Students must prepare a comprehensive Test Plan Report for the “Flag Company E-Commerce Application” application in full compliance with all the requirements listed below. You need to include at least 10 tests using at least three different techniques for black box testing, two techniques for white box testing, and at least three different non-functional tests.
The system is being designed as a Web application with appropriate security to protect the customer’s personal data.
The document should include:
- Title Page (title, draft, date, and your name).
- Table of Contents (with page numbers, automatically generated).
- Description of the application (who, what, where, how): two to three paragraphs.
- Description of the test environment to be used for the test (type of equipment, operating system etc.).
- Summary of the tests planned and the purpose of the testing. Provide a description of the test and why it is significant for this application.
- An estimate of the level of effort (number of hours) that you think it will take to complete the testing (assume only 1 tester is available), including any assumptions you have made in making this estimate.
- Entrance and exit criteria
- Test cases: List of test scenarios and test cases in a table (formatted correctly with an embedded Excel spreadsheet or a Microsoft table) including the following columns:
- A sequential number.
- The type of test (e.g., functional or non-functional) and within that the specific type.(e.g., boundary in black box)
- The test scenario (what function or code are you testing)
- The data that you will enter to test this scenario (should include both a passing and a failing test case for each test scenario).
- The expected result (if the system was working correctly).
- A column for test results and a column for status (these are both blank)
The test cases should be presented in the order they will be run, with the functional before the non-functional. RESULTS ARE NOT REQUIRED
The document should include at least at least 10 test cases. A glossary of terms should be appended to show the main terms that you have used in the document (at least 5 terms and their meaning).
Sources of any other information used must be referenced.
Pages must be numbered and must include your name on each page. The description of the application should be page 1.
Your report will be evaluated in each of the following ways:
- Your test cases must be comprehensive and cover all of the functionality of the application (10 is just a guideline).
- Your test cases and test scenarios must be clear and complete and they must be detailed enough so that they can be run by a tester other than yourself or in an automated environment.
- Section 1 through 7 must be written in complete sentences and be grammatically correct in the third person.
- Your test cases in Section 8 may be written in bullet form but must be written in good formal English (no contractions, etc.) and must be readable. If you Excel to format, attach the Excel spreadsheet separately.
- You must follow the instructions in the report format EXACTLY, it is a company standard.
- You have the flexibility to “design” the document (e.g., typeface, font size, but your style must be consistent throughout the entire document and must be readable for the tester who will be conducting the tests later.
- Your submission must be timely in terms of the deadline given in the syllabus.
- You should spellcheck all parts of the document and auto-generate the table of contents.
YOUR DOCUMENT IS EXPECTED TO BE AT LEAST 2000 WORDS
Requirements Specified for Application
A store called Custom Flags sells customized flags for organizational and personal purposes.
The store wants to develop an online presence with a program where the customer inputs the specifics for a flag order. Customers may order poles separately from flags but they can only order one flag type in each order.. The program then calculates the total cost of the order. The following input is required:
The length of the pole as an integer: 5 - 10 ft inclusive
The pattern on the flag: SOLID, STRIPES, CURVES, or AMERICAN FLAG
The preferred fabric: COTTON, NYLON.
Method of shipping: REGULAR, EXPEDITED
The number of flags or poles to be purchased as an integer: 1-99 inclusive. The customer can only order all the same poles and the same flags in one order.
Each nylon flag costs $15 (tax is included in the price). Each cotton flag costs $20 (tax is included in the price). Poles are $10 plus $2 per foot over five feet. The fabric cost are included in the flag price but there is a $2 surcharge for the striped flag pattern and a $5 surcharge for the curved flag pattern.
A discount of 10% is applied to orders of 10 flags or more.
A shipping cost of $3.00 per flag or pole is applied to the order for regular shipping and $5 per flag for overnight shipping
The Web page must include the logo and a set of customer service contacts (address, email and telephone number).
The company currently has about 500 regular customers who order flags usually twice every year, mainly in the summer timeframe. The average order is 10 poles and 10 flags.
