I am a software QA engineer since 1996. I always pay it forward.

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.

comment Flow Control in Selenium IDE
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.

Ok. Did you consider using the newer "Selenium Builder" Firefox extension instead? If not, you may not be able to take advantage of the Jenkins plugin to run them, but I am sure you have a good reason to stay on the old IDE plugin.

comment Running Selenium tests as a scheduled task
I think PhantomJS may serve your purpose better than HtmlUnit. Otherwise, using a browser driver will open the browser in the foreground, which may not be what you intend.

comment How to start Selenium with Firefox Portable?
Why are you passing testsuite.html and testresults.html as arguments to the command to start Selenium server/grid ? JUnit test results have nothing to do with the grid server. Those are properties of the JUnit test runner.

comment Running Web and Application Automated Tests from the same Framework
Have you identified which Continuous Integration server you will use? Jenkins perhaps?

comment How have Guava unit tests been generated automatically?
Its probably similar to how SoapUI can read a webservice WSDL and then it knows how to generate all the stubs for all the endpoint methods. I would guess CodePro Analytix must use Reflection to generate tests (or at least the stubs)? This is a total guess: stab in the dark.

comment How to start Selenium with Firefox Portable?
The answer is that you start Firefox Portable, configure the browser to your liking, then close the browser, THEN find the profile directory and copy that directory to wherever you want. Then, configure the Grid hub to point to that directory in the JSON config. Otherwise, you can do the same thing in code when you are defining the driver and specifying the Capabilities object, etc. Also, Selenium has a Profile class where you can generate a new profile and locate it whereever you want on the file system.

comment How to start with Selenium and TeamCity integration?
Also, do yourself a favor and compare TeamCity to Jenkins and make sure you choose TeamCity only if Jenkins is unable to do what you need.

comment Selenium Server and Windows Server compatibility
Technically you don't need to install Java. You could just copy a Java JDK/JRE directory over to the machine and start the Selenium node from it.

comment How does a tester's perspective toward software differ from a developer's?
I did not vote on this answer but I think it is obvious that this answer is too short and doesn't live up to the expected detail that the question is begging.

comment SDET working as freelancer?
Finding work as a QA contractor is easy. There are tons of those jobs out there. Every time I go to my monthly QA meeting there are more recruiters there than members.

comment Is it realistic to try to hire someone who is a developer and a tester?
Salary.com says a developer with 5 years experience should be able to make 70K-90K as a QA Engineer. With 6+ years, 80K-100K or more.
