comment Function to write 2 D Array from java into Excel
Hi Rajesh, so this definitely needs to be on www.stackoverflow.com` instead of sqa here. Also, when doing so, instead of just throwing code up, when you ask your question there, make sure to include what you feel it's doing wrong and what you want it to do - that will help get the right attention you need. I suggest tagging it with [java] and [poi].

Abodeqa is this something that can be mavenized?

comment Recommended Test Suite management software
Which of these criteria are most important? Which are dealbreakers and which are nice-to-haves? This is a subjective question (it's an opinion piece, in a sense) but that's not entirely bad. We just have to remember Good Subjective, Bad Subjective principles.

comment while running the code its not finding the element with provided xpath
Hi Deepthi. I do agree with Niels and Panda that this is currently unclear. I would encourage you to edit more information in. However, we're currently trying to decide exactly what that information needs to be. For now, I'd say stepping back a bit and adding code, and more text describing what you're trying to do and how it's not working. And if you want, follow the discussion here meta.sqa.stackexchange.com/questions/320

comment Smoke testing by Dev team
I really like this answer. It seems to imply that if the smoke test the developers run is big enough that you think QA should be doing it, you're not really doing a smoke test anymore.

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 manual testing of a Registration form
Are you asking what do you do when neither you nor developers are able to reproduce the error you found once? Perhaps something similar to sqa.stackexchange.com/questions/5452/65 ?

comment how to following program and write the exact output for the following inputs
Couple big problems here. The first problem is that this is general programming, while we are all about QA questions. The second is perhaps even harder to get around: there's nothing to answer here. You mention exact output but don't say what that output is supposed to be. I'm sure the folks at [StackOverflow](stackoverflow.com) (of which I am also one!) would love to help but without more detail this is really hard to justify moving over to them. I would encourage you to ask there, but to elaborate more on your problem. Code is good, but they aren't a complete question. :)

comment what is difference between component testing,unit testing, functionality testing
Depending on who you ask, it's possible these mean different things to different people, and in some cases these mean the same things to different people. We live in a world where terms can blend and change meaning in the blink of an eye. With an open ended question like this, I really feel it should be put on hold until it can be made clear what problem you're trying to solve and how this difference-awareness is relevant. So could you relate this question to the problem you're trying to solve? That's the best way to answer what the true question is. Thanks!

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?

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?
