Hello everyone, i need little explanation on difference between test plan and test case? I have read about both on Wikipedia but just wanted to know very basic examples if is possible. I will be starting as fresher for system business analyst and just wanted to get an idea. I will really appreciate all the help i can get. Thank you
Test Plan document is written by the QA team so the other teams understand how the QA team will approach the testing effort of this project. Test cases are written to test each and every functionality of an application.
My ASQ Certified Software Quality Engineer (CSQE) Certification training batch is starting on July 11 2016. Details and 6 VERIFIABLE RECOMMENDATIONS for my training at www.facebook.com/PickTechnologies
A test plan is a document focusing on objectives of testing, target market, and processes for a specific testing process and team for a software application or product. The plan typically contains a detailed understanding of the workflow.
A test case, in software, is a set of variables under which a tester will determine whether an application, software system or one of its features is working well and reaching the client's requirements and desires.
An test case is commonly characterized as a report that lays out the accompanying:
- Test information
- Testing environment
- Expected results
- Real results
It's utilized to for a solitary test situation. Generally speaking, there are normally both a positive and negative experiment for every situation.
The reason for an experiment is two-overlap: It's intended to discover any mistakes or bugs inside of the product application, and it's likewise intended to show how the application ought to be executed in the event that it performs effectively. It additionally exhibits true utilization of the item and whether it fits the client needs.
While an testcase is just intended to test a specific situation, a test arrangement is a far reaching record that lays out every single major activitie connected with a specific testing venture. A test arrangement incorporates:
- Extent of the task
- Target market
- Testing cycle begin/end dates
- Significant parts and obligations/general assets
- Testing environment
- Significant dangers and how to handle these dangers
- Imperfection reporting and relief
- Testing end date
