More Eggplant Manager Pros →

"The database checkpoints detect problems which are difficult for a human resource to find.""Customer service and technical support responsiveness are high. Everyone is very professional.""In TestComplete, I saw a conformed package of a tool that kept everybody in consistency. The team was able to regenerate further tests without having to manipulate more code because the record feature is great.""The initial setup is pretty easy and it's quick to deploy.""The ease-of-use and quality of the overall product are above average.""It works very fine. It is fast on almost any machine, and it is also very well organized. I like its object mapping and its capability to find and interact with almost everything that exists on Windows.""The solution has a very nice interface.""When compared to other tools, it is very simple."

Cons
"The solution would crash from time to time.""They need to update the Linux. I think it's kind of an outdated Java Swing application."

More Eggplant Manager Cons →

"The licensing costs are a little bit high and should be reduced.""If that engine could better identify more XPaths automatically and make the process more flexible, that would be better.""Right now, when you buy the solution, you need to pay for one solution. You receive one set up and you install it and it's just in that one machine. It would be ideal if they could offer one subscription where you can connect to different machines with a group subscription.""During the distribution of our regression test cases, the control IDs are not always recognized correctly.""I didn't use it very heavily. One issue that I found was that there wasn't a quick way or a button to move Visual Basic scripts to TestComplete. We have a lot of such scripts in our organization, and it would be very useful to have some option to easily move these scripts. It is currently possible to convert these scripts to TestComplete, but it is not easy. I have to write some code, but everything is not available immediately.""There could be API interfaces with this tool.""To bring it up to a 10, I would be looking for the addition of some key functional API testing.""The test object repository needs to be improved. The hierarchy and the way we identify the objects in different applications, irrespective of technology, needs adjustments. The located and test objects are not as flexible compared to other commercial tools."

    Questions from the Community
    Top Answer: 
    We did see a massive return on investment from using Eggplant.
    Top Answer: 
    Eggplant is expensive. What makes it cheap for us is that in the company where I work, the more people that use it, the cheaper the licenses get. So it's kind of a deal in a way, the more you buy, the… more »
    Top Answer: 
    In terms of what could be improved, I would love to be able to take the font of the application that the team is working in and upload it or import it into Eggplant Functional, so that the OCR is more… more »
