UFT add-ins help you to create and run tests and business components on applications in a variety of development environments. After you load an add-in, you can record and run tests or business components on applications in the corresponding development environment, similar to the way you do with any other application. When you work with UFT add-ins, you can use special methods, properties, and various special options to create the best possible test or business component for your application.
You can install UFT add-ins when you install UFT, or you can install the add-ins at a later time by running the installation again in Modify mode.
When UFT opens, you can choose which of the installed add-ins you want to load using the Unified Functional Testing Add-in Manager Dialog Box, but to maximize performance, you should load only the add-ins you need for that testing session. If you do not select any add-ins, UFT automatically loads Standard Windows and Windows Runtime (on Windows 8.x and higher computers) support..
UFT includes built-in support for testing standard Windows applications and Windows Runtime applications (on Windows 8.x or higher). This support is automatically loaded when UFT opens.
Tip: The Web Services Add-in is supported for backwards compatibility only and is not enabled by default. New tests and components can use UFT's API testing solution for web service testing purposes. To enable the Web Services Add-in for previously created tests, contact HPE Software support.
When you load an add-in, UFT recognizes the objects you work with on the corresponding environment. In many cases, loading the add-in also adds new user interface options and capabilities to UFT, as well as adding support for the add-in's object model—the set of test objects, methods, and properties specially designed for working with the objects in your development environment.
