comment Can I import Jira tickets into redmine
@NielsvanReijmersdal Ticketing systems like JIRA, being an integral part of most QA processes, are on topic here even if being used for not-exactly-testing purposes. i.imgur.com/g0LDMxL.png

comment Jmeter error only from UNIX box. CONNECTION TIMEOUT ERROR
You say it "seems" to throw an exception. So ... it does throw an exception? :-) Which exception?

comment JMETER - run next HTTP request after first iteration is finished
I'm confused, sevdah - is this an attempt to answer your own question? I mean, answering your own question (essentially knowledge sharing) is perfectly fine!! But I'll be honest with you: I don't understand your question, and your answer is even more confusing. Could you clarify what it is you're asking, and what this answer does to answer that question? Thanks!!

comment What Are Some Examples of Why Explicit Sleep Statements Are Bad
@Sagar007 Imagine how you'd test that manually. How do you know when to move to the next step? Somehow, the human executing the test has see some trigger to know to move to the next step. Now, how do you find that trigger in an automated fashion? If something changes to a human, something would also change for the automation to pick up too.

comment How to tackle a huge bug backlog?
@JoeStrazzere That was my thought exactly. A large bug backlog is not a problem. It's a symptom.

comment Moving from release candidate to release without rebuilding the package
@Gilles I applaud your comment regarding "what do others do" not being SE friendly. That said, there are industry wide best practices (and in some cases, standards like ITIL release management) that will apply here. Usually, I'm not a fan of justifying a question based on the existence of an answer, but I believe this is canonical enough (while, strangely, not being too broad) to be a good fit. Good spot and thanks for the migration.

comment Why does ISTQB say Boundary Value Analysis is a black box technique
I 100% agree that it's a matter of symantics and not usefulness. Like most definitions, if you don't understand why it's important and how to leverage its principles, you're doing yourself (and the researchers who formalized it) a disservice.

comment Why does ISTQB say Boundary Value Analysis is a black box technique
@ilm yes it does - The second and third sentence say black box is only about functionality, not about coding. You could say it answers it poorly, but I believe this is an answer.

comment Why does ISTQB say Boundary Value Analysis is a black box technique
@dzieciou BVA is supposed to be based only on the boundaries of the requirements. The implementation may have additional boundaries that get generated, and my gut tells me those should be tested, but I don't believe those fall under the definition of BVA. Imagine an notes field built with a StringBuilder in Java. It's limited by the DB to 2000 characters, but we know StringBuilder will react differently at 16, 32, 64, 128, 256, 512, 1024 and 2048 characters due to how its implemented. We still only test 0, 1, 2000 and 2001 character strings with BVA.

comment What do I need to start from zero in automated testing?
Pratik, thank you for clarifying both your intent and your affiliation. Our policy on self-promotion (i.e. promoting something with which you are affiliated) is basically: 1) it has to be a great answer regardless of affiliation, so no "shoehorning" a promotion into a post 2) Disclose affiliation in every post in which you promote and 3) Some of your content needs to be non-promotion related, i.e. you're here for more than just promoting a product. Thanks!

Ritu, thanks for your help there! I "declined" the flags just so they wouldn't continue to count against the post. Thanks again!

comment How can I avoid conflicts running Selenium tests in parallel, when they must exercise an underlying REST API?
Krishnan, could you elaborate on what makes you answer substantially different from the other answer? It seems to go into a deeper explanation. Generally, duplicate answers are discouraged. Specifically, OP left a comment on that answer saying how it needed more, and this answer doesn't seem to address that.

comment Which test execution framework for Java has the highest test coverage?
Correct me if I'm wrong, but this question is all about "eating your own dogfood" right? What test-frameworks are, themselves, actually tested and how much so, right?
