A test design technique basically helps us to select a good set of tests from the total number of all possible tests for a given system. There are many different types of software testing technique, each with its own strengths and weaknesses. Each individual technique is good at finding particular types of defect and relatively poor at finding other types. [Read more…]
- Structure-based techniques serve two purposes: test coverage measurement and structural test case design.
- They are often used first to assess the amount of testing performed by tests derived from specification-based techniques, i.e. to assess coverage.
- They are then used to design additional tests with the aim of increasing the test coverage.
- Structure-based test design techniques are a good way of generating additional test cases that are different from existing tests.
- They can help ensure more breadth of testing, in the sense that test cases that achieve 100% coverage in any measure will be exercising all parts of the software from the point of view of the items being covered.
- In experience-based techniques, people’s knowledge, skills and background are of prime importance to the test conditions and test cases. [Read more…]
- Static testing is the testing of the software work products manually, or with a set of tools, but they are not executed. [Read more…]
Static test techniques provide a great way to improve the quality and productivity of software development. It includes the reviews and provides the overview of how they are conducted. The primary objective of static testing is to improve the quality of software products by assisting engineers to recognize and fix their own defects early in the software development process.

By design we mean to create a plan for how to implement an idea and technique is a method or way for performing a task. So, Test Design is creating a set of inputs for given software that will provide a set of expected outputs. [Read more…]
