It provides a quick and simple means to create the minute programs that verify pieces of your application. Of course, the degree of success for this technique depends upon the complexity of the application you are testing. The more complex your application becomes for example, using third-party controls, multiple tiers of communication, and so on , the less successful a record-and-playback approach becomes. This chapter is meant to serve as a next step to simply recording and playing back scripts. It serves as a basis for you to build core test automation skills. Subsequent chapters expound on some of the topics found in this chapter.

Many manuals on the market today are geared toward developers, and none exist for Rational Functional Tester. This is one of the first manuals geared toward the Automated Test Engineer acknowledging the depth of knowledge required for a very complex job.
The manual will assist all levels of test engineering with very specific steps and hands-on advice. Novices and skilled practitioners alike should find the work a good read and a solid reference. Automating functional testing tends to receive less investment than it should, to the detriment of organizations everywhere.
If the reader is seeking to improve his knowledge of Rational Functional Tester and make an impact using that knowledge, there is no better reference than this excellent distillation of years of field-proven experience. Everyone from beginners to advanced users will find this book very helpful. The book is well organized, thought through, and has all the latest information. The authors are no doubt subject matter experts. However, to achieve the full benefits of automated testing, teams need a deep understanding of both its principles and their testing tools.
Eight leading IBM testing experts thoroughly introduce this state-of-the-art product, covering issues ranging from building test environments through executing the most complex and powerful tests.
Drawing on decades of experience with IBM Rational testing products, they address both technical and nontechnical challenges and present everything from best practices to reusable code.
Overview[ edit ] Rational Functional Tester is a software test automation tool used by quality assurance teams to perform automated regression testing. The recording mechanism creates a test script from the actions. The test script is produced as either a Java or Visual Basic. Testers can edit the script using standard commands and syntax of these languages, or by acting against the screen shots in the storyboard. Test scripts can then be executed by Rational Functional Tester to validate application functionality.
