U all are somehow right.There are some difference between WinRunner and QTP like in case of QTP checkpoints are five etc.

WinRunner also supports web based

But the main functional difference is WinRunner doesnt support VB .Net,ASP .Net,C# .Net,SAP etc. But QTP supports all.

Hi All,

I don't think all object oriented concepts are followed by QTP. Polymorphism doesn't work. To tell you in detail:
If there are two functions with the same name but with different number of arguments, i.e. first function has 2 parameters and the other function has 3 parameters, then it won't be able to recognise the difference between the two functions.

I have seen one comment as we can call Winrunner from Qtp but cant call qtp from Winrunner.

But we can. From winrunner8.2 version we can call qtp script from winrunner but qtp version should be more than 6.5. Even we can see the qtp result from the winrunner itself.

Major difference is that QTP supports application developed using the leading-edge development environment like Java, .Net and SAP. And When compared to TSL, VB script used to program in QTP is easy.
