Difference between Cucumber and QTP
Before knowing the differences between cucumber and QTP first, let's take a quick introduction of these.
Cucumber is a Behavior Driven Development tool used by the testers to develop test cases for the testing of behavior of the software.
Cucumber uses Gherkin language to write the test scripts. Gherkin language is a simple English text language hence anybody can understand it without any technical knowledge.
It allows developers, testers, business analysts, etc. to automate functional verification and validation in an easily readable and understandable format (e.g., plain English).
Cucumber tool was initially written in the "Ruby" programming language. It was exclusively used only for testing of Ruby as a complement to the RSpec BDD framework.
QTP stands for Quick Test Professional. It is a software tool which helps testers in performing automated functional testing. In QTP, the automated functional testing is done without any monitoring and only after the completion of test script development. QTP is best suited for regression testing of the software applications.
QTP uses Visual Basic Scripting (VBScript) language for automation testing of the software applications.
VBScript is not an object-oriented language, but it is an object-based language.
We don't need to install the Scripting Engine exclusively, as it is already available as a part of the Windows Operating System (OS).
The Current version of VBScript is 5.8, which is a part of Windows 7.
Now, let's have a look at fundamental differences between Cucumber and QTP:
