I am working on a project where we migrate the data between different databases or across database. We run queries to test requirments but I want to automate the things. We use tools like SQL Server, Oracle, SSIS, Informatica. Can we use QTP or any other automation tool for such testing?

Iam new to this site and found it very useful. I have worked as a software tester for 7 years  and would like to return to the testing market again after a gap of 2 years from the industry as my child is young.

I have worked on Agile methodologies and some scripting in ruby (basic knowledge) with Cucumber.

I would like to learn few technologies and an automation tool before I start looking for jobs. Please advice me what scripting langauge and automation tools I should focus on.

Since I have a gap of 2years I would like to gain skills before I start giving interviews.

Please help!

I work in the healthcare industry and we are looking to bring a tool in-house for automation. Currently our billing application is done in Java Swing and I have found capatibility issues using Selenium against Swing, but not sure about QTP or TestComplete.

Any insight on the better of the two and why would be incredibly helpful. Thank you in advance.
