How to Crack HP UFT – Automation interviews easily ?

From our experience we came across some of the questions which we never thought of preparing or are even never expected that our interviewer will ask such alien puzzles. In such situation we are left with ridiculous options like “I never came across this” or “I can’t remember” or “I don’t know” (generally this is the hardest part to accept, and it has major role to play in cracking the interview). So below are very few such questions. We request our readers i to contribute to this list thus all of us, as community  can grab appropriate opportunities.

I am planning for QTP 11.X certifiaction in next month . Does UFT (unified testing) questions will be included in that .

Appreciated anyone response

where can I find the actual full form of .tsr and .mtr in UFT tool? or In which website, I can find the actuall full forms of abbreviations related to QTp or UFT?

.tsr stands for (Test Script repository ). Its an extension for Shared object repository.
.mtr stands for (Module test repository. Its an extension for local object repository.

It's unfortunate that most of these questions are meaningless memory tests, and would not reflect on whether a person was actually great with the tool or not.

You would be far more valuable to a company if you could explain how you use the tool to gain efficiency and quality with it,

– Sharing Function Libraries and Obj Repos for single point of maintenance
– The best ways to Data Drive your test, and manage the data
– Descriptive programming, and/or what you do when an object has no unique characteristics.
– How to handle web pages that have dynamic things happening after page load in the presentation layer
– Explain what Test Coverage is, how you get it and how that is related to automation…

Good luck everyone,
