What is WinRunner and what are its important aspects ?

Mercury Interactive's WinRunner is a testing tool to do functional/regression testing. Using WinRunner, GUI operations can be recorded. While recording, WinRunner automatically creates a test script. This test script can be run automatically later on for carrying an unattended testing.
