Invoke QTP Test from Bamboo


We have a Java client server application . We are using Bamboo as our CI tool which is installed fon one of our server . In the delpoyment process the jar files are deployed on test server. On the test server we have QTP installed as well. Now in normal case we take the remote desktop of the test server and manually trigger our QTP test. Our requirement is to trigger the QTP test on the Test server everytime the build is deployed.

For QTP to run its test it requires a active GUI session of the machine on which it is installed.

Is it possible to run QTP on the test server from bamboo task . Is ther any pugin available.

On linux you can use xvfb to make a virtual display. Just run xvfb and specify the screen number and set your display variable accordingly

Is there any solution for Windows OS. We have our test server on Windows 2008 R2 and the client machine from where we take remote desktop is on Window 7.

You can use UFT task for Bamboo plugin. It adds a task in task list of bamboo. Add UFT task to your build and configure it.

To keep UI active you can do more research on caffeine.exe. This executable keeps GUI active.
