i am 8+ years Exp.person in Both Manual and Automation Testing....For learning UFT tool i refer ur video and i accepted u has my Guru....

Thanks a lot....

Excellent Reddy Garu. Thanks! Muzaffar

Mr. Reddy... You mentioned that in 2002 Mercury Interactive Corporation purchased Astra Quick Test (AQT) and made some changes and released it as QTP.... This is NOT true... Astra Quick Test was always part of Mercury Interactive. It was developed from scratch by Mercury Interactive themselves... It (AQT) was primarily aimed at Web based companies (Small to medium) companies who could not afford WinRunner. AQT started out supporting ONLY Web based AUT.

Hope this was helpful
