"Accidentally used for testing" can you explain this comment? I think that the Microsoft Test Manager team would disagree with you :-)

comment QTP is not recognising Java objects
One of the benefits of commercial testing tools is the support provided by the vendors. I suggest that you raise this with HP.

comment Any tricks to using Microsoft Word to build cross-referenceable requirements statements in test plan documentation?
The old Rational Requisite Pro was a word add in that solved this exact problem. I haven't used it for 15 years or so but you might want to start looking there.

comment How to test facebook likes using webdriver without being flagged as a bot?
I'm with Joe. Facebook tests Facebook. They have some of the best Webdriver testers working for them. You don't need to waste time "testing" it. In this context, you ARE a bot and should be flagged.

comment Mantis or RedMine
This question won't be able to have a definitive answer and answers will be opinion based. Unfortunately they are not a good fit for this site. Can I suggest you ask another question that can be answered. Like "What are some of the issues that are causing people to migrate away from Manis?"

comment Quality Center: How to check if a test is already included in any requirement
I'm closing this as it is too localised. This is a very specific feature discoverability problem with quality centre that can be answered already with a google search. If the site was full of these questions it would reduce the value of this site.
