This tutorial is meant as a hands-on introduction to QF-Test.

In the base parts 1 and 2 we will show the main functions of QF-Test and guide you through the necessary steps to set up your own test-suite. You will learn how to analyse your test results, step through your test by use of the debugger and generate an overview report. Further topics are the concept of modularization by help of procedures and component recognition, which is of central meaning in GUI Testing.

Dependent on whether your system under test is based on Java or Web you can decide to work through part 1 or 2 or both if needed.

Part 3 leads to some more advanced QF-Test features like data driven testing, ensuring of test-case prerequisites and automatic generation of basic procedures.

Working through the basic tutorial should take you 4.5 up to 6.5 hours, dependent on your previous knowledge. The estimated duration for each chapter is indicated at its beginning.

As this tutorial will grow along with QF-Test with new examples being added as new features become available, chapters are written to work independently of each other. So you can always come back and work through some new chapters without having to go through the previous ones.

This tutorial is also available as HTML online version at http://www.qfs.de/en/qftest/tutorial.html.

As an alternative to private study, QFS offers training courses for QF-Test. Details can be found at http://www.qfs.de/en/qftest/training.html.


In order to make this tutorial more useful we need your help. It is always hard for the developer of a product to guess which features are important to the users; which of them are easy to understand and use and which remain a mystery. That is why we want to encourage you to give us feedback about what you would like to see in this tutorial. Of course we would also like to hear about any problems you have, either because the examples don't work for you or because you find them missing the point or whatever. In the end it is your feedback that determines the quality of this tutorial. Please send all comments, bug reports, wishes etc. to qftest@qfs.de.
