Overview

Today Mercury has two functional testing tools \u2013 WinRunner (WR) and QuickTest Professional (QTP). WinRunner has been around since about 1995 while QuickTest Pro has been available since about 2002. We have lots of companies asking us \u201cWhat\u2019s the difference between WinRunner and QuickTest Pro?\u201d and \u201cIf they are both functional testing tools from the same company, then which one of the tools should we use?\u201d This document was developed as a short simple reference in helping to understand the basics about the tools in order to answer these two questions.

Mercury\u2019s position on the two tools is this:
\u20221

The strategic direction for Mercury and its customers for Functional Testing is product integration. The new releases of QTP and WR improve already existing integration where customers can leverage complete WinRunner assets (scripts/functions) from QuickTest Pro without any modification to these assets.

\u20222
QuickTest Pro 8 has recently been released and WinRunner version 8.0 is
planned for November 2004. There are no plans to phase out WinRunner.
\u20223
QuickTest Pro remains Mercury\u2019s prime product for best customer

satisfaction and experience. For customers who need both products, Mercury continues to offer Mercury Functional Testing as a combined package of both product offerings. The Business Process Testing system will be extended to incorporate components designed in WinRunner for the WinRunner 8.0 release in November.

What We Recommend
QuickTest Pro is our functional testing tool of choice!
Most customers are in either of two situations:
\u20227
Existing WinRunner customers asking \u201cShould we switch to QuickTest Pro?\u201d
\u20228
New customers asking \u201cWhich should we get, WinRunner or QuickTest Pro?\u201d

We have been implementing Mercury\u2019s products since 1992 and have senior level expertise in WinRunner. We have been implementing WinRunner since the very first version of it. So like many existing WinRunner customers we have a huge knowledge investment in WinRunner ourselves. However we have worked on the Mercury development team on the QuickTest Pro 6.0 and 6.5 releases, and have solid real-world experience in implementing QuickTest Pro since the 6.0 release. We have found it to be a great tool to use and recommend it to all customers! Overall, we recommend using QuickTest Pro unless for some reason you have to use WinRunner due to an unsupported environment not existing in QuickTest Pro.

Overall, QuickTest Pro is easier to use and implement for both technical and non- technical testers in comparison to WinRunner. QTP offers many features that are found in WinRunner, but are easier to use. QTP also offers many features not found in WinRunner that make test script creation, enhancement and maintenance easier.
