comment My team codes in one language, I want to test using another. What can go wrong?
You know, I only ever hear "what can go wrong" in movies, right before something really bad happens...

comment Transition from all manual testing to automated testing
Big +1 for simple stuff first. If you try to automate the more difficult tests, when they fail and there's something wrong in your test (as opposed to what you're testing) the naysayers will be all up in your face. "A ha! We told you this convoluted testing thing was faulty! Allow us to ignore the 50 bug reports already submitted and focus on this one, complicated thing that failed!" And honestly, I'm not exaggerating...

comment Is my test a perf unit functional smoke test or something else?
I'm having difficulty extracting your problem from your question. Perhaps you could rephrase it or add a clarification exactly what the problem is you're trying to solve?

comment What is Functional Show Stopper in Bug Tracking?
I'm guessing "shop term" is a "shop term" that you came up with in your particular location or locale? :-) A quick Google search came up with nothing but offers to buy life insurance.

comment Learning about Ethical Hacking
I could see security being useful too, but I would expect a good tester to know a thing or two about it. Even if the intent is different, the goal is still to make the application do something unintended.

comment Automatically only run the fast tests?
It would seem a prerequisite of doing this automatically would be to running the tests to see if they take a "long time" or not. It also would require periodic updates to the "long time"ness of a test to ensure it has not since lost the "long time" state.

comment Test cases for find and replace function of notepad
Welcome to SQA.se, rohit! I notice a distinct lack of a question here. There are a great number of different ways to test, and it would be much better if you could provide some more details: background of why you wrote it, what you hope your tests will accomplish, how comprehensive these tests are intended to be, and the like. If you edit this post, post a comment to let me know so I can reopen it, or feel free to post a new question that... actually has a question :-) One of the hallmarks of a good question is showing what research you've already done so others can pick up where you left off.

comment List and role of different types of testing environments
Indeed, I agree with user246. Provide some background as to why you're asking the question. One of the hallmarks of a good question is evidence of self research, which this question is most definitely lacking.

comment List and role of different types of testing environments
I have seen many places who separate out the smoke tests into a new environment called "Staging" - it makes an environment as close to a copy of production as realistically possible and you run your tests here. Ironically at my present firm, we use two production systems as staging on the bi-weekly-Tuesday before we send it to all the production systems on bi-weekly-Thursday.

comment Calculate peak concurrent users on a website
Personally, I would parse the logs (assuming you're keeping them) and find the minute-sliding-window of time that had the highest number of hits in that minute. Then I'd add 20% or so. You can break it down into 5 sec or 10 sec window or whatever you feel is appropriate, but going off of real world data is always best. What if those 1000 vistors in that hour all were hitting the site at 9:17 AM because the new deal-of-the-day was posted at 9:16 and they just got the facebook update or something? That's the kind of scenario your load testing has to handle.

comment Which tools should I start with?
+1 - Having the knowledge of what makes good tests is something you need to run/build test with any tool. It's also something you need for when you're not using a tool. You can give a man a fish and feed him for a day because we rather instinctively know how to eat. You can't give a man a fishing pole and expect the same result. (In fact, it's very likely he'll do little more than tangle up the lines of the other fishermen...)

comment What kind of testing is ApprovalTests.com doing and are there other similar frameworks?
There's a lack of formal definitions for most of the SQA field, unfortunately.

comment What kind of testing is ApprovalTests.com doing and are there other similar frameworks?
Something inside me says {automated} and {user} are mutually exclusive. It might be automated acceptance testing, but not automated user acceptance testing. Still seems appealing though.
