Any recommendations?

I've trialled:

  1. Xray
  2. Kanoah
  3. QTest Manager -  this is very similar to HP ALM
  4. JIRA - create a new issue type in it
  5. Hip Test
  6. qTest Scenario
  7. Qmetric
  8. Test Collab
  9. Test Rail
  10. Test Link

My organisation currently uses HP ALM.

I'm doing a 508 testing on a website using JAws tool. I'm required to write test cases based on that. How can you write them using JAWS?

Hello Everyone,

My experience has given me the ability to apply technology, in many forms. As a systems administrator my responsibilities have included support of various operating systems, scripting languages, vistualization software, web applications, etc. I have related course work in Computer Programming (C, C++, Java). Unfortunately, I dont have a Computer Science Degree. I'm interested in contiuing my education in Computer Programming to eventually get a degree.

Would a hiring manager consider my previous work experience for a QA position? 


I am curenlty working in an agile environment as a manual tester and having a hard time in explaining the user stories to the developers so they can implement it properly. Althought the user stories are self explained but still they come to me and ask many questions. I don't have enough time to explain and then test it.

It seems that a popular approach to QA automation is a quick start to cover a most critical area with automated tests ASAP and then proceed automating other areas of testing. This second phase requires more dedicated tool(s). So, what features are most important for such a tool so that it could be useful for your web application?

Each QA automation team has its own specific priorities when choosing a test automation tool to facilitate the UI regression testing process. But what approach is more popular: a lightweight solution which is simple and quick grasp (but will not cover all your regression testing scope) or a full-scale test automation framework which can do much more but will require lots of time to create and maintain the test coverage?

All of us have our own view of what MUST be the proper New Product Development phases. I believe those are:

1. Ideation: Come-up with an idea you think it could be a market winner.

2. Patenting: Evaluate the merit of getting Intellectual Property (IP) protection for your new product idea.

3. Design: Develop non or partially functioning models of your new product idea and start soliciting user feedback.

4. Feasibility Proof: Perform various technical/business studies to determine IF your new product idea is feasible.

Hi guys,

am new to the Specflow automation tool. Is there a user friendly gui  extension or bolt on available in Visual Studio for aiding the automation of test cases?



My preference would be tools that have record and playback functionality.  There are lots of automated tools for Windows, but only a few for CentOS Linux.

We are looking at testing tools and Selenium was recommended. So we are trying to find out what the pros and cons of using Selenium are for automated testing from testers who have been using it.

Suggest few of the most preferred testing tools which are used to test apps based on REST APIs.
