STAREAST 2006: Branch Out Using Classification Trees for Test Case Design

Julie Gardiner, QST Consultants Ltd.

Classification trees are a structured, visual approach to identify and categorize equivalence partitions for test objects to document test requirements so that anyone can understand them and quickly build test cases. Join Julie Gardiner to look at the fundamentals of classification trees and how they can be applied in both traditional and agile test and development environments. Using examples, Julie shows you how to use the classification tree technique, how it complements other testing techniques, and its value at every stage of testing. She demonstrates a classification tree editor that is one of the free and commercial tools now available to aid in building, maintaining, and displaying classification trees.
