advice on Test Case Management tools?

Hi everyone! In addition to lots of Selenium "stuff" at work, I'm also tasked with finding a better TCM (Test Case Management) tool than the one we currently use. I'm supposed to compare four TCMs--our current one, an in-house one, a commercial one, and an open-source one. The first two are easy to evaluate, but the second two are a pain. I don't mind evaluating one of each, but HOW DO I NARROW DOWN THE FIELD TO JUST ONE?!? It's worthless to evaluate the 4th best commercial TCM and the 8th best open-source one. I want to evaluate the best of each!

Yes, I have a requirements list which will help. But I'd really appreciate hearing from any of you who have used TCMs with respect to which ones you liked, which ones you didn't like, etc.

Email your advice to maryann-at-adobe-dot-com OR post it here if you're willing! I think this Meetup needs more between-Meetup communication!

I have never found a test case management tool which I was really satisfied with. In my last role I persuaded the team to use mind maps for test case management. It's a really simple and lightweight solution which works well for agile in my opinion. We were then sharing the mindmaps using dropbox. I felt it was a success - although it really depends on what your requirements are. If you need to provide in depth reports on test coverage and such then mindmaps alone are probably not the best solution - but if you want a quick and simple solution which is easy to use then mindmaps are great.

Here is a good article on the subject => http://www.bettertest...­

In my current role I have decided to create my own test case management tool. We are using Cucumber/BDD heavily for automation and I asked out testers to keep the format for manual and automation the same. This has allowed us to create our own tool which suits our specific needs.

Just wanted to mention if one uses Jira for bug tracking, it could also be adapted for test case management:
