comment Need automation tool for web-based Flex application with XML
So to be clear you're looking for a list of tools you can use to test Flex? Or you want to get Selenium or Sahi to work to test Flex? Either way, you might need to provide more input to get a truly good answer.

comment What is the Real Business Value of Software Testing in an IT Project?
@PaulDonny My current weight in gold is a little over $3 million (80,000 grams * $38/gram), which depending on the organization is actually a seemingly healthy QA annual budget. Nice estimate.

comment What is the Real Business Value of Software Testing in an IT Project?
As a terrible developer myself, I wish I had testers. Our biggest issue is getting business users to test our code, and even than most of them only do 'happy-path' testing.

comment SeleniumIDE Issue - js alert() is not detected by IDE
Varun, the link may answer the question, but it's preferred that answers stand on their own instead of needing the link to be followed. Links should support already good answers, not be the entire answer. Also, if you're linking to something you yourself wrote you should include that in your answer. (Including the other answer that is letter for letter identical to this one...)

comment testing an nfc application
Nitin, I agree with your last couple sentences, but I kind of feel that's a given. I think the OP is really asking about how to achieve those goals. Could you expand on specifics about how you'd go about doing that?

comment Take screen shots using selenium webdriver
Altaf interesting, it doesn't use the captureEntireScreenshot you mentioned in your answer. Also know that you can edit your answer instead of posting a new one. I recommend you pick one to edit the code into and delete the other.

comment Take screen shots using selenium webdriver
Hi Atlaf, could you write a small code snippet? Is it as simple as your answer makes it seem? I mean, maybe it is. But some code would be useful. Also, what do you mean by "this has to be written manually"?

comment How to close pop up window in Selenium webdriver?
I think this has potential to be a great answer if you could elaborate on it a bit more. Are we supposed to be following the XPath in your screenshot?

comment Responsive website testing tools
Gaurav could you elaborate on what this good at, pros and cons, personal experience, etc? Link only answers are generally too vague for acceptance.

comment Website & Web Application
That might seem like it, but that's actually not an off-topic reason, even if they were the same question. And although the content is the same (actually, that one is fleshed out much more thoroughly) this is tagged with manual-testing which makes me assume Mahesh is looking at this from a testing perspective instead of a terminology perspective. If anything, it's a close for "unclear what you're asking" because how it relates to testing isn't clear in the question.

comment Take screen shots using selenium webdriver
That's a lot better. This is an answer that stands on its own, and then links to the blog for further information. As a side note, I fixed the formatting (code blocks need to have 4 spaces in front of them, go look at the source (edit) to see how I did it) so it looks a little cleaner. But that's great, thanks a bunch!

comment Take screen shots using selenium webdriver
The fact that you make it clear that this is your post (and not just random spam) is a positive sign, and is appreciated. One note I'd make is that we tend to discourage link-only answers. Could you make this answer stand on its own, with a few code samples and small explanation, retaining the link back to your blog for further reading? Thanks!

comment Turn to automation QA process
This is going to be very difficult to answer. What I strongly recommend is you just do whatever you can. Try to tackle a problem that you think might be easy (compared to the rest) and still have a lot of benefit to your automation process. When you run into trouble, ask a new question. Specific questions are much, much easier and more helpful to everyone than broad ones!

comment When we use adhoc testing? Which model is used for this…?
Hi Mahesh. I'm not sure this question is currently in a state that we can truly answer. What is the goal you're trying to accomplish? What is the background for the question (what prompted it)? I think this needs more information before it can be truly helpful to both you and future visitors.

comment How to test a toaster? (interview question)
+1 for a requirements-first strategy. The interviewer might say "everyone knows the requirements of a toaster" but things aren't tested for the sake of being tested. You test, you get a result, and you compare that result against a known requirement. Even exploratory testing, eventually, has to make its way back to a set of known requirements to be very useful. (Barring the obvious, toaster starts nuclear war, probably an error condition you want to avoid...)

comment how to pick a date from a calendar?
Gaurav, I'm noticing you're getting a lot of negative review over this answer. I think that's because we prefer answers to stand alone, i.e. not solely supported by an external link. Would you be able to get the relevant sections from your link and put it here, while leaving the link to allow future visitors to get more information than is strictly necessary to answer the question if that want to do more research? Thanks!

@razizcool4all there's a Jenkins plugin for mailer, you would just add the mailer option to the end of the job.

comment Generic Automation Framework
Hmm.. I'm trying to think of any, any script you could write that, short of literally implementing human AI, could test (in an automated fashion) all of Amazon.com, tcgplayer.com, and my wife's online furniture store. They're three sites on three platforms. You might be able to come up with manual test scripts but when it comes to being automated? For any e-commerce website? I just don't see how it's possible.
