White Box Testing V0.2

  1. 1. White box testing
  2. 2. Objective <ul><li>What is White box testing </li></ul><ul><li>Techniques of white box testing </li></ul><ul><li>What is Grey Box testing </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>Testing the internal structure of the software </li></ul><ul><li>Understand the code and the code will set you free! </li></ul><ul><li>White-box testing is testing that takes into account the internal mechanism of a system or component </li></ul><ul><li>It’s also known as Structural testing, clear box testing and glass box testing </li></ul>What is it?
  4. 4. Techniques <ul><li>Statement coverage </li></ul><ul><li>Loop testing </li></ul><ul><li>Path testing </li></ul><ul><li>Branch testing </li></ul>
  5. 5. Statement Coverage <ul><li>100% method coverage: All methods in all classes are called. </li></ul><ul><li>100% statement coverage: All statements in a method are executed. </li></ul><ul><li>void foo (int a, b, c, d, e) { </li></ul><ul><li>if (a == 0) { </li></ul><ul><li>return; } </li></ul><ul><li>int x = 0; </li></ul><ul><li>if ((a==b) OR ((c==d) AND bug(a) )) { </li></ul><ul><li>x =1; } </li></ul><ul><li>e = 1/x; } </li></ul>
  6. 6. Loop testing <ul><li>Test the ‘ for’ and ‘ while’ loops in the code. </li></ul><ul><li>Look for exceptions of infinite loop. </li></ul><ul><li>Cause execution of loop to be skipped. </li></ul><ul><li>Loop to be executed exactly once. </li></ul><ul><li>Loop to be executed more than once </li></ul>
  7. 7. Path testing <ul><li>Make sure all the paths are covered. </li></ul><ul><li>Determine the paths </li></ul><ul><li>Construct a logic flow chart </li></ul>
  8. 8. Path testing: Determine Paths <ul><li>FindMean (FILE ScoreFile) </li></ul><ul><li>{ float SumOfScores = 0.0; </li></ul><ul><ul><li>int NumberOfScores = 0; </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>float Mean=0.0; float Score; </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Read(ScoreFile, Score); </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>while (! EOF(ScoreFile) { </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>if (Score > 0.0 ) { </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>SumOfScores = SumOfScores + Score; </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>NumberOfScores++; </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>} </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Read(ScoreFile, Score); </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>} </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>/* Compute the mean and print the result */ </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>if (NumberOfScores > 0) { </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Mean = SumOfScores / NumberOfScores; </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>printf(“ The mean score is %f ”, Mean); </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>} else </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>printf (“No scores found in file ”); </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>} </li></ul>1 2 3 4 5 7 6 8 9
  9. 9. Path testing: Logic flow diagram
  10. 10. Branch testing <ul><li>Also known as Conditional Testing </li></ul><ul><li>Make sure that each possible outcome from a condition is tested at least once. </li></ul><ul><li>if (i=true) </li></ul><ul><li> printf (“I am true”) </li></ul><ul><li>else </li></ul><ul><li> printf (“I am false”) </li></ul><ul><li>Possible Testcases are </li></ul><ul><li>1. i=true; 2. i=false </li></ul>
  11. 11. Grey box testing <ul><li>What is it? </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Mixture of both black box and white box. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Test the system with a basic outlook of internals. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>When you do? </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Once the functionality is developed </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Example </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Database testing </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Using SQL </li></ul></ul>
  12. 12. Grey box testing: SQL <ul><li>Some times testers may have to use SQL to help in the black box testing. </li></ul><ul><li>Types of Grey box using SQL </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Data Validation </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Data security </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Query for system updates </li></ul></ul>
  13. 13. Grey box testing: My examples <ul><li>Testing I did! </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Test the inventory by using the inventory table </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Reservation retrieval </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Data encryption: Credit Card number </li></ul></ul>
