What's New in UFT Developer 2023
This topic describes the new features and enhancements available in UFT Developer 2023.
Note: This Help Center includes documentation relevant for UFT Developer versions 2021 through 2023. Any version-specific changes are indicated where relevant.
UIA Pro (Technical Preview)
UFT Developer's new UIA Pro add-in supports testing Windows-based applications that have implemented UI Automation provider interfaces. This can help you test applications and objects that are not otherwise identified by UFT Developer.
Note: If you want to use UFT Developer on a machine that has UFT One installed as well, you need to open UFT One before UFT Developer for UIA Pro to work.
See UI Automation in UFT Developer (tech preview).
UFT Mobile is now Digital Lab
UFT Mobile has been rebranded to UFT Digital Lab. This UFT Developer Help Center uses both names, "UFT Digital Lab (UFT Mobile)", for the sake of UFT Developer users using versions 2022 and earlier.
See Test mobile apps.
SAPGUI testing enhancement
The Java SDK now enables you to retrieve the row index of a TableRow object.
See the Java SDK Reference.
