comment JUnit-friendly framework for production monitoring
You're looking for something that wraps it all? I mean, there's open source SSH libraries you could use, and you could use them inside a JUnit test.

comment Usability versus fail-fast dilemma
I believe what he's asking is "Is there a canonical term for the decision of weighing assertive logic that fails quickly versus relaxed logic that trusts the user to work it all out in the end?" It may not be appropriate for our site though, as this isn't so much a testing question as a general programming question. I'll ping the guys in Programmers and see if they want it.

comment How to test facebook likes using webdriver without being flagged as a bot?
Considering their entire business model relies around having an accurate representation of what people like and don't like, it makes sense why they're so adamant about making it right.

comment When is a defect a duplicate?
This makes a lot of sense. If I change the code to get a person's name (say to always return "John Doe" instead of their real name) I would expect this to break hundreds of test cases.

comment difference between installation testing and compatibility testing?
Hi Selva, there are two key hallmarks of a great question missing here. The first is prior research effort: what steps have you taken to answer the question already? This lets answers know where to pick up where you left off. The second is the problem to be solved. Stack Exchange is about more than just answering questions, it's about solving problems. What problems involving Installation Testing and Compatibility Testing have you run into in which knowing their differences would help? Often times, half of solving the problem is asking the right questions.

comment How to extract the Safari extension from the base code?
I never thought it wasn't a great answer! I just wanted to make sure I understood what it was doing, that's all. :-)

comment How to extract the Safari extension from the base code?
Welcome to SQA, Rob! If I understand your post correctly, your premise is that if Selenium can't get the space it's asking for, we should try reducing how much it asks for?

comment Why LR tool is not able to capture browser rendering time?
I think you have two questions here. One is "Why can't LoadRunner capture render time?" and another is "How can I capture render time?" The answers are the same iff LoadRunner can actually capture render time.

comment How do you calculate the number of virtual concurrent users to use in a load test given data on actual site traffic?
It's certainly not bad to tell people about relevant tools that can help them solve their problems. I'm not sure this is entirely relevant though. Consider the OP to be like a science experiment. He would like to take existing data, and calculate based on that data what his theoretical limits are, and then test those limits. Your app may actually be a piece of that pie, but is fairly tangential to the question.

comment Use case testing tools and methods
So your questions are "Is use case testing standard practice?" and "Do tools exist to support use case testing graphically?"
