I am currently a QA lead at Nike, leading a team of 6 in manual and automated testing efforts.

Prior to Nike, I was at Webtrends for 2+ years, and prior to that was at Microsoft for 13 years. During my time at Microsoft my responsibilities evolved from test planning and manual testing on various projects to --> writing automation and overseeing manual testing efforts from vendors to --> Developing automation tools and processes for the Windows Live organization including a web UI automation framework and a test result reporting platform as well as other smaller tools. At Webtrends I was the most senior automation engineer and was responsible for creating and executing on an automation plan for the company. We went from no automation to significant coverage via UI automation for both of our legacy products as well as near 100% web service automation for one of our new products. In addition, I created performance test suites for 3 products and was involved in hiring 5 additional developers in test for the company.

comment How to open multiple browsers using webdriver?
+1 I just re-read the question and realized they most likely are asking how to open multiple browser windows simultaneously and not different browsers as my answer pointed to... Long holiday weekend :-)

comment What test generators do exist?
@dzieciou - Alan's answer to the question you linked is spot on. I used model based testing a few times and it was successful when used for state based machines, but not so useful when applied to something like UI automation or rest web services. It can be used SOMETIMES with those features, if there is a specific flow or tree that you can follow and you want to test that.

comment Looking for open source, Java-based tool for performance testing
I haven't used Gatling, but from what I have read, it should meet your needs.

Agree, also I have had some success using Selenium to write one off performance tests (not re-using existing functional tests) for the sole purpose of measuring performance while under load.

I agree with user246's answer. You may also want to look at this: sqa.stackexchange.com/questions/3551/…

I'm accepting this answer as it answers the question around CQL attacks. I still would like to see some tools/canned attacks, and would like to find some info specific to hbase injection attacks.

comment When should I start doing performance testing of a web-app?
I may have stretched the term "optimize" a bit. The intention was to stress that thinking of performance from the very beginning is important, as Joe mentioned - part of design and planning. And again, performance testing can be done very early at a component level and still be effective, but you are right that actually making optimizations can wait, but be driven by the results of those tests.

comment When should I start doing performance testing of a web-app?
I agree with Joe. Even if you don't have clearly defined response times for individual components, stress testing them can definitely uncover unexpected resource consumption, flakiness and/or capacity issues.

This is touching on "Percieved performance" which Ajax is helpful with. I still think there are important actual performance issues that should and could be found and resolved as well.

comment Internationalization testing
+1. Add to this list Right to Left langauges/formatting (if you will support any) and ensuring everything that should be localized is localizable. I'm sure the second point is part of the first link Joe gave.

comment How do I test injection attacks similar to SQL injection for non sql solutions, or do I?
Thanks Phil, I have seen some of this information, I guess my real problem is that I feel like there are too many unknowns for me. I can find a thousand sql injection attacks with a quick search, but would have to create my own list of potential CQL injection attacks to add to my testing/automation.

Thanks, we're still following practices to escape characters, etc. My real concerns are that there is a lot of knowledge and specific tools and examples around SQL injection and much less info for injection against other nosql solutions.

comment Webdriver Check if Checkbox is Set and Set it if Not
IWebElement is if you're using the .net webdriver. Ah, I didn't realize you wanted to check all 3 checkboxes. In that case you could do driver.findElements instead of driver.findElement and then put the code above in a foreach to iterate through each checkbox.
