QF-Test generally features easy to use capture/replay for effective recording of test cases for Java based (Swing, SWT, Eclipse plug-ins and RCP, ULC, Web Start, applets) and web-based applications (HTML, AJAX, GWT, RAP, Qooxdoo, Richfaces, ExtJs and ExtGwt). Advanced options like structuring and modularization strongly increase the reusability of system tests and thus reduce the maintenance effort. Expert functions like scripting in Jython or Groovy allows powerful under-the-surface access. QF-Test is ideal for the automation of functional regression and load testing.
