Software Engineering

Unit I

Topic Name Testing Principles



Need of testing, Basic concepts errors, faults, 06 defects, failures, test bed, unit testing, integration testing system, system testing, regression testing, alpha, beta and acceptance testing , functional testing, performance testing, recovery testing, white box testing, black box testing, verification and validation . Testing Life Cycle Roles and activities, 06 Test Planning forming a test team, develop test plan review Test Cases design strategies black box approach random testing, equivalence class partitioning and boundary value analysis. Test case design strategies white box approach test adequacy criteria, coverage and control flow graphs, paths, loop testing, mutation testing. Test execution build test data, life cycle of defect, defect tracking, defect detection stages, defect detection stages, defect types, defect severity, defect analysis and prevention.
