This Hexawise test design exercise will require you to create a few Invalid Pairs to prevent impossible-to-test combinations from being generated. Some useful background information about what this feature is, what problem it solves, and how to use it is provided in this Hexawise Invalid Pairs help file.

Instructions

I. Create a New Plan using the following test inputs:

 

Animal: Dog, Cat

Specific Type: Weiner Dog, Puggle, Blood Hound, Portuguese Water Dog, Siamese, Abyssinian, Sphynx, Persian

How many tests do you see?  ____________________

What problem do you see with the tests you've generated?  ____________________

 

III.  Prevent "Impossible to Test For" Combinations from Appearing

Create a bunch of Invalid Pairs. Specficially...

A) Prevent "Dog" from appearing in any tests cases with Siamese, Abyssinian, Sphynx, Persian by using the Invalid Pair feature.

B) Prevent "Cat" from appearing in any tests cases with Weiner Dog, Puggle, Blood Hound, or Portuguese Water Dog by using the Invalid Pair feature.

IV.  Create a set of Pairwise (e.g., 2-way) tests.
