    What is Gray box testing, and how different is this from provocative testing?

    Hi,

    Can any one tell me what Gray Box testing exactly about.

    We have been doing some provocative testing, where we enter some data at the backend and see how the application responds OR handles this unexpected data...

    So how are these two test types different?

    Hi gray box testing is a combination of balck box and white box testing. The concept of gray box testin gis that, if the tester knows the complete product information from inside, then the tester can test the product better from inside and even from outside. This will help you in making better choices of the test cases which leads to a limited number of test cases.

Test engineer with internal structural knowledge performing black box testing is considered to be a grey box testing.
