Abstract

There are a number of concerns in agile software development, including requirements engineering. There are different types of agile requirement, of which currently the most common forms are use cases and user stories. The use cases and user stories have different origins, both in space and in time, but, by being among the practices of scenario-oriented requirements engineering (SORE), they are not entirely unrelated. The purpose of this article is to situate use cases and user stories in context of each other. This is done by means of a conceptual framework for systematically comparing use cases and user stories. The understanding of similarities and differences between use cases and user stories have pedagogical as well as practical implications.
