comment How much should a tester understand and rely on implementation details?
I don't understand what that means? You want them to test with fewer plans for you to review? What does the number of test plans have to do with understanding code or relying on implementation details?

comment How much should a tester understand and rely on implementation details?
Good answer. Every tester could test more. But that often takes more time. If they add timing and performance tests to their toolbox, will you as the manager give them more testing time? Or will they have to omit other kinds of tests?

Ok. So you are the manager, and you wonder if your team should be testing differently than they currently do. So - how are the results? Without regard to how they test, how effective are their tests? Are they finding bugs, or are important bugs making their way into production?

comment Invalid xml data generator
What volume of (invalid) XML is needed? Have you considered using a tool to generate valid XML, then modifying it (perhaps manually) to make it invalid in the ways you need?

comment What is a good website to hack around using Selenium?
@I19 - The difference is a human using their site versus a tool. Websites are designed for business purposes, not for your testing pleasure.

comment How to convince your colleagues of pairwise testing?
They are asking for "proof that these pairwise testcases suffice to make sure our software is running well". Why are you worried about "find all errors" and "less effort than exhaustive testing"? Neither of those answer the question being asked.

comment How are dependencies dealt with when writing tests?
This is a reasonable approach, but as always, it depends. If you are in a time-critical situation, and the risk of finding bugs is low, it may be preferable to just execute Test #3 = A + B + C.
