Well I awaited a few months for this book, it arrived just before Santa! If you do not wish to pay for the courses available, then this book is by far the cheaper alternative.

It is well put together and easy to follow for beginners in the RFT automation field of software testing. There are good chapters dedicated to building support for new objects and managing script execution. For a novice like myself, this book contained great insight to assist furthering my understanding of the tool.

It also delivered in a clear and at a simple level. I found it easy to read, with good descriptions and explanations. Albeit some of the areas that are being described are not easy concepts.

There is also good appendix on regular expressions and logging techniques. It would have been nice to have had a story board project other than the classicjava. Code snippets are provided both in VB. Net and Java albeit on paper you can get the download version. On the whole I am impressed with the book and it has assisted my testing and I continually go back to it for reference.

It allows users to create tests that mimic the actions and assessments of a human tester. Rational Functional Tester is a software test automation tool used by quality assurance teams to perform automated regression testing. Testers create scripts by using a test recorder which captures a user's actions against their application under test. The recording mechanism creates a test script from the actions. The test script is produced as either a Java or Visual Basic. Testers can edit the script using standard commands and syntax of these languages, or by acting against the screen shots in the storyboard.
