Test case generator requests are submitted using an HTML form. The request may have a title and names for the factors on the first lines. It contains at least one partition with at least one block of factor values lines, as shown below.

In the configuration example the test system has five test factors with values as follows.

The first line names the request. Each of the next five lines labels the test factors of the system. The pound (#) character at the beginning of the seventh line indicates the start of a partition. The partition has one block, with a factor values line for each of the five factors. The block defines a set of possible test cases formed by all combinations of these factor values. Any combination of values in the block is allowed.

If the partition had multiple blocks, as in the constraints example, the request also would have one or more lines beginning with the plus (+) character to indicate the start of a new block, followed by five more factor values lines:

If the request had a second partition, it would follow the first, with a pound (#) at the beginning of its first line. (The calendar example has two partitions, for normal and error test cases.)
