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.

@RacsChisty - I'm way too familiar with this situation, unfortunately.

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.

comment Tools for Java software testing
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

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

While the screenshots are helpful, you really need to give more information in your answer.

comment Website & Web Application
@NielsvanReijmersdal - I've never seen testing be about anything other than whether a user can do what's needed. Was the Amazon of 10 years ago a web site or a web application? Did anyone care as long as they could get what they wanted there?

This question appears to be off-topic because it is a duplicate of a question on Stack Overflow: stackoverflow.com/questions/8694922/…

comment I'm researching Test Case Management tools for my company. I'd love to hear pros and cons of your favorites and why
This sounds a lot like an advertisement for the application. If you have any affiliation with the company, you need to say so. If you're simply a satisfied user, you should say that.

Could you give some more information - we prefer it here if you provide the essential information in the body of the answer and use the link as a reference.

comment Testing with PICT, but incomplete testcases
@Kyra - this sounds like the logic engine has a few quirks to it. One thing you might try is removing the last condition from the equilateral check, since IF A = B AND B = C THEN A = C (making your third condition redundant - possibly this is confusing the logic engine?)

comment Which .Net test frameworks/runners support attaching files (such as a screenshot) to the test report?
Practically anything you do with the MS testing framework is going to need a connection to the TFS server. In the interim you can set your tests to email you the HTML, and manually attach the files to the test cases, but you don't want to be doing that for any length of time.

The only way I know is the Excel method. Sorry.

comment Disable a pop up rendered in FF and not with IE
This is a bit too generic to really answer the question, which is how to disable unwanted popups when creating the Firefox driver. Coding a check for firefox and handling the popup there is more of a workaround, as is modifying the firefox settings to block popups.

comment Using Selenium (C#) how do I select an item from a drop-down list
For an answer to an old question that's already got an accepted answer, you really need to do more than give a single line of code as your answer.

comment What are some good software QA community websites?
If you have any affiliation with this site, you should mention it. If you don't, for an answer like this you should be saying so.

This does not provide an answer to the question. To critique or request clarification from an author, leave a comment below their post.

comment Is there any tool available to automate iOS default (Email) app?
Could you expand on how xcode could potentially solve this problem? Otherwise, this is more of a comment than an answer.

comment In ALM - Test plan - is it possible to show test cases list in grid view also, just like Requirement, defects or test lab tab's
It would be more helpful if you gave more information than this. You may have answered the OP's first question, but you've given no information about their second question.
