Applies to TestComplete 12.60, last modified on November 7, 2018

Will TestComplete test my application?” -- This is probably one of the first questions our clients ask about TestComplete. As a matter of fact, TestComplete does not depend on any development tool. It can simulate user actions (keystrokes, mouse movements and clicks) under any application no matter whether this application was created in C#, Visual C++, Delphi or Java. However, in most cases, this kind of testing (testing via GUI) cannot provide reliable and thorough results. Quite often, QA engineers need access to the application internal objects, methods and properties. This is required, for example, for unit testing. You can get this access using TestComplete. It can “open” internal objects, methods and properties up to private object elements in the application under test.

Below is a list of major development tools, software platforms and application types supported by TestComplete.
