The following are my requirements for Test Management Tool

  1. Capture the Requirements

  2. Design Test Cases

  3. Map Test Cases with Requirements

  4. Link Bug reports with Test Case ID after the test execution

  5. Test Execution Reports

  6. Version Management for the Test Cases

  7. Search Feature

The following tools are evaluated after the initial screening.

The above tools work with Apache, MySQL & PHP. Both the tools looks promising and the Test Link has some additional benefits in-terms of better reports and linking with popular issue trackers.
