About Deploying Your UFT Testing Agent

For UFT to communicate with your Testing Agent, the agent must be installed on the same computer as UFT, and registered with UFT. From the user's perspective, after you install and register the Testing Agent, it acts as a UFT add-in. For example, UFT displays the name of your environment in all of the dialog boxes that display lists of add-ins or supported environments. Additionally, UFT displays the list of test object classes defined by your Testing Agent in dialog boxes that display the list of test object classes available for each add-in.

You can install the Testing Agent using any procedure appropriate for your technology. The installation can be part of your software installation, or it can be a separate procedure.
