In this video I cover HP's Business Process Testing. Business Process Testing, also know as BPT, is comprised of a number of components, and these components are the building blocks of a test. Components are reusable actions or modules that perform a specific task(s) in an application.
In my application, I have actions like login, logout, new appointment, and a new registration. All of these would be considered “components.”
A new business process test would involve taking these components and stringing them together to create the functionality needed for a test.
All this is done within Quality Center.
Build once use many times
Due to their reusability, the same components can be used in multiple business process tests.
In a nutshell
In a nutshell, BPT is just a fancy UI wrapper for QTP that makes it easy for non-technical people to work with automated tests within Quality Center
without having any particular knowledge of QTP or coding.
