comment Using formal methods when you test applications
I gave an answer to this, however, I think this question can be reworded. As it stands right now, it seems to be aimed at gathering a lot of opinions and anecdotal experience rather than practical knowledge.

comment How to add screen shot for pass status in UI Automation
Based upon my experience and the limited detail in the question, I answered using TestComplete as the tool. However, a targeted answer will not happen until the tool is specified.

comment Should coverage analysis be performed on test code?
+1 for pointing out that most code in test automation tests for errors and those error paths may not get exercised in a "clean" regression run.

comment Transition from all manual testing to automated testing
As an reformed automated testing evangelist, while I am a strong advocate for automated testing, I do NOT advocate doing it like most companies implement software testing: insert quality at the end by utilizing technique X in testing. Automated testing is not just another cop-out for doing GOOD software development. It is a tool, and a VERY good tool, but a tool that needs to be used properly, diligently, and wisely or it will be more of an impediment to development and less of a help.

comment What are the benefits of using dedicated testing languages for writing tests?
For this reason, I like tools that utilize standard programming language for their automation. TestComplete allows you, actually, to select from several languages (JScript, VBScript, C#, DelphiScript). The only "vender specific" stuff are the objects that they incorporate within the dev environment (much like the VCL objects you'd find in say the Delphi IDE).

comment If you could only give one book to a tester to teach them about testing, what would it be?
Would this be better converted to a community wiki? It seems that it will have a lot of different answers without one specific one emerging as "THE" answer.
