Debugging and whitebox testing goes hand in hand and
typically done by the developers.
Debugging is done to verify that the program runs smoothly
and running program shouldn't cause any unwanted response
by the machine.
whitebox testing is nothing but running the program and
verify the actual behavior/result of the functionality with
expected result as predetermined.
