Redundancy in what way?

I'm not certain what it is that you mean by this question. A couple of thoughts - Can you explain your context a bit?

Saying you "want to create 5000 manual functional test case (sic)" sounds a bit like an exercise in theory, or maybe an exam question or classroom exercise. Does the number of test cases matter? What if you were creating 50 test cases? How would you be sure there was no redundancy then?

Hi Pdhanda,

Well not sure if I understood your question clearly...what I understood is...you need to create n number of test cases...you have team of say 4-5 people and you want to make sure that the test cases are not repeated among them.
If this is correct then...there could be 2 ways to handle this-
1. Divide the modules among your team members. Say if you have a web site to test and it has got say 10 screens then divide 2 screens to each team member and keep a track of it.

2. Divide the features among your team members. Say to 1 team member can write test cases for login pages, 1 can for exports etc.

In both cases you need to keep a track of which team member is working on what. And also their deliverable should be reviewed regularly in order to avoid any confusion, repetition and skipping anything. In such cases skipping any test case or features cause major damage than repeating anything.

Please let me know if this does not answer your question and I have miss-understood it.

Thanks this is what i was looking for...
If you have any other suggestion then please let me know.
My main intention end of the day is to avoid redundancy in the test cases.
And also how is it possible to keep a track when large functional team is involved??

Can you pl. let us know how you came up with the no. 5000?

IMO the count of the testcases doesn't matter. what matters is the test cases coverage of requirements. It doesn't matter whether you cover your requirements with 50 test cases or hundred test cases.

In our case we write requirements first and then we give each test-case writer a list of requirement to cover.

I was wondering if anyone has seen a open source test tool that covers the requirement assignment with adapted report ?

I would suggest following points.
1.Identify and Separate the Areas / Modules on which testing is expected.
2.Identify the common test cases / steps which are common to application.
3.Instead of writing detailed test cases first create high level draft. During review you can identify the duplicate test case. Once this activity is done further test case can be detailed to steps.

Covering requirements is one way to avoid redundancy.

I am curious, as someone who is obviously leading the development of tests and assigning test case writing, what experience do you have in writing test cases yourself? I would imagine you would know how to resolve this exercise.

After Salomé i am using now Squash TMit seems to be a good alternativ to salomé and testlink.

The report management on this tool will be updated for the next version in a few weeks.
