Concepts

  • Cascading test cases are test cases that must be executed one after the other, in a specific order (the state of system, as set by the first test case, is reused by the second and so forth). <bib>delamaro:slides:2009</bib>


Facts

  • The advantage of cascading test cases is that each test case is typically small and simple, thus easier to design, create and mantain. <bib>vicenzi-etal:2007:slides</bib>, <bib>delamaro:slides:2009</bib>
  • The disadvantage of cascading test cases is that if one test fails, the subsequent tests may be invalid. <bib>vicenzi-etal:2007:slides</bib>
