Pinned topic Use case specification - system and error messages

‏2008-09-26T13:12:19Z |
How detailed should the description of system messages and error messages be in the the process flow of use case specification? Shall that simply be .."The system display a message to the user"...
Shall the exact message text be included in the use case specification or the supplementary specification?

    My recommendation would definitely be to store the exact error messages in a seperate file. The messages will probably be reused in several flows and even in several use cases. Reference the error message from the flow. This way it will be easier to update the text in one place!
