Testing Strategy and Approach
The player interacts with the Brickles program using the mouse and the keyboard.
Description of Functionality
The functionality being tested is the basic Brickles game running in a simple Win32 environment.
Arguments for Tests
An analysis of scenarios in the use cases is depicted in the following table. Assign variables to values that can vary, and determine each variable's data type by examining specifications and the context. For each data type, define a set of equivalence classes. These classes are sets of values within the variable's data type for which product behavior is expected to be equivalent.
|Use Case Analysis|
|Variable||Data Type||Equivalence Classes|
|Left mouse button||boolean||Up, down, down & up|
|Mouse location||Point||Inside window, outside window|
|Number of pucks lost||int||0, 0<numberOfPucksLost<3, 3|
|Number of bricks remaining||int||0, all, 0<brickCount<all|
As test cases are built, an oracle (usually a human) defines what constitutes a correct answer. The following table shows the expected results for each test case.
|Test Case||Left Mouse Button||Mouse Location||Pucks Lost||Bricks Remaining||Expected Results|
|1||Down & up||Inside window||0||0||Won dialog|
|2||Down & up||Inside window||1||0||Won dialog|
|3||Down & up||Inside window||2||0||Won dialog|
|4||Down & up||Inside window||3||>0 and <all||Lost dialog|
|5||Down & up||Inside window||3||all||Lost dialog|
|6||Down||Outside window||Don't care||>0||No effect|
and then down & up
|Inside window||2||0||Won dialog|
|Test Case||Expected Results||Observed Results|
