Use Cases and Test Scenarios
      #686437 - 09/23/11 11:56 AM

I'm working on creating a use case template and was thinking if the test scenarios are in any way related or can be specified in it? I didnt find anything related over the internet search. Any help in the matter is appreciated.

Hi all,
Use Case:A use case is a description of particular use of the system by an actor.Actor is nothing but an user of a system.Use case is a sequence of steps that describes the interactions the actor has with the system in order to achieve a particular task.
Test Scenarios:Test scenario is nothing but a situation.
A document specifying a sequence of actions for the execution
of a test. Also known as test script or manual test script.

Use Cases:

1)A use case is a description of a systems behavior as it responds to the request that originates from outside of that system.

2)Use case capture the functional requirements of a system.

3)Use case describes the interaction between various users and the system.

Test Scenarios:

1)A scenario is like a story that describes a different situation. In testing, you check how the program comes with this hypothetical situation.

2)The ideal scenario test is credible, motivating, easy to evaluate, and complex.

3)Scenarios are different from test cases in that, test cases are one steps and scenarios cover a many number of steps. Test cases and scenarios can be used in concert for complete system tests.
