What is test design technique?

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…]

What is Test design tools in software testing?

Test design tools help to create test cases, or at least test inputs (which is part of a test case). If an automated oracle is available, then the tool can also make the expected result, so in point of fact it can generate test cases (rather than just test inputs). [Read more…]

But when we come to make a test case we need to be very specific. In fact now we need the exact and detailed specific input. But just having some values to input to the system is not a test, if you don’t know what the system is supposed to do with the inputs, you will not be able to tell that whether your test has passed or failed.
