It seems I'm the only one free at this hour, so please settle for my reply for the time being until the rest chip in later.

To me, FT is generally synonymous with UAT. Didn't know about that until I stumbled upon a website that told me so.

If your application is fully a GUI one (ie. its functions are all accessed through the UI and nowhere else) then GUI Testing is your FT.

However, most applications require FT that includes non GUI Testing too such as testing for creation of a file etc .

Here you are, another of my 2 cents' worth.
