The use cases that I've worked with were
very general. They spelled out who the users
are, what kinds of tasks they would need to
accomplish in the application, and the types
of permissions they might need. Use cases, in
my experience, do not specify what users click
and what kind of error messages users would
read, because that is design-level information.



# Can anyone provide me with an example of a use case that has
# actually WORKED
# (read: was useful) in Real Life? #
