I am working with some managers to define how we put our reality in a new quality management tool (Rational RQM).
I have already put the question on RQM forums (and waiting for answers).
My question will be more general.
I will set the context.
a Test Case can contain many manual Test Scripts.
a Test Script can be referenced by many Test Cases.
a Test Script can include other Test Scripts (modules or inclusion).
What option would you choose to implement?
Option A: one Test Case <-> many Test Scripts (will generate one execution instance for each Test Script)
Option B: one Test Case <-> one main Test Script (include many Test Scripts)
After some time spent thinking about that, my mind seems to be set for Option B.
Re: Practical but Generic Question about Test Cases
It seems that it would sort of depend on where the Pass/Fail validation is to occur. Do you write up a Test Case or one of the Test Scripts, or in the case of "B" the main Test Script or the smaller scripts? And, how many Test Scripts must fail to justify failing the Test Case. Just wondering about the possibilities... [img]/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]
