    Re: test case and test senerio

    A test case is the procedure followed to execute a test, it consists of the details about the input and expected result.
    Test scenarios are based on a hypothetical story to help a person to think through a complex program or a system.

    Re: test case and test senerio

    Hi Bharathy,

    As for us Test Scenario is concerned ,we can discuss many scenarios in day today life like

    1. Automated teller machine (ATM- Cash machine) ,
    2. Swipping machine for Credit or Debit cards on purchase made.
    3. Winding machine ( for coffe maker)
    4. weighing machine in shops

    Each of the above tells scenario on testing certain parameters.For instance if you take ATM Scenario.You can perform various transactions such as

    a) you can find Balance on your account
    b) You can draw cash as you wish
    c) you can apply for cheque books
    d) You can generate Mini or Detailed Account statement etc

    For each of this parameters you can write Test cases.Hope you got better idea between test cases and test Scenario.Please revert back if you need any informations.

    Thanks,
    Sridevi

    Hi,

    Testcase = A testcase is a one which checks a functionality of one particular object at a time..A scenario can check functionality of multiple objects..and we can tell this as one business process..we can define a series of test-case executed as one scenario

    Test Scenario = Think of a scenario as a workflow. It tests a series of test cases .

    hi all

    In simpler way

    Test case is an executable condition on a build(application).

    Test Scenario is a workflow with no of test cases.

    Re: test case and test senerio

    hi Nikhil

    i agree with u.but every body has it's own definition,some people may say like this some in another way.

    Test scenario describs a specfic workflow about functionality of an application with some no of test cases from starting to ending.
    eg: withdraw in bank ATM.

    Re: test case and test senerio

    Hi friends
    i want to take the example of the bus riding for expalining tht
    test scenario:
    some real time situations or work flow or real existence of work tht how we going to do tht thing. e.g:- we decided to go some whr by bus.so as we planed tht we wil take the bus from tht stop & reach tht palace.

    test case:
    " documented steps written 2 execute particular functionality of the component of software tht might contail expected results, inputs to ensure tht the desired functionality works fine."

    e.g:-
    1. First we take the riksaw from home.
    2.reach bus station by riksaw.
    3.take seat in bus.
    4.reach there by bus.
    5.left the bus after reaching to that place. & like that "these might b the some test cases tht u can think based on the above scenario"
    hope tht u got the concept
    if u find me wrong somwhere please notify me
    i wil b thank ful to u
    regards
    rajeev sharma

    Re: test case and test senerio

    well test senario is the situation or a special case senario based testing in which a tester tries to create that situation and depening upon the need of testing that situation /senario various differnt kind of test cases are required.

    A test case is always a subset of a test senario ..

    I hope it helps ..

    Test Scenario is a big picture. There can be several test cases that can be written to test one test scenario.
    e.g. Test Scenario - Test the checking account functionality for a bank application
    Test cases for the same could be - Test checking form, test for required fields on the form, test for accuracy of the deposit/withdraw function, test for error conditions such as trying to withdraw more than available balance etc.,

    Hope this helps

    Re: test case and test senerio

    A test case is a document that describes an input, action, or event
    and an expected response, to determine if a feature of an application
    is working correctly.
    • A test case should contain particulars such as test case identifier,
    test case name, objective, test conditions/setup, input data
    requirements, steps, and expected results.

    Re: test case and test senerio

    Hi srkishoredrdo,


    I have collected few information on your query,some of your queries are already discussed in geekinterview anyway have a glance.

    1) Thread testing

    this link directs you to geekinterview specific discussion about thread testing http://www.geekinterview.com/question_details/32901

    2) bucket testing

    similarly this topic is discussed already,below link will provide you inforamtion http://www.geekinterview.com/question_details/28841

    3) implementation testing

    Implementation testing or sometimes called installation testing is typically completed by the software testing engineer in conjunction with the configuration manager. Implementation testing is usually defined as testing which takes place using the compile version of code into the testing environment or pre-production environment which may or may not make it into production.

    This generally takes place outside of the development environment to limit code corruption from other future releases which may reside on the development environment. While the ideal installation might simply appear to be to run an install program sometimes called package software. This package software typically uses a setup program which acts as a multi configuration wrapper, which may allow the software to be installed on a variety of machine and/or operating environments. Every possible configuration should require extensive testing before it can be used with confidence.

    In distributed systems, particularly where software is to be released into an already live target environment (such as an operational web site) installation (or software deployment as it is sometimes called) can involve database schema changes as well as the installation of new software. Deployment plans in such circumstances may include back-out procedures whose use is intended to roll the target environment back in the event that the deployment is unsuccessful.

    Ideally, the deployment plan itself should be tested in an environment that is a replica of the live environment. A factor that can increase the organizational requirements of such an exercise is the need to synchronize the data in the test deployment environment with that in the live environment with minimum disruption to live operation. This type of implementation may include testing of the processes which take place during the installation or upgrade of a multi tear application.

    This type of testing is commonly compared to a dress rehearsal or may even be called a “dry run”. Implementation testing is testing of a full, partial or upgrades install/uninstall processes.
    Ref: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Installation_testing

    hope it helped you.

    Re: test case and test senerio

    Hi,

    Test cases are written for test scenario. First the tester is given with test scenario which we can also call as business scenario and test cases are written for that scenario...

    Thanks
    Manoj

    Test case is a condition which confirm that actual result is same as the expected result.

    Test scenario is use case condition , how user can use the system.
