Yes. QF-Test offers flexible integration with other tools. It uses XML as primary data format and offers multiple interfaces: batch execution via command line, daemon mode, scripting, REST, and XML reporting. This enables integrations in the following areas:
More than 1,400 companies in over 60 countries rely on QF-Test. More than 8,500 licenses are in use from small companies up to the largest IT service providers.
Selenium enables developers to quickly create tests. However, once the test scope gets more complicated, you want to keep tests comfortably maintainable, and non-developers should work on the team, then we recommend migrating to QF-Test.
QF-Test relies on the Chrome DevTools Protocol (CDP) and the WebDriver standard – just like Selenium – to drive modern browsers. It is also possible to integrate existing Junit-based Selenium tests directly in a QF-Test suite.
QF-Test offers many features that go above those offered by Selenium, like easy and stable component addressing, implicit synchronization, and intuitive handling of reactive frameworks.
The price of QF-Test in comparison to Selenium should only be a small factor in your overall test project costs. Since the main factor is manpower, effectively implementing and maintaining tests should be the deciding factor. And with QF-Test, maintenance, support, continued development, and bug fixes are already included.
Though indispensable, unit tests can only test small parts of a system in isolation ("steering wheel OK, motor OK").
Automated software testing reduces the time and money spent on quality assurance.
Thanks to the great usablity of QF-Test, testers can get off the ground quickly and efficiently. Combined with the low licensing fees, you can expect a quick return on investment.
