I am getting this vulnerability and after some research, I found that this issue is just relating to IIS6 and lower. Is this true or is there a patch for IIS7.5?

CVE-2000-0649 CVE-2002-0419
Web Server Internal IP address or network name available

I have a list of HTML links in a text file, one link per line. Links are of two kinds. One type is  to a page, for example <a href="http://wtov9.com/weather/">whatever</a>. The other type executes a program, as in <a href="http://www.MySite.com/cgi-bin/MyProgram.exe?term1=something&term2=or+other&Submit=&">whatever</a>.

Suppose there are a couple of hundred such links, and I do not want to check them by pasting them one at a time into a browser. Suppose further that this is a high frequency task that should require minimal human involvement. All I need to know is  which (if any) of the links are invalid, that is, instances where the result would be a 404 "not found" or other failure message.

Question 1: Is there any way to automate this task using a browser such as Firefox?

Question 2: If "No" to question 1, is there a technique that I could use within a C++ program that I write to accomplish the same goal? What functions would be involved? I am using Windows 7 Professional and Visual Studio 2010. Ideally this would be a simple console program launched on a PC from the command line which reads in the list of links from a text file and reports the results in a new text file.

Does anyone have a manual process on how to manually monitor for source control software that prevents code from being released without authorization.

I am looking at options for a tool for this purpose but in the meantime does anyone have any suggestion on how to do this manually on how frequently is rational?

Hi Experts:

I have an Apple Macbook.  I am not very familiar with Macbooks.  I am a windows person.  I need help in configuring Eclipse with Selenium webdriver on Macbook.

I understand that first I must have Java installed.  When I click on Apple > About this Mac > More info > Software applications: I find among the list the following Java entries:
•      Java VisualVM
•      Java Web Start

I started with installing Java on my mac first, before installing Eclipse and then, Selenium, are these two items sufficient?

The reason I ask is that on my other mac I have the following items under Apple > About this Mac > More info > Software applications:
•      Java Preferences
•      Java VisualVM
•      Java Web Start
•      Java(™) Platform SE binary
•      Java(™)Update Checker
•      Java(™) Converter
•      Javaeoutil
•      JavaMOnitor
•      javaPLaybackManager


Can you please guide me thru the step by step process to setup selenium webdriver on Macbook?

Thanks,

I am moving into a new position within IT. My main job will be testing new applications as well updates and patches. My assumption when it comes to testing is that I should have all of the computer models that we deploy to staff as test units. In my case, we use Dell products and we have about 5 different models that are deployed to staff. Unfortunately, I cannot get access to all 5 of these models to test apps on. My question is, how do other IT departments do testing to make sure that app/update deployments work on all systems? What is the best way to do testing without asking staff to give up their computer for a few minutes? Are there ways to simulate specific laptop models using virtualization software?

Just looking for feedback and information regard source control software specfically

git
mercurial
SVN

We have a multi-generational workforce, age range 20-50 years old, working on three different OS
iOS
Windows (different versions form xp-7)
Linux (Ubuntu)

Which is easiest for non-technical users?
Users need to be able to manage their own files, merge, and push content.

Is there one more suited to designers vs developers?

Is there one more suited to developers vs designers?

Which has the best GUI tools for Windows? MAC?

Any concerns over the software becoming obsolete? no longer being maintained?

I understand that "easiest", "more suited to", and "best" are opinions, and everyone has one, but I'm just looking for some feedback/input.

We currently have GIT in place, but the designers will not use it, we were given a terrible command line demo and the designers were not comfortable with using it.

Any input would be appreciated.


Thanks.

