Cloud Computing Vs SaaS, PaaS and IaaS

Lot of peoples have some confusions about what is Cloud? If so then what is SaaS?
I will discuss about this topic with information I have.


Basically Cloud Computing refers some computing operation over internet, it may be any kind of service. Under this we have different models according to industry requirements. They are,
  1. Software as a Service
  2. Platform as a Service
  3. Infrastructure as a Service
Software as a Service - SaaS:
 SaaS refers simply access to an software application via internet on our client browser or any kind. It may be any kind like hosted in own environment or hosted in third party environment. 
Its related directly to end users.
Ex. Gmail, Google Docs etc.

Platform as a Service - PaaS:
PaaS refers access to a platform that provides capabilities to develop and test software applications via internet.
Its related to developers and testers who creates the software application.
Ex. Force.com(by SalesForce.Com), Google App Engine, Windows Azure, etc.

Infrastructure as a Service - IaaS:
IaaS refers access to hardware like mail servers, web servers etc via internet.
Its related to IT persons(or Organizations) who is responsible to provide environment for developers and testers to make software application.
Ex. Amazon EC2, Database.com(by SalesForce.Com), RackSpace, etc.


Hope this article will give you some ideas !!!

  1. Cloud computing is at an early stage, with a many providers; large and small, delivering a slew of cloud-based services, from full-blown applications to storage services to spam filtering. Utility-style infrastructure providers are part of the mix.



    Cloud Computing can be interpreted several different ways depending on your background.

QTP - Object Identification - Prerequesties

While starting a new project or proof of concept or after new QTP installation, we would face the issue in identifying objects as QTP built objects like WinList, WebEdit, etc.; instead everything will be identified as WinObject.

Here are some steps to ensure you did the environment setup RIGHT before start automating.
Did you enabled required Add-ins only while launchingDid you selected "Record >> Record and Run Settings" - This should be based on what type of application you are working with
Windows app - Windows >> Record and run test on any windows applications. Web app - Web >> Record and run test on any open browser.
Did you tried to launch UFT/QTP and then AUT.If its web, ensure browser zoom level set to 100%Try disabling the protected mode in IE for web.Launch UFT and AUT using RUN AS ADMINISTRATORAlso see the Object Identification Methods if you are interested.

Change IE Browser ZOOM settings

Lot of UI automation testers could have faced this problem as we could change the zoom settings while operating manually for our convenience and forgot to reset to 100%.
But our QTP and some other related tools would operate the browser perfectly if browser zoom is 100%. So wee need to change the zoom before start to run the scripts. Its better to have a code snippet in our framework to change this zoom setting right?
Here we go...

1. We can simply change the Registry values before Invoking IE
Function ChangeRegistry Dim objShell Set objShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")  objShell.RegWrite "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Zoom\ZoomFactor", "100000", "REG_DWORD" Set objShell = Nothing EndFunction This option is very useful. But in real time, lot of customers could have restricted write access to windows registry. So we can try other options.

2. Use IE COM object and Change Settings
Function ChangeIEZoom Dim intZoomLevel, objIE  intZoo…

QTP - Common error messages

Always I am seeing  many of my friends asking for help if any error occurs while running script in QTP without googling for help. How much troubleshooting you guys are doing will directly reflect your knowledge on the tool. I agree, no one knows each and every error occurs in the software. But we can improve our knowledge by googling and doing workarounds...
Whenever the question "How much level you know QTP?" arrows me, always I am comfortable with the answer "below 10%". But after answered, my mind will have an inner thought like, What are the things I have to learn to fulfill the answer I have told because I never used lot of features in QTP.

Here I am listing out some of the errors, situations and what might be the original issue things etc. I hope this will give you some ideas to improve your debug ability and to solve your errors. Kindly correct me If I am wrong in any point.
