    3) A test that discovers an undiscovered bug (golden rule for any test case).

    A good testcase is one that has the following characteristics:
    - Should be atomic and have a clear objective.
    - Provides good coverage.
    - Identifies the most number of defects.
    - Is well structured.
    - Is not ambigous in any way.
    - Can be linked-back to a specific requirement in the requirement document.

    In addition to these the characteristics of a good automated Testcase include but are not limited to the following:

    1. It should be easy to maintain.
    2. It should be properly structured.
    3. It should run with Minimum/No human intervention.
    4. The data for the testcase should not be part of the script.
