Do you have a template or have you ever written a non-regression test plan?
What would be different about the regression test plan?
How would your approach of automating the test scripts be reflected in the plan?
Does your organization document the test cases within the test plan or separately?
What functional testing has been done on this application previously?
What is the existing functionality of the application that needs to be regressed?
Elvis, I havent until now heard of a test plan for regression testing! We normally put the normal tests to regression. May be you can ask for a format to report the regression tests, but are you sure you need a template for regression test plan?
If you had found one by now, I would really be interested to have a look.
"d r" - lurk for a while before posting any more responses. You don't get any prizes for the number of threads you post to. And lurking will give you some idea of which questions are worth answering and which are not.
I wonder if there is something in the water... or maybe some sales pitch that some of us are not aware of. I have a Development Manager who firmly belives that "experts always use a regression test plan in addition to the 'normal' test plan." I've asked a couple of times who these "experts" are and where are their supporting documents (yes, I do like the punishment). About the time he looks like he's ready to blow a gasket, I mollify him by producing a "regression test plan" - it looks just like the "normal" test plan, but it now says "Regression Plan" at the top.
He's happy, and the project team gets to actually do work and not generate more paper that is good for lining bird cages or starting small fires.
