comment When can we say a defect is “Open”?
Seems reasonable. Every shop uses different words and more/fewer stages. For example, in my shop we distinguish VERIFIED (the tester has verified the fixed bug), from CLOSED (the fixed code has been released to Production).

comment Is it fair to report a bug discovered during code review without performing a test?
When you do report a "potential bug" but haven't actually performed a test, what happens when the bug is fixed? Will you test it then? Or just read the code and call it good enough?

comment Learning resources for Performance Testing and LoadRunner
I've assigned people into roles that were new to them at times. Each time, I provide a path for learning - through classes, seminars, mentoring, or combinations of all of them.

comment Learning resources for Performance Testing and LoadRunner
"Recently i got an opportunity to work in performance testing (HP LoadRunner). However there are not much resources around to learn loadrunner." Has your company contacted HP for LoadRunner training?

comment Where to focus testing? On integration level or unit level?
dzieciou, if I asked you "how long does it take to write an application?" wouldn't you want to know a bit about the application's requirements before you guesstimated? Testing is like that. allthingsquality.com/2011/01/estimation-guesstimation-and.html

comment Dedicated or cross projects test team?
When I started at my current company, we staffed up for three concurrent threads of development (corresponding to two product lines, and one for infrastructure enhancements). We had little juggling. Over six years later and we are attempting to handle 8 or more projects at any given time, with no additional staff. Juggling happens constantly now. Much more challenging these days, and not as much fun. Oh well...

comment One tool to rule them all
It appears that all of Gerrard's inline comments in this question and the answers have been removed. It makes the remaining comments rather difficult to understand - like hearing one side of a telephone conversation. That's unfortunate...

As I would with any "Requirements", I'm striving for understanding before trying to offer solutions. But I'll stop. Here are links to trials of some decent performance/load tools: allthingsquality.com/2010/04/… Good luck.
