    Please comment with the type of application you work with along with the principles you follow

    • Understand the requirement and acceptance criteria in order to have the whole picture of what is needed from test cases
    • Target single functionalities first in simple model and then combination of functionalities in more complex model
    • Communicate and work together with development team to understand limitation and areas to do stress in the test cases
    • Cover different user interaction ways to run test cases
    • Include models that includes different functionalities on automation regression
    • Document steps and results of your testing
    • Review test cases with other experts, including domain and usability knowledge

    Test Case is a part of Software Testing. Software testing is procedure of finding an error or bug either manually or with the use of automation tools.

    some principles for effective test case:
    1. Exhaustive Testing is not possible

    2. Defect Clustering

    3. Testing will show presence of defects

    4. early testing

    @Darwin. Test cases should be written during the earlier stage of the software development life cycle. Gathering software requirement is the best phase to write the test case. Testers should have to follow these points for effective test cases which can also increase the efficiency of those test cases:

    – Detailed requirements specified by the Customer

    – Keep a track of all used cases

    – Requirements based on functionality in detail

    – Project Plan of Application to be created

    – Brief documentation of the project milestones
