How does this answer the OP's question?

comment Where can I download TestNG-6.8.5 JavaDoc Jar file?
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it can be answered with a simple Google search

comment How to create test plan when there is one website and one tester
You need to provide more information: simply pointing the OP to a test tool is not sufficient.

comment “Conventional” Test cases in an Agile environment?
@Mercfh - I'm currently using Rally, which isn't optimal. I've used MS Test Manager, TestLink, Word, and Excel in the past. I'm discussing all types of higher level tests: acceptance tests, functional tests, and so forth. I generally try to keep them short and cover the essentials - press this button, click this link style tends to get out of date fast, is boring for manual testers, and takes far too long to write compared to the benefit received.

comment Advanced selenium webdriver tutorial/course
While this link may answer the question, it is better to include the essential parts of the answer here and provide the link for reference. Link-only answers can become invalid if the linked page changes.

comment Advanced selenium webdriver tutorial/course
This doesn't really say anything about what the linked videos do. You need to edit your answer to give more information about the content of the videos.

comment Visual Studio 2012 or MTM for Administrative reports?
MTM test suites are viewable in the TFS web portal - which does support export to Office tools. Test cases can be queried like any work item. Using the API seems excessive to me when MTM can't operate without TFS and the information can be accessed through TFS.

comment Visual Studio 2012 or MTM for Administrative reports?
Why would the TFS API work better for the OP? Customized reports that can be exported are available without the TFS API - you need to say what the API adds to make this a useful answer.

comment Website with complex functionalities?
Could you give some more information about the nature of the site you linked? We prefer to see explanation in the body of an answer with links used for reference purposes, because that way the important information is present even if the linked site changes or is taken down.

comment Why I am getting 'jira (Interface: soap) Bug id' if I am integrating with REST
You may get a better response from Stack Overflow - this is more of a programming question than a testing question.

comment How to manage test data in database
"reset" varies. It can be restoring a snapshot, or it can be a script that removes anything other than the settings/data you want. Where I work it's running an import process that sets everything for a single company within the database to the canonical values.

comment What to do with Limited Time/Testers - What is most Important?
I use Rally - which I find rather unfriendly for test case management but that's what the company requires so that's what I do. I don't use a fraction of the detail information that could be entered for test cases - usually not much more than a title and a description.

comment Need more information on basic software development terms for non-computer-scientist
What in the definitions you found when you searched did you find unsatisfactory? I can tell you now your statistical efforts will be misleading at best.

comment Testing Cordova apps and bluetooth
What specifically do you need to test? The interface to the custom hardware? The display of the custom hardware's responses? Whether the custom hardware receives responses you send? Do you need to automate testing the full loop in a single test set (I hope not), or can you automate the different pieces and run a few manual tests to cover the interconnections? Please update your question with more information.

comment “Conventional” Test cases in an Agile environment?
@Mercfh, you might want to work with your developers for this: if they have a way you can run the acceptance tests headless, you can write them in a Cucumber-like language and they can help/teach you to code the details. You'll still need to decide what should be automated, but it will be a starting point.

Automating everything isn't possible, but you can get close depending on the application and the requirements. More in a separate answer.

Seconding the automation approach here. That's how I've dealt with similar problems in the past.

comment Test methodologies applicable for web based and not for desktop
@NielsvanReijmersdal - I've never run into a desktop application hosted as you describe. The applications I've worked with have run off a database hosted in a central server with multiple client installations run on machines in the company intranet.
