I believe you've gotten the 'Underlying Technology' backwards for these two. OpenScript uses Eclipse and java, and QTP uses VB Script and .net tech.

Can we use the scripts developed on Internet Explorer onto the other browsers like Chrome, Firefox and Safari? Or do we have to create separate scripts per Browser?

Can you please clarify? Thank you very much in advance.


Animesh Chatterjee said...

QTP is little advance in this context ...It supports FF/Chrome with patch safari is not supported till 11.0 not sure 11.5.

OATS supports IE and very few support of FF

Animesh Chatterjee said...

But if you want support to FF,IE,Chorme,BB browser then design your testcases against Selenium webdriver.
