In this chapter, we covered different aspects of test planning and test strategy, while learning about the relationship between the requirements and the test plan. We understood the components of a general test plan that can be used during the test planning process. We also learned how to write test plans using Jira plugins.

There are various ways to define a test strategy. We looked at an example of creating a test strategy for a banking application using the TMap approach. In order to create a traceability matrix, we need to establish a relationship between test cases and test plans, and the test requirements. In this chapter, we saw precisely how we can link test plans to their related requirements.

In the next chapter, we will learn about the process of test case design and creation. We will also learn about organizing test cases, and hone our skills in reusing test cases and test data.
