How to create your own checkpoints using the Expert view. Demonstrates how to check dynamic data.

Introduction to Web Testing

Introduces the UFT Web Add-In and configuring UFT for Web Testing. Smart Identification explained.

Dynamic Objects

How to test dynamic applications whose interfaces change at run-time. Looks at making the Object Repository more flexible, descriptive programming and capturing object collections from your system under test.

External Data

How to utilise test data from external sources such as csv files and MS Excel, to data-drive your test. Also looks at the new file comparison checkpoint feature.


Covers creating procedures in UFT, storing them in function libraries, and calling them from scripts.
