Use Case Testing


What is Use Case Testing?

Use Case Testing is a functional black box testing technique that helps testers to identify test scenarios that exercise the whole system on each transaction basis from start to finish.

Characteristics of Use Case Testing:

  • Use Cases capture the interactions between 'actors' and the 'system'.

  • 'Actors' represents user and their interactions that each user takes part into.

  • Test cases based on use cases and are referred as scenarios.

  • Capability to identify gaps in the system which would not be found by testing individual components in isolation.

  • Very effective in defining the scope of acceptance tests.


The Below example clearly shows the interaction between users and possible actions.
