Explain the Keyword View.
A Keyword View enables tests and components to be created, viewed, and debugged using a keyword-driven, modular, table format. QuickTest automatically modifies the columns and options in the Keyword View to suit the specific needs of the document type (test or component) on which you are currently working.
Explain Keyword View steps.
A step represents an operation to be performed. QuickTest provides keywords that help you define steps quickly and easily.
Explain the Comment field row.
Enables you to add manual steps to business components, even before your application is ready to be tested, as well as enter pertinent information about component steps.
Explain the Documentation Only view.
Enables you to instruct QuickTest Professional to display only the Documentation column of the Keyword View, including any comments. This is especially useful for viewing and printing components for use in manual testing.
Explain Multiple application areas.
QuickTest enables you to create and use multiple application areas, which can be used for various parts of your application. Application areas (formerly known as business component templates) specify the settings and resources to be used by one or more business components. Each business component can be associated with a specific application area, or share an application area with other business components.
Explain Local parameter type.
Enables you to create a parameter that is accessible only to the current business component. This is especially useful if you want to use an output parameter for one step as an input parameter for a later step in the same component.
Explain Function Definition Generator.
Enables you to quickly document and register new user-defined functions. Registered functions are now added automatically to the Keyword View. You can easily add a description and auto-documentation line using the new Function Definition Generator. Adding user-defined functions provides access to a variety of additional operations for a component, for example, open an application at the start of a business component or check the value of a specific property.
Explain Business Component (or Component.
An easily-maintained, reusable unit comprising one or more steps that perform a specific task. Business components may require input values from an external source or from other components, and they can return output values to other components.
Business Process Test
A scenario comprising a serial flow of business components, designed to test a specific business process of an application.
Component Input Parameters
Variable values that a business component can receive and use as the values for specific, parameterized steps in the component. A component parameter may be accessed by any component in the Quality Center project.
Component Output Parameters
Values that a business component can return. These values can be viewed in the business process test results and can also be used as input for a component that is used later in the test. A component parameter may be accessed by any component in the Quality Center project.
Local Input Parameters
Variable values that an operation or a business component step can receive and use as the values for specific, parameterized steps in the component. A local parameter can only be accessed by the component in which it defined.
Local Output Parameters
Values that an operation or a business component step can return. These values can be viewed in the business process test results and can also be used as input for a later step in the component. A local parameter can only be accessed by the component in which it defined.
QuickTest Engineer
An expert in QuickTest Professional automated testing. The QuickTest Engineer defines and manages the resources that are needed to create and work with business components. The QuickTest Engineer creates application areas that specify all of the resources and settings needed to enable Subect Matter Experts to create business components and business process tests in Quality Center. The QuickTest Engineer can create and modify function library files (such as VBScript library files), and populate the shared object repository with test objects that represent the different objects in the application being tested. The QuickTest Engineer can also create and debug business components in QuickTest.
Roles
The various types of users who are involved in Business Process Testing.
Subject Matter Expert
A person who has specific knowledge of the application logic, a high-level understanding of the entire system, and a detailed understanding of the individual elements and tasks that are fundamental to the application being tested. The Subject Matter Expert uses Quality Center to create business components and business process tests.
