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.

comment Handle HandHeld (Scanner) in selenium WebDriver
This needs more information to give a good answer. Are you testing the way the webpage handles input from the webservice sending the image, or the ability of the webservice to send the image from the scanner?

comment How do I use Testing Anywhere?
If you run tests with the tool you get the test results in the tool. Do you want to know how export the results to some other format, or how to run the tests automatically? It's hard to tell what you're asking from the question.

comment Tool for automatic GUI testing of Gupta Windows applications?
Do your GUI elements have any other attributes that you can use to identify them? If the Windows IDs are changeable, there should be something else you can grab - field name or possibly a portion of the field name. You should be able to do that with QTP.

comment Statistical Testing Application on Screens and Nested Logic
Could you give some more detail about what you're looking for here? As it stands the answer to your first question is "look at the screen" - the human eye is the most efficient method of telling when something looks different. For your second question, I suggest you work through (on paper) the process of setting the variables in the system - "Enter the system. Neither is set. I set var1 = true" and so on.

comment How to revert a virtual machine back to original state
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about managing virtual machines not software QA and testing

comment Can LDTP automate Qt-based applications?
For the Stack Exchange sites, we prefer to see answers that provide all the information necessary in the body of the answer, with links to reference supporting documentation. If you expand your answer to describe what you did and how it worked, with links to the documentation you used, it will become a really good answer to the original question.

comment How do I connect an issue on JIRA to a test case on Testlink?
ashu, I'm not sure this answers the original question - the poster says the integration has been configured but doesn't know how to link JIRA issues to Testlink test cases without raising a defect via the integration.

If I could give this multiple upvotes I would! It's the essence of our role in a handful of sentence.

comment TestNG - SendKeys not completing data entry before moving to next field
I've put this information into the body of your question and edited the question so it's clearer what you're trying to do. I'm not a Selenium or TestNG expert myself, but that might help someone who is to give you the information you need.

comment TestNG - SendKeys not completing data entry before moving to next field
Could you give some more information, please? Do you have the same problem using sendkeys with hard-coded data? What errors are you getting? You haven't given enough information for good answers.

comment How Can a Tester Increase his Observation Skills?
@user246 - Personally, I prefer puzzle games. Hidden object games can also work.

comment Can LDTP automate Qt-based applications?
Could you add some more information about how well QT 4.8 and LDTP work together? As it stands, this answer doesn't actually answer the question in more than a very basic way.

comment How do integrate QTP and Testlink so QTP tests post results to Testlink
@SammyB - It's Sabrina who wants to know this, not me. I just edited the question to clarify a little.

comment How testing of Banking/Insurance Domain is different then any other website testing?
I'd call that example a job search/recruitment domain because the primary purpose is to match potential employers with potential employees.

comment How do I assess the testing process of a project?
@user7253 - there tend not to be too many of those despite organizations trying to make them happen, mostly because every software project is different and has different demands and needs.

comment Registration page for Web Site
While these are all useful suggestions, they aren't necessarily going to be viable test cases. Required fields aren't always marked with asterisks, not all registrations send emails, there are multiple different phone number and postal code formats in use, and so forth. It all depends on the requirements of the application.

Java guru, if you have any affiliation with the Jthunder project, you should mention this: otherwise your post is little more than advertisement.

comment 1.5 Million lines of code. 0 tests. Where should we start?
Your answer - while accurate - doesn't really add anything to the answers that are already here. The other answers have mentioned requirements documents, manual tests, and potential strategies for this problem. As a rule, a new answer to an old question should be adding something to the answers already present, especially if there is an accepted answer

comment Website & Web Application
This is really too simplistic for this site - we tend to prefer more substantive answers that include reasons for the decisions and definitions.
