I would like to see an improvement in the user interface. UI looks to be more trendy and attractive . I am looking forward to API testing and mobile testing with Snapshot technology allowing drag and drop capabilities that are similar to Windows and the web.

Limitations are found to be primarily in the ux of the tool; for example when in doubt one often right clicks in an unfamiliar product to get unstuck, and AscentialTest lacks some of these fineries. Having to double click on certain fields in order to get into edit mode is a bit non-standard, and again some care needs to be put into the ux so that the user does not get stuck. The Elements Tree should be searchable, with hits when the control is Clipped, Hidden etc. The otherwise fine online Help lacks a “See Also” section. These are growing pains and being addressed.

Classes are not as object-oriented as I would like, but I am a programmer and not QA so I expect a lot. The interface has a lot of features and took a while for me to master, although I have to say transferring that to my part-time programmers has been very easy.

We have a desktop software solution written in PowerBuilder. We have limited personnel available and need to automate as much testing as we can.

The most valuable feature of AscentialTest for us is that it fully supports PowerBuilder.

It’s been really easy to automate the same application TestComplete struggled with. I have been able to automate two of our key applications in just a few months. I haven’t even taken their training.
