Capturing failures

In the previous post, we have seen the importance of Test Results Reporting. Capturing failures is helpful to debug the failure. Script will try to capture the error message in case of failure. If it is unable to capture the expected message or details, then it will capture the screen shot of particular object or screen. Usually these snapshots are bitmap files. Later I used an utility to convert a bitmap image to GIF image. It helps me to reduce the storage space.

Most of the load testing tools are capturing the objects as images or HTML files. Now Functional tools also providing this feature. Silktest provides the same feature through TrueLog Explorer. It is available from Silktest8.0 I hope that QTP also has same feature in different name.
