comment Smoke testing by Dev team
The work of everyone is to assist in the production of high quality software. The sooner errors get into the hands of developers, the better it is for everyone. Developer initiated smoke tests help prevent "Infinite Defect Methodology" The schedule was merely a checklist of features waiting to be turned into bugs. In the post-mortem, this was referred to as "infinite defects methodology" Source, scroll to #5

comment Four eyes principle in a distributed team
@AdrianHHH Four eyes is not a terrible name. A very common expression says "let's get another set of eyes on this". Naturally, someone with one or no eyes can still be "another set of eyes". Most (as in 99,997 out of 100,000) people are born with two eyes (even if non functioning). C'mon now. Generally, people prefer general neutral terms, and "four eyes" fits the bill.

comment How to Implement Page Object and Page Factory Pattern in Selenium Webdriver?
I'm confused by this answer. I'm not sure if you're saying "This is how you can do it:" or if you're asking "Is it possible to do it this way?" If it's the latter, you'll want to ask a new question, preferably with a bit more background and context so the question can be answered most effectively.

comment Is there a specific screen resolution that should be used when Mapping objects?
I can't help but feel that multiple resolutions is part of why we automate tests, so we can run the same series of tests on multiple resolutions to make sure our system is still usable. So my gut instinct tells me no, there isn't.

comment Standard to take source of software
Ali, are you a QA agent of some kind? Or is this general programming. There's a lot of programmers here, but questions about dealing with programmers without a QA slant are going to be best suited to another Stack Exchange site.

comment Apigen Netbeans
A couple things to address here: First, is this QA related? Or just general apigen related? If it's general apigen we'll want to move it to a more appropriate site. If it's QA related, could you describe that relationship? Second, you'll need to be more specific about what you did, what the result was. I suspect this belongs on another site, but none of the other sites would be willing to take it in its current form.

comment Function to write 2 D Array from java into Excel
Val, I'm curious if this is a SQA question or more of a general programming question. Could you comment on how it relates to QA specifically? Otherwise, I'll be more than happy to send it to StackOverflow if that's more appropriate.

comment Should I take interview of manual tester who has more experience than me
Just some food for thought: if no one ever hired people with more experience than them, how would the people with the most experience ever get a job?

Mostly grammar changes. It could probably use more changes but this is a good start.

comment Should Black-box software testers do Root-Cause analysis of every defect they report?
I'm having a real hard time with this answer. Firstly, I don't see why this doesn't apply to "established" companies (perhaps more so since startups tend to be lacking in the QA department.) Secondly, I'm not sure "ask your manager" is a good answer - for all we know the OP is the Quality Manager and is looking for guidance to help set the PPPs for the firm. Perhaps you could better align your answer to the question at hand: if you were said QM how would you approach this problem?

comment Load-Testing an SMS application
If you can only gather say 100 numbers, and you need to test it for 10000 texts, what about uh... just doing the 100 numbers 100 times in a row?

comment Online test platform for sockets
I suppose you could put it external, but you'd have to be aware that anyone could reach it then. But that's exactly what you want, I think.
