    Test scenarios are the test suites in which the application works or might be put into, test case is the subset of test suite in which you give values or check the functionality in the new scenario or suite. and test script is the automated script to run that test case.

    Test Scenarios Is a pre condition or a base state in which the application is put before the execution of a test case.

    Test Suit A collection of logically related test cases.

    Test Case A single test of the suit that has at least one input value that is unique among the other test cases of the suit.

    Test script is a test automation program code in TSL language (for WinRunner) or VBScript language (for QTP).

    Test cases are written for a specific functionality (For example to Test Login for a user)
    Test cases come under test scenarios where many test cases are put together to test a functionality( To test Login and home page functionalities where u need to write a group of testcases for both Login & home page functionalites)
    Test scripts are the automation part of test cases

    There is no agreed upon definition what a scenario is, but still
    We define scenarios informally to be any form of description or capture of user-system interaction sequences.
    What is a test case?
    A set of test inputs, execution conditions and expected results
    Reflects what tests need to be performed
    Identifies the data needed for testing
    Specifies pre-conditions, post conditions and acceptance/pass criteria
    Provides a means to verify system use cases and other requirements
    Helps determine test coverage
    Test Script
    This is generated by the tools and we cannot write them.

    Test case and test script are same thing, just difference exists is that test case manual check up and test script is automated check up of the application.

    Test scenario is the way a user can use the application, generally combination of different test cases.

    In the software testing
    Test Scenario: It is a one function of the application.

    Test case: we want to make sure the function in the different ways. So Test cases are explaining those different ways.
    Normally test cases have two types 1. Positive Test case
    2. Negative Test case.

    Test script: Automated test cases called as test script.

    If test case is generated using automated tools, it is called as Test Script.

    Re: Is Test Case & Test Script same OR different

    I've always treated test scenarios as containing test scripts with test cases the implementation of those. Test suites may contain a number of test cases that implement multiple test scripts within a test scenario. For example:
    Oracle Open World is now registering attendees. Possible scenarios are:
    1) Register as a new attendee
    2) Register as a previous attendee
    3) Register as a member of the press
    Possible test scripts for the first scenario are:
    a) Register as a customer
    b) register as a prospective customer
    c) Register as partner
    d) register as a prospective partner
    Possible test cases for 1)-a) Customer attending first time
    i) Register for OOW, book a hotel, enroll in training, sign-up for special events
    ii) Register for the OOW expo and sign-up for special events.
    As you can see the transaction data for i) and ii) are or could be the same but applied differently. Also, easily seen is how many test cases are needed for the combination of possibilities.

    Hi,

    Test case is the procedure or the steps to created in order to evaluate the system against the requirement. You can have various column to identify the test case, so main column could be Test Case ID#,Test Steps, expected Result, Actual result,Status. This is in the case of manual testing however when we create the same things by using automation tool then it is called as Test Script.

    Basically both are the same. It depends from company to company on the terminology. However Test cases is referred more in manual testing and test script is referred more in automation.
