Top 9 Software Testing Techniques And Their Applications

Software testing is performed to determine the quality of a particular computer program. The process is used to analyze the shortcoming of the software in the process of developing. It’s a procedural and analytical set of series activity to check out the feasibility of the development work. These are performed at various level one of which is Penetration Testing Process. The main purpose of this test is to check the security of a computer system or network. A similar type of activity is also conducted to determine the usability of the firewall to see how much hacking activities it can block. Usually, testing is confined one which has to be performed according to the statements of the client. Testing is categorized into many types which are selectively very important.


1) Black Box Testing: Black box can be easily by any person who even doesn’t know the functionality and codes implemented on the program. This process will be checking whether the given output is perfect or not. This won’t check the internal codes and their functionality.

2) Visual Testing: This process finds out the exact point of failure in the software. By this testing method information related to the reason of exact failure can be analyzed.

3) White Box Testing: This test is based on checking the internal logic of the application’s code. Also known as the Glass box test its must to know about the internal codes working for this type of testing.

4) Unit Testing: This test involves testing of the components or the modules on an individual basis. This is mostly done by the programmer as it requires a detailed knowledge of the code involve in the process and design.

5) Integration Testing: Testing the integrated components to check the combined functionality after integration. Components are generally code modules, individual application, client and server applications. This type of testing process is generally useful for client/server and distributed system.

6) Functional Testing: This testing process focuses on the output working status irrespective of the internal parts involved in the application.

7) System Testing: The whole of the system is tested as per the requirement. It is a type of a black box testing where the knowledge related to the internal code is not necessary. The external output of the software product is tested with respect to the requirement as mentioned in the document. This technique of software testing in India actually enables you to test, verify and validate the application as per the client requirement.

8) Load Testing: It is a performance testing to check the system performance under load situation. The website is tested under a range of loads to determine the loophole where the response time degrades.

9) Beta Testing: This testing is generally conducted by end-users or others. This is the final testing which is done before an application is launched for commercial purpose.
