Software test case setup notes
We need to set up test parameters in the software program, for some tests, to execute a test.
The test parameters refer to a program’s input parameters, the parameters found at different program levels, and the test setup parameters.
The Input parameters refer to general input parameters we need to fill out to start using a program and a particular program’s section or a screen.
The test setup parameters refer to the parameters we need to set up to execute our test.
In simple software programs, the parameters setup is simple.
In more complex software programs, it takes time to plan, organize, and set up the test input parameters.
Please keep in mind that we need to set up parameters for all our tests.
For some complex tests, we need to fill out at least one or more screens to set up a single test.
Side Note: For the test setup, we need to know if a test preparation step or test result effect is final or reversible.
The final means we cannot go back to one or more steps within the software program. The reversible means can go back one or more steps backward with the software program. If a test preparation step or the test result is final, then, for some tests, we need to set up all parameters from scratch.
