Hi Joe,
I am novice in QTP automation of Oracle. I have a requirement for QTP 11 automation of Oracle ERP and forms on Windows 7. After going through the PAM from HP for QTP 11; I understand Oracle addin is supported only on IE 6 and 7. Although I have IE 8 with me. So do I need to downgrade my IE or uninstall IE 8 and install 7 or is there any patch for support on IE 8?

Thanks
Sudit

    Sudit M » Hi Sudit,

    This is what I found:

    1) QuickTest Professional (any version) does not have special support for SharePoint controls (any version). Two things you could try:

    Some alternatives to improve automation against such controls are:
    Modifications to QTP’s event configuration, users can record and replay against the controls.
    Unzip the unsupported HP file ServiceWareMercury_28532_CPT28531_zip.zip
    file to a location of your choice.
    Copy the sharepoint.xml file to a location, such as a network drive, which is accessible by all machines that will be used to record and replay against the SharePoint controls.
    Go to Tools -> Web Event Recording Configuration.
    Click .
    Go to File -> Load Configuration.
    Navigate to the location in step 2 and select the sharepoint.xml file. CPT28531.zip
    Click . The Web Event Recording Configuration will be updated.
    Note: This file instructs QuickTest Professional to record against

    objects when an onmousedown event occurs.
    Click to close the Custom Web Event Recording Configuration dialog.
    Go to Tools -> Options.
    Select the Web tab.
    Click .
    Set the “Record MouseDown and MouseUp as Click” option. See the attached screenshot.
    Click .
    This should enable record and replay support for most instances where these controls are used. End-users may have to make some special modifications for some actions.

    Implement Web Extensibility toolkit. This consist on users creating and generation customized support for controls, such as indicating a group of objects as one, implementing custom methods to be recored and replayed to a particular control, etc.

    For Flex

    Support for Adobe (Macromedia) Flex applications is handled by Adobe. Adobe has released Flex Builder 3.0; this release includes the QuickTest Professional Flex add-in. The add-in was developed using QuickTest Professional’s Test Extensibility Architecture functionality. The Flex add-in is developed and owned by Adobe.
    Hewlett Packard does not support the Adobe Flex add-in, therefore we strongly suggest contacting Adobe (http://www.adobe.com) to see about availability, support details, and pricing.
    Adobe is providing the add-in via an automation package that is shipped with Flex Builder 3 Professional. Basic information on the automation package with QuickTest Professional integration is here:
    http://www.adobe.com/support/documentation/en/flex/3/releasenotes_flex3_fb.html
    http://www.adobe.com/products/flex/upgrade/
    Users can download the automation package with QuickTest Professional integration here: http://www.adobe.com/cfusion/tdrc/index.cfm?product=flex
    A specific Adobe license is required and needs to be requested from Adobe. No specific Flex license is required on the QuickTest Professional side.
