Since the dawn of software development, we all have debated
the pros and cons of Manual Testing and Automated Testing.

I want to discuss the features and benefits of each - please
contribute your ideas and I will be happy to post a response
which consolidates your feedback.

a. What are the situations in which Automated Testing simply
does not work?
b. Could complete coverage of functional testing be achieved
by automated testing?
c. Does manual testing take too much time and is impractical?
d. What are the best tools for automated testing?
e. Can we identify a least common denominator process
in manual testing so ROI can be increased?

Thank you,

Vijay Sikka
