Re: [QF-Test] QFS Framework required

Hello Gokul,

QF-Test is geared towards GUI test automation, it doesn't try to
replace test management or test execution frameworks, but rather to
integrate with those.

I don't know of any existing integration of QF-Test with STAF/STAX,
which is indeed a very powerful framework for distributed execution,
but if you've got STAF set up, QF-Test is just another tool to
call which is not a problem, thanks to its command line interface for
batch mode.

One thing to look out for on Windows is how to run the STAFProc
service so that the SUT can run in a real user session. This is
similar to the problems faced with Hudson/Jenkins and other build and
execution tools. Further explanations are provided in our FAQ #14:

Best regards,
