I have heard the buz about Agile develeoplment and how teams build and code applications using the agile methdology. However is there such a thing as Agile testcases? If so how do they vary from regular testcases or am I confusing the two topics?

Test cases might be the same on an agile team as on any other team. The big difference is that on agile teams, the test cases are written ahead of, or concurrently with, coding. Also, we write the test cases in collaboration with the business experts. (This isn't a new idea, but it is commonly used on agile teams). My team's approach is to write high level test cases ahead of coding, and detailed, executable tests simultaneously with coding, working closely with the programmers. A lot of great open source test tools have grown out of agile teams, including Fit/FitNesse and Behavior-Driven Development tools such as RSpec.
