There is a good chance that you might find some features which are useful in your project, thereby helping you decide if you want to switch to the newer version of the tool.

Let’s now have a look at the new features in UFT 12.53 –

UFT 12.53 - New Features

Enhanced Mobile testing

This version of UFT supports enhanced functionality for both native and hybrid mobile apps. Now, you can:

  • a) Configure devices and applications for your tests directly from the new Mobile Center wizard
  • b) Test non-packaged apps. This means you no longer need to package apps to upload them to Mobile Center
  • c) Test mobile web apps using the device’s native browser – Safari for iOS devices, and Chrome for Android devices


New Docker activities for API tests

UFT now provides new Docker activities which enable you to perform remote actions on your containerized Docker applications.Use these new activities to:

  • a) Download an image of the Docker container that contains your application
  • b) Run an image containing the application
  • c) Stop the container currently running the test

You can also test the application from the Docker container using standard UFT activities


OData protocol support for API tests

Now you can use UFT to test your OData REST services:

  • a) Import the OData service as a REST service. You can import a service from a file or from a URL
  • b) Construct a test using the service’s resources and methods

UFT runs the test just the same as any other REST service test


Configure Chrome Emulator devices

You can now configure and add devices for your Chrome Emulator by manually editing the Chrome emulator configuration XML


Run UFT tests from Amazon Web Services Marketplace

Now you can use AWS to access a system that contains the latest version of UFT pre-installed on multiple combinations of operation systems and browsers. Doing this also enables you to pay per use of UFT as needed


Support for Chromium Embedded Framework controls

You can now use UFT to test applications containing Chrome embedded controls, including Java CEF and Adobe CEP


Synthetic data generation for BPT tests

Now you can use the BPT Test Combinations Generator to create synthetic data for your test runs instead of creating all possible parameter values manually. In the Test Combinations Generator, select a parameter to automatically generate its values. Then select the parameter type and format. UFT uses built-in dictionaries to automatically populate the list of possible values with the generated data


UI Automation updates

UFT’s UI Automation support enables UFT to recognize objects in any application that has implemented the Microsoft Windows UI Automation Framework. This is especially helpful when UFT’s current technology support is not sufficient for your testing needs. In UFT 12.53, support has been added for:

  • a) Switching between regular Spy and Learn modes while spying and learning objects instead of selecting a mode beforehand
  • b) Setting the default Spy and Learn mode to UI Automation
  • c) Enhancing your tests using new UI Automation test object methods, native methods, and object identification properties


Web Accessibility toolkit updates

UFT supports the Web Accessibility toolkit to recognize objects that use the HTML role property. The Web Accessibility toolkit is used to create digital content that is accessible to people with disabilities. In UFT 12.53, Web Accessibility toolkit support has been added for:

  • a) All Web 2.0 toolkits
  • b) Web-based add-ins
  • c) Testing Mobile browsers
  • d) Testing the Chrome emulator
