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.

I voted to migrate to stackoverflow - you'll get a better response there.

comment What's a significant slogan for the formal review process?
I think this is probably too subjective for this forum. It would certainly fit in over at the Software Testing Club forums.

comment How to best design and create a load test on a web application?
This doesn't really answer the question - the OP is looking for information about the design of load tests and the meaning of load test results.

comment Unable to find element in selenium
Could you please post as an answer that you had the driver instance incorrect, and then mark your answer as the correct one? It would help others if you added information on how you determined your driver instance was incorrect

Dean, this should be a comment, not an answer because you're requesting clarification rather than answering the question.

comment Number of production patches metric
There are no good measurements. Any measurement you use can be gamed, but the answer @Jeff_Lucas linked to has some advice.

Absolutely @DiscoMcDisco - skilled testers are skilled testers whatever segment of the software industry they're in.

comment How to keep track of Test Case versus Test Plan
@phadaphunk - I know, it's a nuisance. There's a reason I'm building a chunk of extra interfacing by the API to be able to access this kind of data for myself. That takes pretty solid programming, though, and a lot of messing around in places Microsoft would really rather you didn't touch (which is why what I've done so far is kludgy as all get-out).

comment junit (no sequential order execution)
A little more information about what you're trying to do with this test would help people to answer it. At the moment, all I can suggest is that you include the import that's suggested.

comment What are some different styles of writing test cases?
Welcome, Eddy. I'm not sure what you want from your question - at the moment it's not really a good question because it's too subjective. To improve it, you need to edit to ask something that can have a right answer - possibly something about the essential elements of a good test case regardless of style?

By "leading organization" do you mean a test contracting organization? Also, what do you mean by "a little unicast"?

comment What is the difference between regression testing and re-testing?
This list appears to be directly taken from other sources without attribution, as well as having a lot of incorrect information.

comment QA Testing Process
@Rudesyle - There's nothing bad about using a recording mechanism to capture the identifiers for a test. If you don't customize and parameterize (and reuse that code), you end up with an unmaintainable mess that's loaded with repeated and near-repeated code. In an app where you've got to log on to do anything, a standard record/playback test will log on, do something, log off. Imagine having to update thousands of those because of a change to the logon screen and you see the problem.

comment What is the correct way to select an <option> using Selenium's Python WebDriver
Given that you're adding this to an old question with an accepted answer, you really need to do more than just drop in some code.

comment How to select date from Calculator
Could you give us some more information? It's impossible to answer with the information you've given - is the calendar an inline display? A popup component? Is it displayed in a separate page or is it a javascript widget? What have you done to try to automate so far and what are the results?

comment Can anyone with knowledge on Dafny explain why this method won't verify?
I don't see anywhere that specifies the array elements being positive integers. I'm not familiar with Dafny, but it looks like you're requiring the array elements to be greater than 0.

@WernerCD, also the number of decimal places. Yen have no decimals. Some currencies have 3.

comment Who should log bugs?
@user5529 - my view is they should adapt and fit with any methodology. The end goal is the highest quality software the team can produce with the resources and time they have. It doesn't matter how they get to that goal - although it tends to work better if everyone on the team is using the same methodology.

Also, the way the question is written, checking that the data contained in the XML is correct.
