Some remarks:

RFT is an Eclipse application. The files are stored in a workspace. The workspace can be managed by RTC

Make Note! Yes, automated GUI testing does do things automatic and fast. Time after time. It's a great starting point. But it's not all....
You still need a good test design, you have to do test management and you have to create and maintain the tests. That's still hard work. Different work, but hard work!
