A tester tests from requirements and use cases. Requirements are 'conditions
or capabilities of a system to which it must conform' A use-case is a
'sequence of actions that are performed on a system and provide an
observable result of value to an actor.'
A requirement of a system would then be: 'The system must be able to print a
report'; the use case tells us the most obvious way to do that; so we print
a report by pressing the print icon. This use case will be a test case. But
the use-case is not the only test case, we have scenarios as well: scenarios
are alternative ways of achieving a use-case. So a scenario will be 'the
user prints the report by pressing Ctrl + P.'
The requirements could be held in ReqPro, and can be pulled through into
TestManager 2001x. Testing ain't much good without requirements in place,
and the 'eliciting, specifying and organising' of requirements is not really
the testers role.
A bit simplistic, I know.
