UFT 14.03

I am sure, by now you are already aware of the another version of UFT. HPE has released another upgrade of UFT 12.54 to UFT 14.0. with this release of UFT, HPE has continued to improvise it with full of features to accommodate current test automation need and trends. There are couple of new addition to UFT feature list along with upgrades and adjustments to the existing functionalities, but the main attraction would be the new licensing and three different editions.


What’s New in UFT 14.0                                 

UFT Editions

UFT has now three different editions

LeanFT is now UFT Pro, I think HPE decided to make this change to be called as UFT for a better branding. This version continues to provide the strength for angular automated solution, continuous testing and integration, cross browser support etc.
UFT Enterprise include UFT and UFT Pro, the same bundle option which we used to get for 12.54(UFT +LeanFT). Sprinter is the new addition(FREE!) to this bundle to provide efficient manual functional testing.

UFT Ulitmate is filled with different arsenal by looking at the current testing and automation needs, which makes is the ultimate and expensive package. It include UFT Pro and UFT Enterprise along with Sprinter, Business Process Testing, Mobile Center

Is there an impact with this update?

With UFT 14, HPE has introduced a new licensing mechanism based on Device ID, but it has kept he backward compatibility. If you already have an existing license you will be able to have it working.


Upgrading to UFT 14

you can directly upgrade to UFT 14, if you are on version 11.5 or later, otherwise, uninstall and install the new version. You might need to upgrade your license as well based on your current version.
