What is functional testing?

Functional testing is about validating the functionality of the application under test. This validation is done by emulating business scenarios through the application’s user interface. In a functional test, all of the user interactions, user inputs, and application behavior are recorded, and then a robust test is generated. To verify that the application works as expected, you can automate the execution of the tests. Functional testing tools are available in four versions, depending on your needs.

What is Rational Functional Tester?

Rational Functional Tester helps you automate functional tests of HTML, Java, Windows, .NET, Mainframe, Visual Basic, Silverlight, Eclipse, SAP, Siebel, Flex, Ajax, Dojo, GEF, and PowerBuilder applications. You can record user actions to create simplified test scripts that are easy to understand.



Whether your team wants simple record and playback or the full benefits and power that Object Oriented Programming has to offer in Java or .NET, Rational Functional Tester provides the necessary adaptability. Rational Functional Tester can easily record reliable and robust scripts that can be played back to validate new builds of an application, and it also supports two scripting languages for advanced users – Java™ and VB.NET. Rational Functional Tester uses object-oriented technology to identify controls or objects by their internal properties and not by screen coordinates, and enables testing of any controls or objects in the application under test, including the control properties and data.



Rational Functional Tester also includes extensive verification point capabilities for both visible and invisible objects, and uses the patented ScriptAssure™ technology to control object-matching sensitivity during playback. RFT also provides efficient data-driven testing with the use of datapools and variables that can be shared across tests.
