I know why I am a tester. My driving force is my curiosity: I want to know how things work, why they work and why they don't.

comment What are the main role and responsibilities of a tester?
"Avoid bureaucracy and focus on what really matter." That's not a responsibility. That's an approach.

Regarding code reviews those can be performed also by testers.

comment Is it fair to report a bug discovered during code review without performing a test?
Those I found I would re-review, because they were rather trivial and obvious. I want also to focus system tests (that I will perform, when test environment is ready) in that area.

comment How do I convince someone who's bought the Record-Playback line that object oriented framework is essential?
I wouldn't throw away record/playback solutions completely. There's some research on how to make maintenance as easy as recording new tests. Have you heard of RPF: Google's Record Playback Framework? "We figured this might reduce the number of false-positive test failures and make updating them much quicker." Has anyone validated their claims about maintainability?

comment Where to focus testing? On integration level or unit level?
On the other hand: what if the system fails on lower level (e.g., unit level) but does not fail on higher level (e.g. system level)? I've read once an article about random testing that found many bugs in OS drivers, but those bugs were ignored by OS authors, because libraries using those drivers check invalid input before it arrives to faulty drivers. Maybe it does not make sense to cover literally all paths?

Thanks, Edu. In your practice, where you put such a new category for things to improve? In bug tracking system? Or you have some separate system to track technical debt? One options I see could be tools for collaborative code review that let you annotate the code...

SOAP UI is just a part of the game (on test driver part). The system is complex and relies on external components, so setting up environment just for this single test is expensive. Also, since the request is forwarded by many subsystems, I would need to verify it in the very last one. But you're right, I may challenge myself how to setup whole environment for tests faster/easier.
