comment Unwanted new tab opens every time I click on a link (which is not expected)
I'm voting to close this question as it has been posted to StackOverflow already - stackoverflow.com/questions/28731433/…

Anton, please don't post identical questions simultaneously to multiple StackExchange sites - if you're not sure where it belongs, then you can migrate questions to the right site by asking the mods.

comment Open source web service testing tools comparision matrix
Agree with Chris - a comparison is meaningless unless it allows you to answer the right question. We don't have any idea what you're hoping to accomplish with the tools.

Ah - thanks for coming back to this :)

I'd agree with dzieciou - you'll get better answers elsewhere, this isn't really on-topic here.

comment How to use Python/Webdriver to go through multiple URLs and take screenshots using loops?
Hey @python, welcome to SQA. I understand that it's hard to figure out where your question fits when you're just starting out, and SQA may feel like a more comfortable home for it. But really, the previous commenters are right - you'd be better off having a look at Stack Overflow, as once you remove the bits you've already got working, what remains is a pure programming question.

comment Design a Test Automation Framework for A Given 'XYZ' System?
Re: well known test automation suites, then the WikiMedia foundation would be worth looking at: mediawiki.org/wiki/Quality_Assurance/Browser_testing - uses Ruby+Rspec so should be familiar. I am not sure what your main problem is though - your question talks about a specific scenario, but it sounds like your issue is - well, I'm not sure. Did the job state it required a Java background, or were you surprised by that in interview? Are you looking for feedback on whether your normal design approach is right? Or?

comment Controlling database state in Selenium UI Testing
In this case, we actually don't do that within the test framework - we run the tests from our CI server, and have a step that reloads the db in there (just something like "mysql testaccount < skeleton_database.sql"). We do actually have a service written by the developers for use of the integration tests that we could use to run SQL against the db - so I guess we could use that if we wanted to call it from within the test framework, but as it happens we don't.

comment How do I export test cases from HP Sprinter as XML import to HP UFT?
Thanks Gaurav. I'm not familiar with either Sprinter or UFT, so you may get asked for further information by others, but the edits you've made make it clear what you've tried so far.

Hi Gaurav - if the contents of the link are essential to your question (and I think they are, as they're the steps you've tried so far), could you summarise them in your question instead of just giving the link? Otherwise, as soon as that link decays, this question becomes useless to users of SQA.

comment Future in Manual Testing?
Hi Helping Hands, welcome to SQA! This is not really a question that is a good fit for the format here, although interesting - because it doesn't really have an answer, just a lot of opinions. It's honestly a question that the whole industry has been discussing for years without any real conclusion - so I'm going to put this on hold.

comment Where can I find good tutorials for Cloud Environment, Automated Testing in Cloud and Tools
I appreciate that it's often hard to formulate specific questions as a beginner, but this is just too broad. What's your purpose for learning this stuff? That might help us to suggest good terms to search for.

comment Who should do the automation test?
Lucas, this isn't a good fit for a question and answer site like Stack Exchange. As worded, it's just a trigger for discussion - it would be better in a forum aimed at discussion, or if you want to discuss here, head over to chat.

comment Can testers benefit from knowing the status of unit tests?
I think I'd need to know a bit more context. It is potentially valuable information, but for a whole host of different reasons e.g. if I know the devs in a team regularly don't bother to fix broken unit tests, that will affect my approach. But in my current environment, it's just a bit of a "Huh? Why should any of the unit tests be failing if the dev is done coding?", because I work with conscientious devs :)

comment Which version of Selenium should I learn?
Hi logician, there are an awful lot of questions that cover this already - have a look at sqa.stackexchange.com/questions/8685/… or sqa.stackexchange.com/questions/7312/… - or quite a few others when searching for selenium and training or learning.

comment Should Copy Paste be allowed in Confirm e-mail address field?
@sree, you're better off having a look at somewhere like ux.stackexchange.com to see if it's a common practice. I'd agree with user246, this is more about the domain expectations than testing.

Closing as an apparent duplicate - if the other question isn't what you're asking, then please add some more details to distinguish this question clearly from the one linked by Twaldigas.

comment What are basic metrics of coverage with functional UI automation testing
Note: the reason I am not talking about number of test cases is that I believe that's a meaningless metric. Show me any test suite, and I bet I can add tests to it. Talking about 100% of your test cases being covered is begging the question of why you picked those tests and not some other set from the infinite possibilities available. If you're already reporting numbers of test cases to your client, you might think of this as an opportunity to provide a slightly more nuanced report.

comment How to configure selenium Web driver into Eclipse
Hi @Prateek-Jain - welcome to SQA! Given that links can change, we generally advise that if you're giving a link as an answer, that if possible you should give a summary of what the link includes. That way later readers can either try to find the information again even if the link is now dead, or at least get some idea of what your answer was. Write for the future too! :)
