what is software testing process?

by Atul Jaiswal Blogger

The software testing is the method of testing any software or application and the agenda is to make it error free to improve the overall quality of the software or application. Software testing also gives a view of all the risks involved while implementing a particular software in a business. The whole testing process involves, the process of executing a program in a business, finding the software bugs and analyzing the use of the software product in the business. Software testing involves the execution software program to know the more uses of the same software product. Software testing involves the following testing:

  • It is to test whether the particular software meets the requirement for which the software is designed.
  • It is used to test whether the software responds to the inputs correctly or not.
  • It is used to test whether the software performs the functions in an acceptable time.
  • It is used to test whether the software gives the result in stakeholder desire.

The software testing is mainly the job of a software tester, software developer, project manager or the end user.


  • Black box testing method: this is the technique of testing the software without having any knowledge about the inside working of the application. This method is also called functional based testing or the specification based testing. In this method, the testers only check whether the software does those functions for which it is designed for. In this type of method, the knowledge of coding is not required. In this method, the tester usually works at the interface level. This type of method is suitable where there are large coding segments and the code access is not required in the testing process.
  • White box testing: white box testing is the method in which the tester is familiar with the internal structure or design or implementation of the software. In this method, the tester investigates the internal logic of the code. This method is also known as glass testing or pen box testing method. In this method of control flow testing, data flow testing, branch testing techniques are used. This method is used in helping the optimizing the code. As the tester has the knowledge of the structure of the code so it becomes very easy for the tester to find out which data can be useful for testing the application.
  • Grey box testing: grey box testing is a technique of testing the software application with the limited knowledge of internal workings of the software. This method of testing is the combination of black box testing and the white box testing method. This method is best suitable for algorithm testing. This method is the most time-consuming method of software testing. By using this method data domain and internal boundaries can be tested.

Hence with the help of software testing, an independent information about the quality of the software can be examined. Also, it helps in analyzing the risk of using the software in the business.
