There are various methodologies for writing the test cases.some of them are as follows,1)Equivalence partitoning2)Boundary value analysis3)Error guessing4)State transition5)cause effect graph6)race condition

we write test cases in two ways:1.GUI  2.Function

Functional----a) positive testcases     b)negative testcases.

Again while writing positive /negative testcases we use

1.boundary value analysis (BVA technique)

2.equalance partion critera.

what u specified that is only for input domain based test case design method.

There are 3 test case design methods available.Such as SRS based testcase design method.2)input domain based testcase design method......another one i have forgotten....

The methodologies we follow may differ from organisation to organisation. For both GUI and functional we can use high level and low level design documents to cover up the positive scenarios. As a tester we should think about the negative cases also.

Boundary value analysis,Equilance class partitioning,error guessing,cause effect ......... etc are test methodologies to write the test cases.

Actually i don't know what is u'r  intension.What are the methodoligies we are using to write the test cases means what are the techniques or what documents ?

Offcourse we are using Equavalence partition and Boundary value anaysis.

But we are using the documents to write the test cases We are using SRS,Reports,Test resposible Matrixa and if Mock ups are there means we are using Mock ups also.

You do not use a methodologies to write test cases.

A methodology is the life cycle used on the project.

The testing life cycle should follow the project delivery life cycle.

Most methodologies divide the life cycle into phases.

Some of the most common methodologies are the Waterfall, the V-Model, and Agile.

If we understand the user needs completely and appropriately it becomes easier to write Test Cases.

For writing Test Cases we need to think from the point of view of an end user.

Normally the following things are considered before writing test cases :

1) Inputs allowed [both (1) type of input & (2) length of input]
2) Negative scenarios which can be entered by the end user and here we check that the application is able to handle such scenarios properly or not. (i.e. reliability)
3) State Transition
4) Easy to use (i.e. simpler UI)
5) Security
6) Robustness
