Featured Review
Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The most valuable features of Eggplant Digital Automation Intelligence are bug hunting and OCR technology.""Its scalability is good. It is useful for desktop applications, and it also uses OCR and does image recognition.""The main feature of Eggplant Test is that it can do fully automated web testing and app testing.""We are able to now automate tests, which so far have been manual.""GUI testing is the strength of the tool. The tool works as expected, and the support response from eggPlant, as a company, has been quick and substantial.""We did see a massive return on investment from using Eggplant.""The features that we like the most are the developer interface and the ability to quickly develop and deploy tests.""The solution is based on a Windows model, where adding users is just a few clicks. It is easy to manage users and add them."

"The most valuable feature for me is the number of protocols that can be tested. It not only tests Web, but also SAP, Siebel, .Net, and even pdf.""One aspect that I like about Micro Focus UFT Developer is the ability to integrate it into a testing framework as a library.""There are many good things. Like it is intuitive and scripting was easy. Plus the availability of experienced resources in India due to its market leadership.""The most valuable features are the object repository.""The most valuable feature of the solution is the number of plugins for object recognition. The predefined libraries allow us to automate tasks.""It's a complete pursuit and it's a logical pursuit working with HPE.""It is quite stable, and it has got very user-friendly features, which are important in terms of maintaining our scripts from a long-term perspective. It is very stable for desktop-based, UI-based, and mobile applications. Object repositories and other features are also quite good.""The most valuable feature is the Object Model, where you can directly pull up the object as a global or a local."

"The reporting function is a bit shallow. The solution does not offer very comprehensive reporting in terms of your test results. The reporting time and the logs are very high level as well. These areas need improvement.""Eggplant Digital Automation Intelligence could improve by lowering the price.""Its performance and stability could be better.""There was no free trial in it.""Eggplant Test should emphasize on improving its offering in non-Windows environments.""I would like to see standardized actions already built into Eggplant. For example, "wait eight seconds". That way, I wouldn't need to create it as an action. Right now, I have to program that wait and describe it as an action so that everybody knows it is an action that waits eight seconds... That way, somebody who is not familiar with programming processes like "if-else", or "for", or "while", would be able, from the first moment, and without programming, to put some easy-to-use, standardized, actions in place.""The IDE could be even more full-featured. Because I was a developer, I was very spoiled by either Visual Studio Code or Visual Studio for shortcuts. For example, I was able to say "ctor" and hit Tab and it would create a template of a constructor for me... It would be great, when I want to create a new function, if there were shortcut commands like those that helped create all of the functions, or if there were shortcut features to do any of the complex plans.""The language is too specific; it is just for Eggplant."

"With Smart Bear products generally, you can have only one instance of the tool running on a machine.""The product has shown no development over the past 10 or 15 years.""The pricing could be improved.""Integration with other tools can become a costly exercise.""We push one button and the tests are completely executed at once, so just have to analyze and say it's okay. It would be nice if this could be entirely automated.""It is unstable, expensive, inflexible, and has poor support.""The support for .NET Framework and Visual Studio in Micro Focus UFT Developer is currently limited. At present, only Visual Studio 2019 is supported, despite the release of a newer version (2022). Similarly, the tool only supports up to .NET Framework version 4.3.8, while there have been six newer versions released. This is an area that could be improved upon, particularly in the Windows environment.""Object definition and recognition need improvement, especially with calendar controls. I faced challenges with schedulers and calendars."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "It is scalable, but it is a matter of money in the pocket. You can scale it, but then you have to have additional licenses. The licensing approach of eggPlant is not the best."
  • "Make a smart decision about the number of developer- and execution-only licenses you purchase to maximize your budget. We found that going heavier on execution-only licenses has been a way to reduce our costs and maximize our ability to benefit from the software."
  • "End-to-end testing isn't possible for us because of the licensing problems. It's very expensive, so we only have two development/execution licenses."
  • "It probably has a yearly license."
  • "This solution is expensive when compared to the market. However, the reason it is more expensive is because of its stability, high performance, and for its support of any technology."
  • "Eggplant Test is a very expensive solution."
  • More Eggplant Test Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "It is quite expensive and is priced per seat or in concurrent (or floating) licenses over a period of months."
  • "The pricing is quite high compared to the competition."
  • "The cost of this solution is a little bit high and we are considering moving to another solution."
  • "When we compare in the market with other tools that have similar features, it may be a little bit extra, but the cost is ten times less."
  • "It is cheap, but if you take the enterprise license, it is valid for both software items."
  • "The licensing is very expensive, so often, we don't have enough VMs to run all of our tests."
  • "Its cost is a bit high. From the licensing perspective, I am using a concurrent license. It is not a seed license. It is something that I can use in our network. It can also be used by other users."
  • "The price of the solution could be lowered. The cost is approximately $25 per year for a subscription-based license."
