Hello Gokul,

data driven testing is supported directly by QF-Test as explained in
manual chapter 14:


Whether you want to use additional test management or test execution
or continuous integration frameworks is up to you and your company's

For a list of tools for which an explicit integration exists, please
see manual chapters 19 and 20:



Best regards,

>> .STAFProc is the process that runs on a machine, called a STAF Client, which accepts requests and
>> routes them to the appropriate service. These requests may come from the local machine or from
>> another STAF Client on a remote machine. Thus, STAF works in a peer environment.
>> .STAX is an execution engine for STAF which can help you thoroughly automate the distribution,
>> execution, and results analysis of your testcases.
>> .STAX provides support for parallel execution, user-defined granularity of execution control,
>> support for nested testcases, the ability to control the length of execution time, and the ability
>> to monitor STAX jobs.
