    1. Use case:
    It will be developed by Business Analyst based on the requirement specification.
    It is a detailed description of the Specification in a simplified version with realtime scenarios.
    Based on Use case, test cases will be written by the testers.

    2.Scenario:
    While writing a test case for a module, you write different tests for that module say, Creating a user.
    There may be several ways to create a user like, creating a user thru wizard or thru uploading set of users.
    These are all the things we can call as a scenario. This is the literal meaning.

    Test case:

    What are all the steps we should follow for creating a user using a wizard and
    What are all the steps we should follow for creating a user using upload are called as test case.

    Usecase:
    The functions performed by different entities(Customer, Staff, Manager) is mentioned in Usecase. a) Staff enters customer information.

    Test Scenario:
    Test cases are written based on scenario. Test scenarios are very brief.
    a)Staff enters customer information
    b)Customer returns a book

    Test Cases:
    Test cases are derived from scenarios. They are step by step instructions. They are very detailed and also contains actual results and expected results along with other fields
    a. Enter customer information(Name, address, ph no)

    Suppose there is a product example: video conference unit, and one can use that for medical purpose or Educational training or personal or office etc.,so depending upon the use the use cases are prepared, it is nothing but depending upon the implement scensrio.So test cases related to this is nothing but usecases test scenario and it contains end to end flows of data.

    Hi Deepasree,

    Your provide link is not saying about "use cases" that is for test cases and test scenario.

    Use case: the description of requirements with clear information step by step.

    Scenario: end to end scenario, from first page to last page.

    test case: for each and every attribute

    Re: What is exact difference between use case ,test scenario and test case?

    hi
    Here is the difference

    Use cases are means of capturing functional specifications.Use case diagrams explains you how the business flow is. To be more specific it explains you the interaction between
    the actor and the system.

    Test Scenario define a business flow from start point to end point. let take an example suppose Search form.there would 2 scenarios for this
    1) Simple search by keyword
    2) Search by Location.

    Test Case is prepared to check the Functionality of the system. It consist of Step for function,Step description,Actual result and Expected result.its main objective is to check the functionality of the system whether its meets the client specification or not.


    hope this might help you

    test scenario is actually the events that occurs during testing.
    test case is actually a document which contain procedure to test a feature.
    use case is the pictorial representation of test scenario
