Quality assurance (QA) is a way of preventing mistakes or defects in products and systems, and avoiding problems when delivering solutions or services to customers. QA is applied to software to verify that features and functionality meet business objectives, and that code is relatively bug free prior to shipping or releasing new software products and versions. Quality assurance comprises administrative and procedural activities implemented in a quality system so that requirements and goals for a product, service or activity will be fulfilled. Two principles included in quality assurance are: "Fit for purpose" (the product should be suitable for the intended purpose); and "right first time" (mistakes should be eliminated).

Hello,

      I am looking for an free issue tracking/change management system.  I have seen similar posts on the topic, but some of them are pretty dated, so I wasn’t sure if there were some newer options available.  While the developers don’t really need any kind of collaboration, they do need to be able to see/search other employees work so the data.  The other catch is that it would have to be stored locally as the issues could contain secured information.  I am thinking a windows forms application would be functionally faster/easier to use that an internet or web app.  (copy and paste, Images, etc…)

      Lastly, I am looking for something that is easy and quick to use.  I have done some looking around and many packages offer really advanced features that we don’t currently need if it is going to make the process more cumbersome.  Most of what we do are small changes done by a 1 developer at a time.  We do a lot more volume then complexity.  Ease of use if a huge plus…  I know there are many packages out there, but what I am really looking for are some suggestions from people who have actively used a particular system and why they prefer it over others systems.

Thanks in advance!!!

Is there any java library that calculates different software metrics for classes/packages?

I do NOT need tools/plugins that calculate metrics for my projects. However, I need a java library that I can use in my project to gather metrics (programmatically) from other target projects that my application will be processing.

I have a Selenium IDE test script that I would like to run using different user agents. How can I automate the changing of the user agent between calls to the web server? (I have a list of user agents that I would ideally like to read in from a file.)
The test script is straight forward:
1 Change user user agent
2 Open web page
3 Click button
4 Submit
---repeat @1 with a new user agent

We are currently struggling with the Access template for tracking.  It works somewhat well, and we have modded it to allow for multiple companies, but it is still a bit of a bear to deal with and I just don't want to keep going down this route as we are growing.  Here are some things I want it to handle.

1. Be able to handle multiple companies (we defined them as branches, which is fine, as long as we can have the sub-grouping, so I can do the granular reports of what is the total number of computers, laptops, etc. of client 1 separate than client 2, client 3 etc.  I use QB inventory for our internal inventory as fixed assets.

2. Be able to run reports so I can do something like a life cycle reports on departments within the client company.  50% 2 year old computer, 25% 1 year old, 25% 4 year.  I do this so I can help determine budget requests and keep a single department within my clients from getting all the new computers, or if they do get them, it is a conscious decision by management.  In my access database, I just enter a purchase date, then run a report based on that date to show what hardware is 1 year, 2 year, etc.

3. Have some sort of scanner to enter information on.  Right now we manually stick a asset tag to the device, then manually write down the information, and manually enter this into the Access DB.  I want to have an droid app or physically scan device that an employee takes, scans barcode (preferably pre-printed ones that I can get done somewhere …

My company recently acquired a rather complex software product created by a single developer for a limited market. (It happens to be an MRP system, but not sure if that is relevant.) We are trying to get a handle on the functionality, code and database (none of which are well-documented) so that bug fixes and further development can be taken over by a larger team -- and get it ready for larger-scale distribution. The original developer is still available, but only on a limited basis.

Do you know of an article or book that addresses best practices or suggestions for a task such as this?  Thanks.

Hi, I work in manufacturing.  Our most recent customer requires 2D UID labels and they must adhere to Mil-Std 130.  Due to the economy, we are struggling to stay afloat and do not have a lot of money to invest in this process.  

Could anyone suggest the most cost effective way to create and verify this type of label.  I have reviewed quotes from companies that will produce the labels but they will not provide the verification data needed to comply to the Mil standard.  Is there any software available that i could use to create and verify the labels?

I am new to the mil-std for Uid labels and would appreciate any input / suggestions anyone might have.  

thanks in advance,

Hi Expert guys,
I am working on automation testing using Selenium. There is drop-down of on page, when I tried to select its value it gave me error that

Element should have been "select" but was "table"

In firebug I see it as table. The drop down is created on server side and dojo translate it into table on client browser and also create hidden field which is set value when user click on drop-down(actually there is small arrow, on click of it a pop-up comes and user can select a state and that hidden field is set with selected value.

