comment Testing interactions with external systems
+1 When your mock fails on you, you only have yourself to blame. It also begs the question "If you can't mock it, how do you REALLY know you're doing it right on your end?"

By build.xml do you mean Ant?

comment How do you calculate your return on investment on automated tests?
Should the answer change depending on who asks the question? It would seem it's rather objectively asked, which means it wouldn't matter.

So, according to meta, only answers can be made CW now. Interesting. Moderators can still make questions CW, but I wouldn't say it's worth a flag :)

Edit: hmm, I went to one of my questions. It looks like the CW link is gone. Awkward...

comment Measuring test performance when there is high variance
@alexb Certainly agree (as long you're trying to measure performance, not functionality.) In fact, running the tests many times can give you more than just a better indicator of what is average: it may yield slow-downs and memory leaks you wouldn't have otherwise found.

If you edit the post, you should see a checkbox for "Community Wiki" near the bottom. Essentially, it gives a clear indicator to others that "This isn't an 'answerable' question, but is one that will still be very useful to the community."

Sounds like a prime candidate for Community Wiki :)

comment Should QA be able to code tests?
@testerab That is an excellent pearl of wisdom. The best tester is usually the one who is best at testing, just like the best soccer player on astro-turf is usually the best soccer player on grass and on dirt. (Although I wouldn't play soccer on astro-turf... just sayin')

So automated functional testing then. :-)
