1. 3 mandatiory fields and 3 optional fields are not defined and clarified clearly. What are the fields? Field contains text string or number or date? The possible cases depend on the field type.

2. There are 3x3 positive cases can be written. however, if you apply pairwise technique, you can reduce the positive case.

Positive Case: 1 (with all mandatory & all optional fields)
Negative Case : 4 (1 for All blank mandatory fields , 3 for individual lank field)

Hi

   It would be a better help if mentioned the field type, now we can write the cases only for Optional or mand fields. Briefly we can write the cases like below

1. Submit the page with empty optional fields and verify whether the val msgs shown for optional fields

2. Each time leave any one of the optional feilds, submit the page and verify whether the val msgs shown

3. Submit the page with empty mand fields and verify whether the val msgs shown for mand fields

4. Each time leave any one of the mand feilds, submit the page and verify whether the val msgs shown

To anwser this question, we need to assume something.

We understand that we have several testing techniques to design test cases from user requirements. In this case, you mentioned something unclear, therefore it will be hard to anwser the question correctly. In this case, you need to clarify in details about the 3 mandatory fields and 3 optional fields. If not you can assume and anwser the question with your assumption. In addition, depend on how developers handle errors in this case. If they handle field by field, then the total test cases will increase. If they handle all fields at the same time, then the test cases will reduce.

That is why testing is so hard and flexible. Testing requires both systematical methods and experienced methods.

1) Leave blank 3 mandatory fields
2) Leave blank 2 mandatory fields
3) Leave blank 1 mandatory filed


Comment: for 1,2 and 3 valid error message need to displayed.


4) Leave blank 3 optional fields
5) Leave blank 2 optional fields
6) Leave blank 1 optional field


Comment:
-use 4,5 and 6 entering all the mandatory fields. Without error message task
should be performed
-use 4,5, and 6 along with above 1,2, and 3 test cases. Respective error message
should display.


7) Enter all the mandatory fields and all the optional fields
Comment: Task should be performed.


8) Enter all the mandatory fields and no optional fields
Comment: Task should be performed.


There are 3 mandatory fields and 3 optional fields in an application.  How many positive and negative testcases should be written in order to minimize the number of test cases?

I assume we are referring to only functional test cases that determine how data imput impacts message validations.  If my assumption is correct, then 1 postive and 4 negative test cases will be written to produce a minimum of 5 test cases.


TEST1 (pos)

TEST2 (neg)

TEST3 (neg)

TEST4 (neg)

TEST5 (neg)

Field 1 (man)

valid

empty

valid

invalid

Field 2 (man)

Field 3 (man)

Field 4 (opt)

Field 5 (opt)

The table represents test cases with input values that are valid, invalid or empty.

You can write a total of 7 test cases for this scenario. Out of the 7 test cases, you can write 4 positive test cases.

1. 3 mandatory + 3 Optional fields (One positive test case)

2. 3 mandatory + leave one optional field each time and write a test case for all the three optional fields (Three test cases)

You can write 3 negative test cases for the mandatory fields by leaving one mandatory field each time.

There are 2 positive testcases i.e
1) Enter all the Fields with valid data(Mandatory and Optional fields).
2) Entering only mandatory fields.
