I did a search to see if this question has already been asked but found nothing. If it has been answered, please direct me to the right place.
I want something simple or something that doesn't have a wide learning curve that will help me generate test cases from use cases.
I've seen Automatic Efficient Test Generator by Telcordia but am not sure if this is what I need.
If anyone has used it, please give me your feedback.
What would really be icing on the cake is a tool that could generate test cases that could be used later to script a demo for our customer.
So far what we've been doing here is simply looking at Use Cases in Word and then putting them in a Boiler Plated Word table. The test cases don't read very well. I would like to see something that could do multiple tasking. (1) Allow for traceability from use case to test case (2)ability to reduce high level use cases to concrete test cases.
I guess RequisitePro is sort of an example, but would prefer something Open Source.
Maybe someone has even used a customized version of Excel or Word to achieve such lofty goals.
It is relatively easy to create a requirements Traceability document in excel - however I have only ever created this manually. Just substitute Your Use case for the Requirements and then add the columns you need to create you test cases.
You should be able to find a example of an RTM format spreadsheet on the Internet

I'm glad that I was referred to the StickyMinds.com website during my reading.
One article that I came across was rather interesting and thought-provoking is The Dangers of Use Cases Employed As Test Cases. Not sure if the author, Bernie Berger is talking about generating test cases from use cases or not. If anyone is familiar with this article, please enlighten me on it.
I am still looking for an Open Source tool or Sample RTM spreadsheet as Lynne has suggested. So, if anyone has such information, it would be appreciated.
If anyone has a copy of Ross Collard's "Developing Test Caes from Use Cases" please forward me a copy.
I was not able to find a link online to this paper. I haven't heard back from his since I requested a copy. I did make it through his spam filter but am still waiting.
So, if anyone can beat him on the uptake I would appreciate it. Thanks in advance.
