comment Selenium Automation Framework Design Technique
Selenium does not have a hash map feature, but your programming language (java? C#?) does.

comment How do you test your unit-tests for false negatives?
I edited the question to use "positive" and "negative" in the conventional way.

comment How do you test your unit-tests for false negatives?
Terminology note: in medicine, the purpose of a test is to detect a disease; if it detects the disease, the outcome is positive, otherwise it is negative. Similarly, the purpose of a test is to find bugs, so FAIL is a positive outcome and PASS is a negative outcome. A false positive would be a FAIL that does not actually correspond to a bug, and a false negative would be a PASS that fails to detect a bug. You seem to be using the terms in the opposite sense. See for example "Positive or negative" in en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Medical_test.

comment Should the highest bug priority be limited to bugs found on the production server
Yes. The bug categorizations do not exist in isolation -- they exist as a shorthand for a longer conversation about how you want to manage your software lifecycle. It may be fine to define P0 to mean "found a production server", but everyone with a stake in the outcome should agree about that.

comment How would I write a test for a database system such as Redis?
This API is a little more complicated than "any other API". See aphyr.com/posts/283-call-me-maybe-redis for example.

comment How to use Python/Webdriver to go through multiple URLs and take screenshots using loops?
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it is about how to use loops in a programming language and not about testing per-se.

comment QA strategies for a front-end developer
Pick the browsers you care the most about. Then figure out which workflows you care the most about. Test the cross product of those. Let the rest fall on the floor because they're less important and you don't have time for them.

comment Software testing and non-functional properties
I'm not sure I understand the question. Are you asking whether automated test is good for those things? Or whether software testers are capable of testing non-functional things? Or something else?

comment Where can I find examples of software development and testing documentation?
While you wait for someone to write an answer worthy of your acceptance, you might ponder what kind of committees write standards documents on software development processes, under what circumstances someone would choose to adhere to follow those standards to the letter, and finally whether writing those documents is a good use of time.

comment Random test data: How to do it right?
It's not whether you duplicate logic; it's how much you need to duplicate. If you use random data in an app with a complicated data model, you can end up going down a rat hole.

comment What's “Offline” in SDLC and when/why do we use test automation?
It may not make sense to automate something whose test interface changes a lot, because your test maintenance costs will outweigh the benefit.

comment Stress test mvc application
RE JMeter. How many machines depends on the web site. You'll need to try it for yourself. You also need to be more precise about the requirements: 10000 simultaneous users? 10000 users over the course of a minute? Or an hour?
