    There are only 2 really decent TCM system in this list: TestLink and XStudio.
    I used TestLink for 3 years and switched to XStudio recently. This tool is pretty new but is much better than TestLink now. Strongly advised.

  2. TN says:

    You may want to add RIACase – a free web-based test case management tool to your list (

  3. Ruth says:

    There is a community edition of Test management tool Klaros.

  4. Parag says:

    @deve : is TestLink and XStudio are open source tool ?

  5. pushpesh says:

    XStudio has a free community edition which has a limit of 10 users only with 1000 tests only, therefore not a good solution for big project with more users, however they have commercial versions with better features.

  6. Noroo says:

    Xstudio is commercial free, so it is limited. Not good idea to compare with a fully free management tool. ie: testlink

  7. Sharaf Ali says:

    QABook is not free anymore check

    XQual Studio Free Edition is just trial and for small projects check
