Currently the sole test specialist for a team of 10. Building automation from scratch and having fun. I write SF & Fantasy in what I laughingly refer to as my spare time, and I'm a few cats short of Crazy Cat Lady.

@Lord_Gestalter - thanks! I've corrected it.

comment What is the difference between integration and interface tests?
@Twaldigas - so many aspects of testing depend heavily on context, and that does include the definitions - which is not always a good thing. It would be nice to have more widely accepted definitions so we didn't need to build our own glossaries, but at the same time, we still need to communicate where we work which means using the definitions there.

comment Exploratory Testing
This is really too broad for this site - there will be no "correct" answer. If you edit your question to ask for the benefits and drawbacks of having no specific testing phase, it would fit better into the format here.

comment What is the meaning of J in Apache Jmeter performance testing tool?
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about why a piece of software is named the way it is

comment Browser Testing
Generally before release, although if there are major look/feel changes they'll get a quick look.

Is there a reason you need to do the comparison this way?

comment Browser Testing
There's going to be a lot of opinions on this question, but I think it would be a good candidate for a general reference question

comment Desktop Application testing using selenium
This isn't really an answer to the question, which asks if a desktop application can be tested with Selenium.

@I19 - It isn't in the list because I'm not perfect and didn't get everything when I wrote this answer.

comment What are basic metrics of coverage with functional UI automation testing
What kind of automation coverage do the client and developers want? It's relatively trivial to have a high level of code coverage and miss critical paths through the system. It's also usually impossible to test all possible paths through most software. Knowing why you want the information will help us give you better answers.

This should be a comment, not an answer. Could you please repost as a comment and delete your answer?

comment How can i start my session in other browser rather than firefox in Selenium WebDriver?
It would help if you explained what your code is doing to open the session in different browsers instead of just pasting code. That will make your answer useful to anyone looking for this information.

comment validations for text fields like country, State, cities
Prakash Nanda, this doesn't answer the question. The original poster is asking what data should be permitted. The link you give discusses how to validate.

comment What is the best code coverage tool for a java based Web application
Answers to this question are likely to be very subjective - perhaps you could reword to ask for advantages and disadvantages of tools that meet your requirements?

comment Robot framework. How to select option by text but value
The code you have here doesn't give enough information to answer this question. What value are you trying to select, and what are the steps you need to take to make the selection? If you are trying to select the text from a dropdown in a popup and make sure it correctly updates the parent page, we need that information to help you.

comment Send testng report through email after test execution
Could you explain the link contents? That way, the information is kept with the question, so if the link ever dies the information is still available here.

comment Learning resources for Performance Testing and LoadRunner
You really need to add more information to make this a useful answer, particularly with the age of the question and the number of other answers.

comment As a black box tester should I be asked to identify when defects were introduced and by who?
@dzieciou - absolutely. Another case I've dealt with is where the application has been under continuous development for 25 years and was originally written in a way that isn't compatible with modern languages. The old code was grandfathered in and everyone was scared to try to change it.
