Is Descriptive Programming a more better approach than using Object Repositories...


...for Test Automation using QTP (particularly for large applications)

With emerging technologies and new methodologies (like Agile) in place, it seems that descriptive programming is slowly taking a frontstage. Few conditions, like supporting multiple releases of a product accross different Test environments, Large applications that are constantly changing, Objects getting transformed (Link becomes Image) and New Technologies (like Flex, Infragistics Controls) demand more robust maintenance. I believe, having Object Repositories may add to more maintenance. Any comment or suggestion is highly appreciated.

What is more important...... Approach(Aptitude) or Knowledge(Experience)

I have been doing manual testing as well as automation testing. my experience in automation testing was on a Open source tool involving XML scripting.While looking for jobs in automation testing, I have come across opening for QTP automation. Almost interviewer / company stresses on having prior hands-on experience of the tool. I have seen people working in automation(who worked with me, as well as people who worked in QTP) for several years, still they are not really familiar about the basic approach of the automation. I would be interested in knowing views of the members on this. What do you think is more important in case of Automation testing, when a candidate is being recruited....... Automation approach OR Automation Tool knowledge !!!!!!!!
