comment How can I automate a test scenario of account expiry or account at different time transition?
Well, manipulating VM time is kind of artificial: what if the system is checks expiration time 5 seconds before deadline and you set it to the deadline? It will miss the deadline. It's also dangerous if you have other tests running in the system in parallel.

"Merely recording and load-testing this wont work". Why?

comment Tools for REST webservice testing
What do you mean by Standard testing tool for QA? What is standard for me will not necessarily be standard for you. Are you asking for alternatives? For instance, we use a number of tools, depending on the context: curl command-line tool for quick bug reproduction, RESTAssured Java library for HTTP-level automated tests and Retrofit Java library for business-level automated tests.

comment Will learning selenium add value to my career?
I still don't agree. There are different paths in a career. I know successful and satisfied testers that hasn't moved to automation but to business analysis.

"Tester should move to automation after 3 or 4 years", because? You have found it carved somewhere in stone?

Kudos to those who downvoted without giving any argument.

comment Generate test data in which format
That question would make more sense if you asked what are the criteria when choosing the format of configurable test data. When you ask for the best solution without giving us the context, I'm voting to close it

comment Does the Page Objects pattern scale?
That's the right point. PageObject can model not only whole page but also single components on a page, e.g., table grids.

comment API Testing Using SoapUI vs Postman vs Runscope
Ok. Backend APIs is a wide term including: SOAP Web services, REST Web services, JMS queues and many others, and some testing tools support testing multiple of them, and some focus on one of them. Which one are you going to test?

I'm quite confused what actually you are asking for. What's wrong with SoapUI or Postman?

comment Selenium not finding button and throwing null pointer exception
Try to print driver value: System.out.println("driver=" + driver); just before exception is thrown, i.e., before line 31 of SMBSignupLandingPage class.

comment Selenium not finding button and throwing null pointer exception
Can you also provide full stacktrace with NullPointerException? I'm curious because WebDriver is supposed to throw NoSuchElementException when it cannot find a matching element. I guess you may get NullPointerException because driver variable is null.

comment Getting response headers with Selenium Webdriver / Chromedriver
You can mix Selenium tests with tests using other technologies. If you really want to use only Selenium, you could verify pages for custom error descriptions or page title: that's the thing you're able to get from HTML document. But they always will be custom to the specific page or app, in contrast to HTTP protocol.

comment Getting response headers with Selenium Webdriver / Chromedriver
Selenium is not best suited to verify HTTP response headers or, in general, to work on HTTP protocol level. I have no expertise in Ruby, but quick search in Google returned two Ruby HTTP clients, gem and Net::HTTP. Here's a way to check response status with the latter: stackoverflow.com/questions/12023231/…

comment Not able to execute 700 Test Cases on Firefox and Chrome
Finally, this workaround has some flaws: if the test if failing because of intermittent bug in the system, then by re-runing the test until it pass you may ignore this bug. How do you know when the test is failing because of the bug in the test or in the system?
