Test Case Management Usage

The detailed test cases for this feature can be found by accessing the Bookmarks Test Matrix

  • Major Area: Browser
  • Minor Area: UI
  • Category: Bookmarks

Bookmarks and History are closely linked to each other. Much of the same technology(RDF) is used to develop both, they often appear together in the UI, and many of their features depend on each other. At this juncture I have chosen to create separate Feature Test Plans for each but I recommend perusing the History Feature Test Plan as well.

Bookmarks appear or are accesible from within the browser via four mechanisms or entry points: the top level Bookmarks menu, a popup menu within the Personal Toolbar, as a tab for MySidebar, and as a standalone window. The standalone window will be accessed via a menu item (Bookmarks|Manage Bookmarks).

This Feature Test Plan is designed from a functional testing perspective as are the tests that result from it. Therefore, outlined here are the many tasks that a user should be able to perform via the Bookmarks functionality. They will each, roughly, correspond to a functional test.

Tasks that will be tested elsewhere

  • Sidebar bookmarks testing will be limited to verifying that added bookmarks appear in the Sidebar.

Won't Test/At Risk (seeking community contributions)

  • Changing bookmarks location.
  • Manipulating IE Favorites (soon to be unsupported).
