comment Why session is not created in Bot-Bot?
Pramod, I know it's been a while, but did you ever solve this problem? If you did, could you post a small answer? If you didn't (or you can't post a reasonable answer) do you feel the question remains useful?

comment How to Organize Tests for Software That's Already Developed?
7000 steps in an excel spreadsheet? Are they atomic? Or does the order with which you execute them matter.

comment Jenkins stops getting my unit test output from xcodebuild
@Greg I know this is a bit old, but if it's not too much trouble, would you be able to turn this into legit answer, and then accept it? I feel like this information could be useful, especially if it came from a search engine, to someone who has the same problem. If they see it has no answer, and don't bother to read the comments, they may just move on when they could have had their problem solved. Thanks!

comment Do you need to re-verify all bugs in the staging environment?
That last bullet point can't be understated. I can't tell you how many times we've pushed something from QA to staging, validated it, and then had "one minor thing" that was also requested to go to production. You hear terms like "minor", "no-impact" and "seamless" in these cases.

comment What exact software life cycle point is a point to start automated testing?
This kind of implies that there is a bucket that is "automated testing" that is homogeneous. With different kinds of automated tests (Xunit tests, front end automation, load tests) all start at different points in the life cycle, and the starting point changes drastically by paradigm.

comment performance-testing systems on virtual machines that normally run on physical machines
Do these systems currently have a QA/test environment that mirrors production (in terms of hardware) that you can run an accurate baseline off of?

comment What are the deliverables of the QA department?
As a member of the team, you're tasked with defining the deliverables of the team? To me, that seems the responsibility of the manager. That isn't to take away from the validity of the question, but these are the kinds of things that should have been laid out before the team was even created.

comment Is XenClient an effective way to jump-start testing in a Citrix environment?
Welcome to SQA, Mela. I like the question, but any time I see "best" I have to be very skeptical: how would you define best for this scenario?

comment How to report an issue to Developer about a bug that occurs seldom
As a developer, I hate getting intermittent reports. If I had more time to really work out reproduction steps, it wouldn't be so bad. Usually (and my users know this) unless it's a super-important issue, all I do for intermittent bugs is increase the logging around that area of code and hope they yield some clues. In my experience, most intermittent bugs are in parts of the code not used often (if it were used more, a pattern would have emerged!) so they tend to be low priority anyway.

comment Selecting items in a combobox using Webdriver
@dzieciou Did you actually google it? It takes you to a stack overflow post. Just because something is simple doesn't mean it isn't of value. The only thing I see wrong with the post is that it isn't immediately clear what the user's prior effort in solving the problem is, although I suspect that's what the last sentence is for.
