Here's a test case problem:
The requirement:"Formatting is automatically applied to all date fields (dd/mm/yy formatted)"
Here are my findings after a 15 minute test session:
- Formatting is automatically applied when entering dates as
- 12th Dec 2014
- 12 Dec 2014
- 12 December 2014
- 12th December 2014
- Formatting is not applied to:
- 12th Dec 14
- 12th December 14
a) Did the requirement 'pass'?
b) According to some claims, it is best practice to write one positive test case and one negative test case per requirement. What would I have learned by writing and executing two test cases?
c) Some test management tools would report 100% coverage with 1 test case and if it passed, it would say that the requirement passed.
Maybe talking about testing in terms of test cases and of passes and fails isn't useful.
