Rational Functional Tester added to the Test Automation Comparison Matrix

Just added Rational Funtioan Tester to my Test Automation comparison matrix.
See the matrix here:

Here is what IBM introduces RFT with:
IBM Rational Functional Tester is an automated functional testing and regression testing tool. This software provides automated testing capabilities for functional, regression, GUI, and data-driven testing. Rational Function Tester supports a range of applications, such as web-based, .Net, Java, Siebel, SAP, terminal emulator-based applications, PowerBuilder, Ajax, Adobe Flex, Dojo Toolkit, GEF, Adobe PDF documents, zSeries, iSeries, and pSeries.

  • Storyboard testing: Simplifies test visualization and editing using natural language and rendered screenshots.
  • Automated testing: Enables testers to automate tests resilient to frequent application user interface changes with ScriptAssure technology.
  • Data-driven testing: Lets you perform the same series of test actions with a varying set of test data.
  • Test scripting: Combines a recorder of user actions with multiple customization options and intelligent script maintenance capabilities.
  • Integrations: Integrates with IBM Rational Team Concert and IBM Rational Quality Manager to provide access to work items and logical or compound SCM test asset support.

It was a mixed pleasure to try. Somethings were great. But mapping in a very styled and WPF/XAML rich application, with custom controls, were not possible. So in short.
If you do have a very fancy looking GUI. You might want to look another way.
