I was hoping to post this question under a Test Design forum section: Jake [img]/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]
I had a long and interesting day. I am attending the test2008.in conference in New Delhi.
One of the speakers: Vipul Kocher presented a presentation on a test design technique: "Nouns and Verbs"
This is quite an interesting technique and explained a new pattern of asking questions while designing test cases.
I guess I see nothing new here. It seems that probably most of us here have been doing this very thing for years and years.
It is good someone documented it one concise repository. I know I have encountered this same material many times in many different places over the years. In essence, it is a simplified way of stating what so many others have already stated. I guess a reinvented wheel is still a wheel?
Am going through a large test re-design right now and I can honestly say that this methodology is limiting. If I were to apply this technique, I would probably miss more test cases than it would generate. This method seemed to have focused on the positive, GUI testing ideas without considering What If's, or negative testing to start.
