As a rule, software testing is carried out relying on test cases. It is very important to use the correct approach to writing them, as properly written test cases, providing sufficient test coverage, are a key to successful web site testing, desktop testing and mobile application testing.

Professional test engineers recommend reading specification and other documents of the application under test before creating test cases and first of all focus on the application functionality.

Having studied the software functions, one may enter upon elaborating test cases for functional testing. It is wise to start from writing tests for verifying the program business rules, then tests covering all the program functions are written.

Functional testing is one of the most important and time-consuming activities during software testing process. But it is also necessary to write test cases for user interface testing, integration testing, security testing, load testing and other testing types that are decided to be necessary for the project.

Test cases are usually elaborated based on the project documents. If they are not provided, the tests can be created relying on examination of the software product under test.
There is also check-list based testing that does not assume using test cases at all.
