comment Should your QA Automated tests reside with application code?
It does look like a duplicate doesn't it? We'll put it on hold for now as a duplicate - @Rudesyle can you take a look at the suggestion, & if you don't think it's enough to answer your question, edit your question so it's clear what's different & we can reopen for answers.

If you didn't give the customers step-by-step instructions, what would they do? What do they do normally, once the software is in production?

@Ju-chan - I see that you've not yet asked this over in dba.stackexchange.com. Do you want us to ask the dba mods if we can migrate the question over there?

comment Can any one explain me about how / where to use Listeners in TestNG?
Hi @swap, welcome to SQA. I'm putting this question on hold as it's pretty vague at the moment, so people are struggling to answer you. If you have more specific questions or can provide more information then people can be more helpful.

comment Should I learn python or java to get into test automation? New to programming
This is so close to the question @user246 pointed out (which has a lot of good answers, and is better worded) that I'd be inclined to close this as a duplicate if it didn't already have some good responses. What do you think?

While these are useful resources, they don't really answer the original question. (Admittedly the original question does ask for links, but what's your view on the main question?)

comment What would be the best test case format?
Agreed. This is just too broad. @ashu, if you can provide some context then people may be able to help more.

comment Are there some free-to-use test methodologies?
Dee, both dziecou and I know plenty of answers. Most are going to be totally irrelevant to you. If you can't give us a bit more information, we can't give you good answers - it's a two way thing I'm afraid. Different methodologies suit different situations. It depends what problem you're trying to solve.

Hi Dee, what problem are you trying to solve? Yes, there are plenty of free-to-use testing methodologies, but why do you want to change, and what do you need to accomplish?

comment QA internship..what should my workflow look like?
Mate, you are an intern. You're not supposed to know what to do coming in, they're supposed to support and mentor you. If the company doesn't get much value back from you, given what sounds like a complete lack of feedback and structure, then that's exactly what they deserve. I hate companies who are too cheap to hire professionals, so they hire an intern and then surprise!, because they don't have any professionals or any semblance of a clue about what the pro does there's nobody to support the intern! It's not you. It's them. Learn, and move on to a more clueful company as fast as you can!

comment How to locate the X-path of an element in eclipse accurately?
Hi @Senthil, welcome to SQA. I agree with Francis, the question is quite specific about Eclipse (and there are plugins for Eclipse specifically).

comment How to locate the X-path of an element in eclipse accurately?
You seem to be only getting answers about Firefox. I don't use Eclipse. I turned up a few things like gibert.jp.free.fr/projects/eclipse/plugins/xpathfinder on searching, but as I haven't used them can't evaluate them.

comment Setting browser to display notifcation for all errors - good idea?
Is it only QA who has it turned on? For something that gives such quick low-effort feedback, it seems a little strange if the programmers aren't using it. Just thinking this might be another option - I'm assuming that your devs do a quick happy path run-through after coding, if they turned on notifications for this then they'd be able to evaluate the seriousness (or not) of the error. (FWIW, I work on a web-based SaaS app, and if I spot JS errors, I point them out to the dev and we discuss the implications. It's going to vary on a case by case basis.)

comment Some good books for Web Testing
There are a number of threads with good book recommendations already - sqa.stackexchange.com/questions/42/… is one. I'd also recommend you read this blogpost by James Bach: satisfice.com/blog/archives/958

comment question if this job should be a red flag or not
Hi @Jacob-Hong - I'm closing this question as it's really not on topic for the site, for a number of reasons. meta.sqa.stackexchange.com/questions/241/… I appreciate your worries about trying to figure out if a role will be good for you or not, can I suggest you try posting your question in chat to get feedback? That's a more suitable location for discussion. Otherwise, you might find workplace.stackexchange.com is worth trying for this one?

comment Writing test cases before implementation?
Hi @sachin-dhall - welcome to SQA. I agree with Kate, your answer doesn't add anything useful (generally we recommend that a good answer provides context for a link sqa.stackexchange.com/help/how-to-answer). Also, overt self-promotion such as linking to your own blog is generally frowned upon - it's okay to link a relevant article occasionally (with full disclosure!), but the one you've picked has no real relevant content, so it just looks like spam. Can you expand your answer so that it answers the poster's original question?

comment Building trust in automated front-end testing
This is a good idea, but in my current team we rarely get as far as raising a defect from our GUI automated tests - if our tests catch a regression we tend to just fix it immediately. For two reasons - 1) if it's just broken, then it just makes sense for the dev who broke it to amend his/her code straightaway, and 2) our test coverage for legacy areas is focused on the really important areas, so we know we can't release with a bug so we might as well fix it now. So you do need to point out that a benefit of failing fast is lowering the cost (i.e. some bugs get fixed w/o overhead of report).
