comment Automated tests pass every time when run individually, but when they are clumped into a test suite it's a toss up if the tests will pass
@Peijie the driver is torn down and recreated for each test

comment Is it realistic to try to hire someone who is a developer and a tester?
@Ben That is exactly what I am. I was a non-programming tester and got offered a job at another shop that used automation. I learned java and am able to write Selenium test cases. It's possible, you just need to look for the right people.

comment Is there load/stress testing software that can be used for Ajax calls?
@user246 I have not used any of the tools I mentioned hands-on, I have just been researching them and most everything I've read stated the asynchronous nature of AJAX was a terrible fit. I will download the tools and look into them more. thank you

comment Competition ideas between test teams
@dzieciou I have not. I was never the one implementing the contest in my office, just observing and watching the fallout and trying to clean up the pieces. I would like to mention that we had a $ reward, so that most definitely helped ruin the contest

comment Competition ideas between test teams
introducing a timed competition will just exacerbate the issue, imo. If you have 1 hour to find as many bugs as possible, you're going to get a lot of not real bugs so people see their numbers go up. I'm sure there are instances where competitions can be a positive thing, I have never experienced that scenario myself.

comment Are Selenium functional tests reliable enough to be worthwhile?
I've had the same problem for months now. I use TestNG to run the tests. Could never get an answer as to why they fail when run in a suite

comment How do I keep Selenium test cases DRY?
That's a great way to learn to write the tests from scratch. Start with recording and modifying, then after a while you will be familiar with the language and expectations
