How to write an Integration Test Case:

Simply put, a Test Case describes exactly how the test should be carried out.
The Integration test cases specifically focus on the flow of data/information/control from one component to the other.

So the Integration Test cases should typically focus on scenarios where one component is being called from another. Also the overall application functionality should be tested to make sure the app works when the different components are brought together.

The various Integration Test Cases clubbed together form an Integration Test Suite
Each suite may have a particular focus. In other words different Test Suites may be created to focus on different areas of the application.

As mentioned before a dedicated Testing Team may be created to execute the Integration test cases. Therefore the Integration Test Cases should be as detailed as possible.

Sample Test Case Table:

Test Case ID

Test Case Description

Input Data

Expected Result

Actual Result










Additionally the following information may also be captured:
a) Test Suite Name
b) Tested By
c) Date
d) Test Iteration (One or more iterations of Integration testing may be performed)

Too often, sets of integration tests are much less effective than they should be because, when considered as a whole, they both (a) cover the same combinations of variables multiple times (and therefore waste time that could be better spent elsewhere) and (b) accidentally forget to test for common combinations that should be tested (and therefore risk defects not being detected).
