Test Case based on the Test Plan. A test case is a document, which contain Test case ID, Title, Test Plan, Test Catagory being conducted, input, action or event, expected output, actual output and Result. As mentioned above, test case based on test plan. It relates to single event or action which must reflets it relation to the module of test plan. This is a work intensive activity with the testing expert doing the writing and with the assistance of the business expert and the development expert.

A good starting place is to identify some of the smallest or simplest business activities that the new software needs to support and define test cases for each of these activities. Then, define test cases that portray either larger business activities or specific sequences of smaller business activities that tend to

approximate useful business tasks. Check the software business requirements and

confirm that you have accounted for all required business activities with your test cases and add test cases for the business activities that are not covered yet by testing.

comment: answer to the question

test cases are prepared depending upon the functional requirement details for object properties, usecases for functionality flow of the system and sometimes ER diagrams or hierarchical diagrams for navigational flow of the application

The base of any test case is the Requirements documents and specification documents. Understanding the Application properly one can write good test cases, which are used to test the application properly.

No,We cannot prepare test case without referring to anything.The reason is all the process in the project is related to the SRS without which we cannot start the project.The test case is to test the project whether it is working properly as per the requirements and as per the user interface.

Test cases will prepared depending up on the Use cases or Prototype modules. Some companies are not providing prototype models in that case we will prepare the test case by seeing the Use cases.

There is no separate template for +ve and -ve Testcases. Both are same. But our intentions is to pass for +ve Testcases, fail for -ve testcases.

Yes, There are positive and negative test cases.
Actually, the purpose of test case is to find errors in application. The best test case is that who can identify the errors in application efficiently, So

Positive testing is that testing which attempts to show that a given module of an application does what it is supposed to do.
Negative testing is that testing which attempts to show that the module does not do anything that it is not supposed to do.

When i write test cases, i concentrate on one requirement at a time. Then, based on that one requirement, i come up with several real life scenarios that are likely to occur in the use of the application by an end user. When i write test cases, i describe the inputs, action, or event, and their expected results, in order to determine if a feature of an application is working correctly. To make the test case complete, i also add particulars like test case identifiers, test case names, objectives, test conditions, input data requirements (or steps), and expected results.Correct me if i am wrong.Thank u.

The more negative u  think the more brilliant test engineer ur.
so before writing test cases think in all negative angles and start working on it.Test engineers' work is to prove the development team wrong.

We can prepare test cases by refering functional requirements as functional requirement doc contains all the info about the requirement of the application. Positive test cases we can write with the help of FRS and we also have to write negative test cases with the help of FRS which includes the functionality which we do not want in the application.

  Was this answer useful?  Yes

Test cases are prepared based on the SRS requirements from the base SRS we are preparing the Test Scenario based on the scenario we are preparing the Test case it is nothing but telling that which field we are validating and what are all the inputs we are giving these are all be stored in the formoftest case template

The answer to this question depends on industry, company, the software development model, and project.  In general, you prepare functional test cases by first studying the product or project requirements.  If possible, you gain as much information from other documentation like technical specs, work-flow diagrams, wireframes, etc.  Once you have a good understanding of your project, then you can begin authoring test cases.  After the test cases are written, map them to requirements.  And finally prioritize the test cases.

Test Cases are prepared based on the Wireframe and System Requirement Specifications (SRS) once you get this document then you can write no. of possible Test Cases on what Application you are working on.
then , make a Test Case Template.
