QTP vs open source tools (and what may be the greatest comment ever)

Posted by Mike Longin on September 17, 2009

Came across this article thanks to Jason Huggins (http://twitter.com/jhuggins)
and got a great kick out of it. http://www.qtp10.com/2009/08/qtp-vs-selenium.html
UPDATE: The original post this came from is here:http://functionaltestautomation.blogspot.com/2008/10/sno-features-qtp-selenium-explanation_22.html
My favorite line is now and will forever be:

Tests developed using selenium can be easily part
of the development project. Using tools like cruise control
Continuous Integration is easier with Selenium. But don’t get too
caught up with this feature, it’s really not that important to be
integrated with the development process but it’s nice to
have.

Whats the point of doing automation if its
not part of the development process? What are we gaining from
all the work we put in if is just an after the fact
artifact?
