comment Is FitNesse the only DSL for Selenium, or is there another DSL available?
As a side note, I have always found things that "allow a non-programmer to <task typically done by a programmer>" end up using more resources (time, money) than they save, even if it meant hiring or contracting an actual programmer.

comment Testing with no QA team in an agile development environment
+1 for 'done done', not just 'done'. That's been a constant thorn in my side when working with other developers when they are more focused on the 'done' part than the 'done done' part.

comment How close is functional testing related to security testing?
Generally, we expect answers to have more than just a link. They should have insight directed at the question being asked. It's fine to support your answer with references, and it's strongly encouraged to isolate the key points in your answer and say "for further reading, check out this and this ". But just a link is strongly discouraged.

comment Excel Add In for Quality Center won't run in 64 bit excel - is there a workaround?
We had a number of things break when upgrading to Office 2010 on our webapps. Granted they're homebrew, not HP, but as yet there's no workarounds we've found. I suspect it is a fundamental change in the API which can only be fixed by changing how the tool itself interacts with Excel. I know this isn't very encouraging :-(

comment Does writing “Given” “When” “Then” BDD style test cases scale up to larger, end-to-end scenarios
The effectiveness of a test only ever comes into play when it fails. The test is supposed to tell you what fails in your system. The more complex a test is, the less information you have about what is actually broken when it fails.

Could you perhaps elaborate on this a bit more? What is the site's purpose, and how it relates to QTP?

comment Can I (in Eclipse/java) automate the logging of all enters and leaves into or out of all functions, including library ones?
I don't think your assessment of a question without code is considered worse quality is accurate, personally. Worse quality would be questions without context. Code easily provides context, but you've managed to provide plenty of context in your question. Not that this question isn't also appropriate here, but I think it would be just fine there too.

comment 1.5 Million lines of code. 0 tests. Where should we start?
While I happen to not work at this firm anymore, this is something I will be coming back to any time I need to implement testing on a system. I also like how this applies not only to the OE environment, but to be more useful to future readers, it applies to practically any environment. I like it so much I'm changing this to my accepted answer (not to slight Tangurena!).

@xster To be honest, this is a very common issue. Most people I've talked with have shared similar experiences at at least one place they've worked.
