comment How to ignore/accept/avoid SSLHandshakeException while trying to check for broken links?
While this link may answer the question, it is better to include the essential parts of the answer here and provide the link for reference. Link-only answers can become invalid if the linked page changes.

comment How to determine breaking point of my application when performance testing from jMeter
An example of what Sam described: I tested a Java webapp that used a 30-minute session timeout. Every session consumed heap space. The webapp's capacity was constrained by the heap size; you couldn't create more than 70K sessions in a 30-minute period. That worked out to about 13 new sessions/sec. You could run a test much faster than 13 sessions/sec as long as you stopped before reaching 70K sessions.

comment Load Testing Options for Clojure Application
Load testing tools for a webapp typically only talk to the webapp over HTTP. Can you elaborate on what it means for a webapp application to not work seamlessly with Clojure? Do you mean you prefer to write your load tests in Clojure because it is your language of choice? Or does your webapp have Clojure functions that your load testing app needs to call directly?

comment Can testers benefit from knowing the status of unit tests?
I'm not sure I understand your question. Are you asking whether (1) testers would benefit by writing unit tests, or (2) quality is better because of unit tests, or (3) testers can do a better job because of unit tests, or something else?

comment Selenium webdriver java with jdbc
MD5 is not an encryption algorithm; it is a hash algorithm. Encryption is a reversible process (otherwise there is no point in encrypting); hashing is not reversible.

comment Should Copy Paste be allowed in Confirm e-mail address field?
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about software requirements, not testing.

comment Can developer do automation test for the feature that he has implemented?
It depends on the circumstances. Automated testing is one of many parts of a developer's job. Almost no one excels at and is interested in the entire job. You need to tailor your policy to that reality. If you want a more detailed answer, you need to be specific about how and why you and your co-worker disagree.

As an aside, when you try to cover every possible combination of values, that's called combinatorial testing.