I run a reports that shows the enquiries received. The enquiries are then turned into quotations. Some enquiries have quotations attached others don't so to overcome this (because I need to know the status of the quotations) I have this sql expression ISNULL("QuoteStatus"."Status",''). This ensures that enquiries which don't have quotations attached still appear on the report as outstanding
However it falls down when another customer is added to an existing enquiry where a quotation has been sent. In this instance the enquiry doesn't appear on the outstanding. The enquiry has already been booked in. A quotation has been generated so that quotation isn't outstanding. However another customer asks for a quotation and this is added to the enquiry but no quotation is made. This doesn't appear as an outstanding quotation. enquiries with just one customer and no quote do appear thanks to the sql expression above, However when an enquiry has two customers one with a quotation complete and one without a quotation it doesn't appear as an outstanding quotation
I enclose a copy of the report

My company is thinking about allowing employees to work from home.  They want a way to monitor that they are working without being super intrusive.  I found products like Spector360 but that is way too much info and would make the employees upset.  Is there a software that tracks that work is being done but not track every keystroke, click, and page view?

Even though this has pretty much been asked before, I don't see anything very recent.  What automated testing tools are available for building GUI regression tests that are testing Windows applications?  We are now building our software using agile, and are quickly getting overrun with the need for automated regression testing.

I develop on an ASP.NET MVC web applicaiton that uses Test Studio from Telerik for automated testing. But now we need language localization into a handful of languages.

I need to be able to create an automated test for a page, then run that test against various languages. I do not want, as Telerik has suggested, to create a diferent project for each language and need to support a distinct automated test for each language. One test is not the problem. It's thousands of tests, each with many attributes being tested.

Does anyone know of a company or open source project which combines language localization with automated testing, so I can maximize the efficiency of tesing?

Thanks!

Greetings,

I'm looking for some time tracking software for measuring web development testing cycles and am curious if you have any recommendations or experience with software of this nature. I'm look to track overall testing time at different stages to produce estimates and to show an individuals contribution to a project. I want it to be very easy to use so that we don't spend a lot of time tracking time and have options to track different metrics, like time spent retesting a work item due to failures etc. The main goal will be to maximize efficient use of test resources.

Thank you for your time.

Hello,

I was looking for some insight as to what variables should be considered when testing a site for device responsive functionality. I'm aware of tools such as Screenfly that will display a given site in various common resolutions, but in terms of functionality across different mobile platforms and browsers, how wide should the testing tendrils reach in order to assure sufficient coverage? Naturally hands-on testing can't be performed with every phone and tablet on the market - but perhaps there is some reliable emulation software that could be used in lieu of some devices?

Any advice on the matter would be greatly appreciated.

Hello

A client has asked us if our web based application can "integrate with service assurance tools ... for systems management ... and alerting". We don't do this explicitly but I suspect that a range of service assurance tools do this with MS SQL Server 2012 (which our app sits on) already.

When I search online for "SQL Server" and "Service Assurance Tools" I don't get any helpful results. Can anyone help me to find some info on how other people have done this with SQL Server (even an older version of SQL Server) please?

All I want to be able to do is say to my client "our app doesn't explicitly integrate with these tools, but it sits on MS SQL Server and these are examples of how other people have done it..."

Thanks in advance!

Hello,
We recently had an issue with a previous staff member leaving our organization, upon his departure we found he built our crystal reports server, services, cmc into his account. I was able to change the odbc connections, services, etc to run through a standard service account. The CMC and citrix environment that we run logicity through is now working normally, but locally we are experiencing running issues for both myself and one other trying to run crystal reports xi r2 to edit, run, create new reports tying to these same databases. Anyone have any advice on what to check or review?

Hello,
This question is more of a general question, and yet I could ask the "Test Validation" group, so I will give it some points.
Question: Are there any Ranores Experts here at Experts-Exchange?

What has happened to the "Test and Validation" zone?

I have been given the task to create a UAT test script plan.  I need assistance on how to complete the script.  I am new to writing test scripts and do not know where or how to interpret the information from the use case to enter in the test plan.  I have attached a copy of the reporting requirements where the test plan is being created from and the a copy of the test plan template in excel format.  I would like to know what I need just a couple of examples of what to enter in the template and I can do the rest.  Thank you for any assistance you can provide.
