Testing Methodology

By Siddharth on 3/19/2014

Today I am going to discuss about the testing methodology, there is two type testing methodology one is White Box Testing and second one is Black box testing.

 

White Box Testing:

  • White Box Testing (also called as Clear Box Testing, Glass Box Testing and Transparent Box Testing or Structural Testing) is a method of testing software that tests internal structures or workings of an application.
  • It is usually done at the unit level.
  • White Box Testing is the verification technique software engineers can use to examine if their code works as expected

Black box Testing: An approach of testing where application/software is considered as a black box.

  • Specific knowledge of the application's code/internal structure and programming knowledge in general is not required.
  • Test cases are built around user specifications and requirements, gathering the data of project from the client and use this data during testing.


Types of Black Box Testing:

1. Functional Testing

2. Performance Testing

3. Security Testing

4. Compatibility Testing

5. Usability Testing

6. Negative Testing

7. Ad-Hoc Testing

Functional Testing:

Whether the application/module is functioning according to the stated requirement.

Performance Testing:

Performance testing is generally to determine the speed or effectiveness of a Network,computer, or software programs. The main task of performance how fast system.

Security Testing:

Security testing is conducted to examine an application from the point of view of possibility to affect the user safety and/or make his/her data available from external source. This testing is especially important for payment systems and other applications which use critical data about a user.

Example: User Access Level in Application and Update Bank Account as per the Role.

Compatibility Testing:

Compatibility testing is a type of testing used to ensure compatibility of the system/application/website built with various other objects such as other web browsers, hardware platforms.Compatibility testing can be automated using automation tools or can be performed manually and is a part of non-functional software testing.


Usability Testing:


Checks whether the layout, text and the messages displayed are user friendly and meet the stated requirement.

Cursor is properly positioned, Navigation of cursor.

On-line list displayed in proper sort sequence.

Project screen standards are adhered to (i.e., colors, common field lengths, protected fields, error highlighting, cursor position, etc.)
