Answer / brindha

White box testing (a.k.a. clear box testing, glass box testing, transparent box testing, or structural testing) is a method of testing software that tests internal structures or workings of an application as opposed to its functionality (black box testing).

White box testing techniques are:

1. Statement coverage
2. Decision coverage
3. Condition coverage
4. Path coverage (done using cyclomatic complexity)

Black-box testing is a method of testing software that tests the functionality of an application as opposed to its internal structures or workings.

Black Box testing techniques are:

1. Boundary Value Analysis.
2. Equivalence Partitioning
3. Decision Table.
4. Cause Effecting Analysis

Answer / pavan

There are 2 types of testing techniques

1. Black Box testing: It is a method of testing in which the black box test engineer will perform testing on the functional part of the application without having any knowledge on the structural part of an application.

2. White box testing: It is a method of testing in which the white box test engineer will perform testing on the structural part of an application. Usually the developers are the White box test engineers.

Apart from this 2 techniques there are one more desired technique called gray box testing.

Gray box testing: It is a method of testing in which one will perform testing on both the functional part and structural part of an application. Usually who has knowledge on the structural part of an application will perform this testing.
