    Max No of Unit Test Cases

    since I am new to Manual Testing I don't have much idea in drafting test cases.How many test cases can be prepared for a text box field which has to accept 0-3 number as per specification.My idea is to write test cases like Enter less than 0 in the Text Box,Enter 1 in the Text Box,Enter 2 in the Text Box,Enter 3 in the Text Box,Enter 4 in the Text Box(Boundary value Check),Field level Check(Skip to next field(Null),Enter more than 1 number(Max length),Enter Special Characters(Alphanumeric Characters),Enter negative numbers in the text box,etc).So totally there will be 9 test cases.It will be helpful if anybody refered this answers.Thanx in advance

    Re: Max No of Unit Test Cases

    Take this as a pre-answer.
    This topic is a perfect example for the Functional testing forum, so my opinion whould be to post your question there, and I'm sure it will be answered.

    I'll be one of volunteers.

    Re: Max No of Unit Test Cases

    The max number of cases is some huge number, consisting of every value you could possibly try to enter into the field. The meaningful number is the minimum number of cases that will provide sufficient assurance that you've minimized the risk of any bugs slipping through. The two "buzzwords" of concern here are "boundary test" and "equivalence class". You've already effectively addressed boundary conditions with 0, 1, 3, and 4 as test values. What you now need to determine is what classes of other inputs are possible, and ensure that you have at least one test case for each. Possible input classes might be: non-numeric character, null (no entry), special character (%$#, etc.), decimal fractions (is 1.5 allowed?), etc.

    The more test cases the better with regards to finding potential bugs; but you need to balance that against the realities of schedule, personnel, and time.
