Here we can use the HTML log.

b) In the left pane of the Preferences window, expand “Functional Test” > then “Playback” > click “Logging”.
c) Verify that the Use “Default” check box is selected and that html appears in the “Log type” field.
d) Click “OK”.
These setting of Step -1, shall open the HTML log automatically after playing back of a script.
Step – 2: Creation of a Functional Tester project
