Chapter 6. Test Design Phase

A test case can be defined as a set of instructions for a user (tester) so that they can perform tests on an application in a predefined state. They will also need the predefined set of test data to get the expected results that are mentioned in the requirements. Testing cannot be done without a test case, as the product verification process starts with these test cases. They can either be automated or manual, but the objective remains the same.

In this chapter, we will cover the following topics, as well as learn about the test design phase in detail:

  • Creating and maintaining test cases
  • Reusing test cases and test data
  • Organizing test cases
