Testing Techniques is nothing but required Testing approach to be followed during testing. for exp: if we want to check the functionality of a module , then we go for black box testing....

The testing tehniques are of two types:

1) white box

2) black box

Let me know am i correct or not. some guys say that the above are not testing techniques. plz clarify my doubt

   Testing techniques

 1.White box testing:-Used to test internal based application.

 2.Black box testing:-Used to test functional based opr requirement based application.

 3.Gray box testing:-Used to test web applications.It is a combination of both White box & Black box testing.

There are 4 types of testing techniques
1. Static Testing
2. White Box Testing
3. Black Box Testing
4. Grey Box Testing

1. Static Testing: Testing of an application without execution on the computer  or without executing them through values.

2. White Box Testing: Here testing is done on code written, like loop coverage, statement coverage, execution loop coverage. Testing done on the code .

3. Black Box Testing: Here testing is done to check the behaviour of the application. Here the behaviour of the application should be towards the Customer's Requirements.

Grey Box Testing: COmbination of Black box and white box is called Grey box testing.
Integration testing is an Grey Box Testing which includes both the functionality and coding testing.

Black Box testing: testing for the behaviour of the application
White box testing:testing for the logic of the pgm
Grey box              : combination of black and white box.
Red box                : h/w & s/w testing

  Was this answer useful?  Yes

There are 4 types testing

1) Black box - means related with functionality of the application
2) White box - related with internal structure of the build or application
3) Grey box - related with internal structure as wel as functionality means a single person can do development as wel as testing.
4) Red box - realted to product testing (means hard ware testing he or she should be good hardware testing eg: mobile is an product , printer etc they check the product not the application, application means nothing but our software say XP operating system , in bank they are useing banking application that is black box,

Testing the printer, mobile hand set, hard disk this is redbox testing.
While doing black box testing means application testing

We are useing some techniques they are:

  • Equivalence Partitioning.
  • Boundary Value Analysis.
  • Cause-Effect Graphing.
  • Error-Guessing.

While doing codeing or just call while doing white box testing he/she uses some white box testing techniques they are:

  • Statement coverage
  • Decision coverage
  • Condition coverage
  • Decision-condition coverage
  • Multiple condition coverage
  • Basis Path Testing
  • Loop testing
  • Data flow testing

Just want to inform you, Black Box and White Box are Testing Type not Testing Technique, So friend don't try to bother definition of Testing Related Article,
Testing Technique are as:
Black Box Testing:
1) Equivalence Partioning
2) Boundary Value analysis
3) State Transition Diagram
4) Error Guessing
5) Cause Effect Method

White Box Testing
1) Path Coverage
2) Condition coverage
3) Branch Coverage

I think now it will be cleared ;

Testing Techniques are three different types:

1. The techniques which are based on specification is black-box testing.

2. The techniques which are based on internal of the program is white-box testing(structured based techniques).

3. The techniques which are based on experienced is experienced-based techniques.

If we go into depth then each individual techniques have their own procedural testings.

Testing Technique is a procedure for selecting or designing test based on structural or functional mode of the software successful at finding bugs best practice a way of deriving good test cases a way of objectively measuring a test effort.

Testing techniques is nothing but the testing approach that we are going to follow..in functional testing we are going to follow the black box testing techniques. To prepare the optimal documents of scenarios and test cases.. 1)BVA(boundary value analysis)is used to validate the boundaries of input and output fields with size and range
2)ECP(equivalence class partition) is used to validate the type of inputs and outputs
3)DT(decision table)is used to validate the mapping in b/w inputs and outputs 4)Orthogonal Arrays, is used to remove the redundancy(repetitions) in decision table(DT)
5)State transition flow, is used write the test scenarios in order with respect to functionality
6)Error guessing, Is used to identify the defects in s/w before testing

Read the answers above. A slight modification to your answers. Testing techniques are of various types. Each with its own strength and weaknesses. Each testing technique falls into one of the many categories. Broadly speaking there are two main categories.
Static & Dynamic
Static Testing: Testing that is performed at the implementation level without execution of the software is called static testing. And the techniques that we use for the same are Static testing techniques. Eg: Reviews, Walkthroughs etc.
Dynamic Testing Techniques:
Dynamic testing techniques are further divided into 3 main categories,
-Specification Based (Black Box)
-Structure Based (White Box)
-Experience Based
Specification based techniques include: Equivalence Partitioning, Boundary Value Analysis, Decision Tables, State Transition, Use case testing etc.
For Structure based techniques, we have Statement coverage, Decision coverage, Conditions and multiple conditions.
For Experience based techniques we use Error guessing and Exploratory testing.
How do they help?
Every testing technique has its pros and cons in determinig the effectioveness of the testing performed. For Example: BVA might be good to check the data at the boundaries.
Specification based techniques are applied at all the levels of testing right from Component to UAT where specification exists.
The same is with Structure based techniques, used mainly in Component and Integration testing.
Hope this gives a clear picture of Testing techniques.

Sorry friends... but Black box and white box are neither type nor technique of testing...!
Types : Static and Dynamic.
Method: Black/White/Gray box
Level: Unit/Integration/System/User acceptance Testing.
There are different testing technique for BBT and WBT:
For BBT: ECP, BVA, Error guessing, decision table, State transition diagram etc.
For WBT: Statement, branch, path testing
