Test techniques

Software Testing Methods:


  1. Static testing
  2. Dynamic testing
  3. Black Box testing
  4. White box testing
  5. Visual (GUI) testing

Static Testing:


  • Testing of the software when its not executing.
  • Its start before software runtime.
  • Its done during verification process.
  • It can be performed manually as well as with automated software.
  • It does not need computer because testing done without executing the program. For example:


Dynamic Testing:


  • It is the testing of program in run time.
  • Its work with software, gives input checks outputs are as expected.
  • It can be performed manually as well as with automated software.
  • Its done during validation process.
  • Examples: Unit testing, integration testing, system testing. For More Click here...


Black Box Testing:


  • It treats software as block box.
  • No knowledge of internal program design and code required.
  • It examine software without any knowledge of its its internal implementation.
  • Tester only aware what the software suppose to do, not how it does it.
  • It is also known as Specification based testing technique.
  • It is also known as input/output driven testing technique.
  • Test of based on requirements and functionality only.
White Box Testing:


  • It treats as white box testing.
  • Knowledge of the internal program design and code required.
  • Test are based on coverage of code statements, branches, paths, conditions.
  • It examine internal structure of program.
  • It is also known as structured based technique.
  • It is also known as glass box testing technique.
  • Tester require knowledge of how the software is implemented, how it works.
  • Tester is concentrated on how the software does it.
Visual (GUI) Testing:

  • It is the process of testing a product's graphical user interface to ensure it meets its written specification like testing images and buttons alignment on any webpage.
