I have been working in a small company as a manual tester. I want to be an automated engineer so want to learn automation testing. I don't know have much idea about the tools that are used in good companies. Please help me guys. What should i learn?
@Kaustubh Katdare • 28 Jan, 2013 QTP was earlier known as WinRunner; and it's a tool that's been around for several years. Selenium, on the other hand is newer and is finding rapid adoption in testing domain. If I'm not mistaken, Selenium, though very powerful, is limited to testing of browser based applications.

QTP on the other hand is mostly suitable for the desktop based applications. If I were to choose between the two; I'd probably pick Selenium because the world's already onto all things 'web'.

But that said, a mix of both the tools would be a killer combination for an aspiring engineer. Selenium is very easy to master if you've used any automation tool before.

I'd recommend learning both the tools; but first check with your company which tool they're using so that you can quickly apply your knowledge to the real world projects. Selenium is free for download while QTP licenses costs a LOT!

English-Scared and crazyboy might be able to guide you properly on this.

Selenium is open source and free . Current version 2.0 with web driver is very good and easy to implement and truly customizable and multiple browser support but one need to know java stuffs.
While QTP inbuilt recorder is good one , at least currently better than selenium one.QTP only works on windows
Check this qtp vs selenium

I am new to selenium and going to do project to implement selenium for TDD .
If anyone here a selenium master, please help me to gear-up with WebDriver.

*pushkar* : If you are going with selenium please let me know, we can help each other. 😀
@Saandeep Sreerambatla • 29 Jan, 2013 • 1 like Selenium is an excellent tool for webbased testing. If you are testing anything other technology windows, delphi , etc etc still the best available is QTP.

If you have any questions in learning either of the tools let us know in this thread. I will help you.
@*pushkar* • 29 Jan, 2013 Don't have any idea. One of my friends is learning QTP from a coaching institute. He was suggesting me for the same. He said that QTP works for both web & windows but selenium works for web applications only. He said that good/top companies prefer QTP because of its good features.
@Saandeep Sreerambatla • 29 Jan, 2013 Now everyone is moving towards selenium for web applications. I doubt there is a good training for selenium. QTP learn basics in any institute and practice.

How will you start with it? Are you going to learn it by yourself or by coaching?

@Saandeep Sreerambatla • 30 Jan, 2013 • 1 like You can learn Selenium and QTP without any coaching.

For QTP - Get your basics ready with VBScript.
Email me if you really are interested in learning, I have a step by step learning PPT which I usually present to my batches while training at office.
Or else, you can also get lot of things online. (The PPT I made is bits and pieces from several sources and something added by myself)
Record some script
Analyse how it is recorded.
Use your logic to customize it.

You are done.

Then start learning features of QTP. Before learning any features you have to understand how QTP works so the first exercise will make you understand some part of it.

For Selenium:

You can follow the same procedure, but I dont have a exhaustive presentation as I am learning the tool now. I can help you with it for any questions.

Nice link. I have started downloading all videos from the office. I'll check them & try to learn selenium at home.
Thanks. How did you find those videos? Are they good to learn?

@Saandeep Sreerambatla • 30 Jan, 2013 Great!! I have checked the website its a wonderful site for learning selenium.
@Anil Jain • 30 Jan, 2013 • 1 like I will tell you one very basic difference and then you can make a choice yourself which toll you are going to select

QTP is highly regarded as functional testing tool for web based applictions, and now is spreading its wing in other areas. Less coding skill (VBS) and more tool knowledge and basic automation concepts are required for QTP. QTP has a better market value then any other automation tool

On the other hand, lately selenium is also becoming very popular. Good coding skill is required, so a person with moderate to good coding skill and less tool knowledge has also good future. Market value is still relatively lesser then QTP

So, you need to evaluate yourself how good you are in coding skills?

@Anoop Kumar • 31 Jan, 2013 English-Scared :
Have you worked with Selenium IDE?
I am facing trouble with recording events my project otherwise IDE working fine on either localhost or www.

Edit:
Also, when I am coding manually and running from eclipse its working but firefox IDE not recording anything.
@Saandeep Sreerambatla • 01 Feb, 2013 I tried recording , it recorded well. I havent faced any issue while recording.

If you are using old IDE then make sure that the language is set to default while recording.
@Madhu Achanti • 09 May, 2013 Hi - could you please share QTP material to me. THanks!

Apologies I am replying very late for this thread,

Apple of orange which fruit is better?
Audi or BMW which car is better?

so these are the questions no one would like to answer till you specify your requirements. QTP is established player (very costly as well, with good support) in the software automation market as functional automation tool. So if cost is not a constraint, QTP is one of the strong contender for functional automation.

Also Selenium is free so its good to consider when cost is constraint.

Yes ,that's right...But now a days many clients are switching from QTP to selenium...So combination of both will do a great job.I don't know about QTP but as a developer I have learnt Selenium for addition and to debug my code in extra time. Its very easy to grasp the things.
@Mayank Sapra • 13 Nov, 2015 Can you please share the download link of selenium tutorials as I am unable to find them on CE.com ?
