Software Test Design

Software Test design

Once the test plan for a level of testing has been written, the next stage is to specify a set of test cases for each item to be tested at that level. A number of test cases will be identified for each item to be tested at each level of testing.

Each test case will specify how the implementation of a particular requirement or design is to be tested, what will be the environment, what will be the steps and the criteria for success of each test.

Unit test specification will detail the test cases for testing individual units of the software.

Integration test specification will detail the test cases for each stage of integration of tested software components. Primary focus is on data flow between the independent units.

System test specification will detail the test cases of system testing of the software. In this design tester try to mimic the real user environment.

Acceptance test specification will detail the test cases for acceptance of the software.Here the actual users test the software in their environment, where software have to actually work.

Enjoy Software Testing :)