Following code was working before when dojo was not used:
comboBox = new Select(select);

But after dojo use it gives error: Element should have been "select" but was "table"

How I can select value in drop-down. Please guide me with code.
I am using Selenium 2.0, java program.
Thanks.
Eidt: At least I just want to select the value in drop down (or may be set the hidden field value set) so that submit of form will not give error.

Hello
I'm using Eclipse and setting it up to use JUnit.  I'm following the Eclipse help files, so I should not have any problems, but I do.
I am instructed to import the junit3.8.1src, which is in the desktop.  I manage to import the zip file, but I can't extract the files into the src folder, as the instructions show.
I have done an import with the Selenium, and did not have any problems.
I've tried several attempts, even manualy copying the files into the src folder and restarting Eclipse.
Any suggestions what I could try next?

I am attempting to store the result value (true or false) of the assertElementPresent method in the variable A using this Selenese syntax:

storeEval | var b=assertElementPresent(//table[1]//tr[${i}]/td[1]/input[1]) | A

The syntax is incorrect. What syntax would I use to make this statement work?

Thanks.

We would like to incorporate a piece of software into our company that can notify, via email, users when a document has been edited. Even better, we would like to have something like a word document that  could contain a checklist, once the document has been updated by a user on the checklist ideally a notification would automatically be sent to the next user on the checklist letting them information is required from them before the document could move on to the next user.

It is important that the email be sent only after the work criteria is met on the document/file.

Hello
While IDE and RC are deprecated, could they still be used for developing automated test cases?  I see that the IDE can still be installed.

Hi, we currently user BEX to run our backup tasks with a Dell TL2000 tape loader to handle the media. What I have noticed over the last month or so, is that some jobs will run and complete successfully, but the tape loader retains the tape in the drive slot. This is an issue if there are other jobs queued, where effectively it reduces the capability to one available drive. This does not happen all the time but is intermittent.

I am in the unenviable position of having to remove USM Flash Memory support on our domain, but (as usual) those that think they are important enough demand the right to continue using USB Keys.

Can anyone tell me the implications of doing this if they were to lose company or personal data.

We are considering having serial numbered totally encrypted keys but there is always a risk I assume.

Facebook, Flickr, Google and many other companies are releasing code every day or even multiple times every day. In such an environment, what techniques/tools/strategies are used by the Test teams to ensure that functionality is tested (both for functional correctness as well as performance)?

I imagine there would be a robust automation framework, but not all tests can be automated and even developing automation scripts would take time. Please note that I am not talking about developer tests (unit tests), but about a separate QA team

So, how do these guys do it? On a related note, coordinating multiple development teams across different areas for a daily release seems a huge task.

Detailed responses or links to blogs, white papers and other resources are welcome, even if they are paid ones.

Dear Sir,
              i am getting Geeting Malivious software warning mails from Google Search Quality Team.
please see the mail sample below and kindly advice why this is happening :-) we have created our website through www.wix.com, its flash based )

"Dear site owner or webmaster of abc.com,

We recently discovered that some of your pages can cause users to be infected with malicious software. We have begun showing a warning page to users who visit these pages by clicking a search result on Google.com.

Below are some example URLs on your site which can cause users to be infected (space inserted to prevent accidental clicking in case your mail client auto-links URLs):

http://abc.com/
http://www.abc .com/

Here is a link to a sample warning page:
http://www.google.com/interstitial?url=http%3A//abc.com/

We strongly encourage you to investigate this immediately to protect your visitors. Although some sites intentionally distribute malicious software, in many cases the webmaster is unaware because:

1) the site was compromised
2) the site doesn't monitor for malicious user-contributed content
3) the site displays content from an ad network that has a malicious advertiser

If your site was compromised, it's important to not only remove the malicious (and usually hidden) content from your pages, but to also identify and fix the vulnerability. We suggest contacting your hosting provider if you are unsure of how to proceed. StopBadware also has a resource…

I have been playing with Set oDiction=DotNetFactory.CreateInstance("System.Collections.Hashtable") and it works.  I like the contain features which are much cleaner than using exist.

My problem is, I cannot pull the keys out of the hash nor have I have I been able to incorporate the dictionaryentry.

Any help in listing the keys would be appreciated.

Would like to know how to save just the packets I have placed a display filter on.
I see in the manual it says..."The packet range frame is a part of various output related dialog boxes. It provides options to select which packets should be processed by the output function. If the Captured button is set (default), all packets from the selected rule will be processed. If the Displayed button is set, only the currently displayed packets are taken into account to the selected rule".....
How do I find the Packet Range Frame that is part of various output related dialog boxes?
