You can buy the best tennis equipment ever, but that does not mean the next day you’ll play tennis like a pro. Software testing is no different: it won’t deliver impeccable results unless you know who, how, what and when to use it.

To deliver high-quality software development proper testing is required. This is a software development process in which business-critical software is scrutinized for quality, accuracy, and performance. Software testing is used to ensure that expected product features run correctly as intended.

Methodology, either Agile or classical, is designed to prevent faults from occurring, thereby producing higher quality software, reducing costs, increasing speed to market, and improving end-user satisfaction.

This is how software testing is implemented

Manual software testing – also called black box testing.

Done in person, the tester manually executes tests without using any automation tools. Playing the role of the end-user, the tester interacts with the software or clicks through the application, testing the functional and non-functional behavior. It requires a certain mindset, patience, creativity and an open-mind.

Black box means, that the tester does not have knowledge about the code. Basically, the tester verifies the input and output, not knowing what happens in between. The scope of the manual tester is to break the software and understand how it should respond to various scenarios. An expected result of the scenarios is being set, helping the testers identifying bugs and report them.

Automated software testing – also called white box testing.

Performed by a machine or using different tools that execute a test script, automated testing represents the methodology where testers know about the code and the structure of the application. Automated software testing is critical for continuous delivery and continuous testing. It searches in memory contents, data tables, file contents, and internal program states of an application and determines if the product is behaving as expected.
