It's certainly possible - that's the way I and many others here became testers. As Som Ghosh says, you will need to mention in your applications for test positions that you have worked in testing as well as development. I'd suggest you include details of the kind of testing you've done and the scale of the projects that you tested. I would recommend that ...

Eugene S, I had a similar problem with testing UI generated by ExtJS library. The solution I found useful was to create separate classes for more complex visual components. For instance, for data grid components I have created ExtJsDataGrid class that let me pick up a specific cell in the grid, abstracting me from obscure details in Selenium (dynamic ...

In general this is getting more and more complex with graphics, animations, tricks to increase speed, etc... but the underlying structure of the browser and html is the same.

There are tools that will analyze performance while it is running to tell you which parts of the code are the busiest. Those tools will not tell you whether you are using slow algorithms. And a hot spot is ...

Only you can really answer that. A good testing framework that can run functional test automation is software, like any other; you'd have to write it and maintain it, but you might find it easier to add tests when you don't have to worry about flakey record-and-playback, and once you have a decent framework, other developers can pitch in and write tests ...

Its good that you find interest in software testing and want to switch from programming to testing. Since you have 4 years of experience in programming you can use it as your strength to be a test developer. A test developer writes test scripts for automating tests (mostly unit level but not necessarily limited to it). Plus you fund it interesting to do ...

I think Sikuli approach (image/pattern matching with customizable similarity) is the best solution when it comes to visual intensive content as in big data applications, I am currently working with it on both web and desktop application test automation and I find it a great tool, am importing it in my java classes and creating test cases and suites as I ...
