comment Selenium: reuse existing browser session, instead of opening new windows?
If you pass in the driver instance via test method argument (from the DataProvider, then you want to use BeforeMethod, but if you have a shared driver in the class for multiple test methods (which i think is a bad idea) then you want to use BeforeTest, of course.

comment How to do non-subsequent URL rewriting in JMeter?
Can you provide a screenshot of your problem so that we can see the order and arrangement of your samplers and assertions?

comment How to do non-subsequent URL rewriting in JMeter?
That sounds very unusual, and somewhat insecure for a site to implement sessions that way.

comment GUI testing Tool or Unit Testing Tool
Unit tests are usually 'headless' tests that don't use a browser. Selenium tests are GUI tests that are more associated with 'integration testing' and pretty much never used as Unit tests.

comment 1.5 Million lines of code. 0 tests. Where should we start?
I was looking around and found this project that you can use to test a Telnet GUI in Python: sourceforge.net/projects/three-t-py . Although, I would lean towards avoiding GUI testing and favoring unit tests.

If anyone else wants to suggest a better idea then please add another reply to the original question. This question is wide-open for better ideas and criticism of my answer isn't constructive.

comment JMeter script is not working in desired way for all users
There isn't really a way for anyone to give a good answer to your question. One thing is for sure, if you packet traced your tests using Wireshark, then you'd probably discover what the issue is.

comment How to find broken links using Selenium IDE
Jmeter works really well in this respect. Personally, i prefer to use Jmeter to just record an entire user session and then playback instead of random link checking.

comment automating selenium 101
I don't know of a Firefox equivilant except via the service that they call BlazeMeter . Otherwise, Selenium Grid is the only way. There is also a way to do detached sessions in Linux using XVFB but its probably really technical.

comment Can I force a Jenkins job to report a successful TestNG test even when the suite has failures?
Yes, I have seen that before but I get the impression that after all the work he did, it won't ever actually be implemented/merged. One complication that arises from this kind of thing is the question of how you report a threshold of failed tests on a "results report". I understand why Cedric, on the TestNG team might think this isn't really doable.

Why are you using Selenium IDE rather than Selenium Builder?

comment How to iterate a list of WebElements and print the values one by one to perform some action
That's right. When I make tests I record video and I run multi-threaded and so speed matters not as much to me. Therefore this technique is really useful for debugging by using video playback.

comment Force selenium to use the portable firefox application
This question is so old that it is no longer relevant. Since Firefox implemented auto-upgrading, everyone is generally on the latest version. I would argue that older versions of Firefox should not be suppported.

When you are simulating the experience of a user doing key-downs on a dropdown menu, you don't want it to go so fast that you can see it.

Can you elaborate on what you consider to be "flow control"?

comment What is a good way to receive test results from Selenium IDE browser extension?
Well, its pretty easy to wrap the tests in a JUnit suite and then send an email using javamail API when its done. If you use Gradle, you can import javamail API into the build.gradle and send the email using some Groovy code in the build script. See: github.com/djangofan/gradle-samples/blob/master/selenium.gradle

Also, Selenium Builder has "SauceLabs" integration, which is really useful for running smoke tests (in the form of recorded builder scripts) across platforms.
