Test Suite

This document is based on MTA version 1.8.

Definition

A Test Suite is an executable part of a Test Configuration and consists of a collection of Test Cases that are intended to be used to test a software program to show that it has some specified set of behaviours.

The Test Suite is the second level of the 4-layer framework that is used in MTA. It allows for a Test Configurations to be split up into different functional or technical aspects of the tested software, but it is also the level where Data Variation is defined.
