comment Is it recommended to document how selenium automation tests are laid out?
+1 for refactoring. Logically designed classes and methods with good names make the code much more readable - and the refactoring isn't that hard to do, once you've done the hard work once of figuring out what it does.

Well, what have you tried so far? What works, and what doesn't? Are there any particular steps you need help with?

comment Pre-load database for testing
@SamWoods: You should post that as an answer, because that's exactly the solution I'd endorse.

comment Our company needs to perform automation testing for charts like pie chart, bar chart, which testing tool I should go with?
Have you been able to use it to validate more than just the tool tip; for example the shapes, colours, sizes of the data displayed in the graph?

Do you get the same misalignment in every browser? Also, when you view the HTML what do you see?

comment Assessing the quality of a heuristic sorting system
Well, it depends on the customer requirements. How accurate is the heuristic expected to be? 100% accurate? Or is it OK for it to be 80% accurate as long as it's fast?

comment Industry Average Bug Fix Cost
This doesn't really take into account the different costs: for example if you have to fix a bug in production code the costs of a whole new release and deployment.

comment Is it possible to automate Silverlight in windowless mode?
Thanks Dmitry; I'm afraid I can't confirm whether TestComplete would work on the app I was testing, as I am on a different job now.

comment validations for text fields like country, State, cities
I don't think there is one single answer to this question; the appropriate validation depends on your application, what kind of data it can work with and is willing to accept. In any case, I don't think this is really a question about testing is it?

comment How to test the field with different languages?
If you use MS Word's Insert Symbol dialog, you can find everything there; I've used it to keep a file on hand with some good examples for frequent testing. Another source I use is generator.lorem-ipsum.info, where you can generate text with foreign characters and accents very quickly.

comment Web application testing on Mobile browser
Well, that depends on what devices your users will have, and how risk-averse you need to be. Do you have any more background about your situation?
