Software Testing : A Test Case Execution with Good Understanding Using Clear Quest

Authors(3) :-M. Hari, I. Sreevani, P. Pradeep Kumar Reddy

A Test case is a series of steps designed to test the correctness of software functionality or important part of an application. Test cases need to be simple and easily understandable when someone reads a test case for the first time, he or she should be able to understand and execute a script without any assistance. The classic objective of test cases or testing is to find defects. The best test case identifies errors with good probability. The important conventions and guidelines such as testing concepts need to be followed while executing good test cases. One or more test cases should be designed to test one requirement. Care should be taken not to have too many requirements mapped to a single test case. Tracking becomes easier when you have at least one test case per requirement to yield good test results. Check should be made to verify if the test cases have all the functionalities and requirements covered as per Requirement Traceability Matrix. A Clear Quest tool is one of the best automation tools for defect management and workflow. It is used for a defect and Change Request monitoring tool for testing related projects. We can track the present stage and situation of a project development at any point.
