White Box Techniques…

Even when Black box testing techniques are cheaper and easier to perform than White-Box; white-box should be a priority while we are trying to roll out. We all know about time pressure, about testers availability and testers skills but this technique can save us from big headaches:
* It’s great to validate the documentation, in some cases to create it. I’ve been dealing with some companies that prefer developing than documenting. If you check the structure of the application you have to able to complete all models.
* It’s great to create functional tests cases from the code. It might have more impact and find more bugs. It might check some code impossible to reach with 100% functional test.
All companies thinks, when you mention White Box testing that they need a NASA engineer, it’s true that not all testers know how to do this but is not more expensive that leaving bugs into the code.
