hi,
What is equivalence partitions in software testing can anybody please explain with explain??

suggestion here is do some googling before putting up the questions. As these are very basics in black box testing

Equivalence Partitioning is a software testing technique that divides the input data of a software unit into partitions from which test cases can be derived.

Test cases are designed to cover each partition.

Suppose a software component takes values from 0 to 10, then "&lt;0" is invalid partition, "0 to 10" is valid partition and "&gt;10" is again invalid partition.

So "&lt;0", "0-10" &amp; "&gt;10" are three test cases for equivalence partitioning for the above example.

Just to elaborate on this.. The NMap technique you'll learn in a basic electrical engineering course is a great way of coming up with equivalence classes. (This technique is used to simplify circuitry and gates necessary)

However, if you do a Google search on this, you'll get like a billion references to Network Maps. You'll probably want to get a 1st year electrical engineering text book and look up circuit simplification.

Hello all,

Equivalence partitioning is a software testing technique that divides the input data of a software unit into partitions of data from which test cases can be derived. It is also called as Equivalence Class Partitioning.

In this testing technique we create partitions among the data which lies in the same range or same class.

To check the behavior of the program it is sufficient to select one test case out of each partition.

The values within one partition are considered to be "equivalent". Thus the number of test cases can be reduced considerably.

It is based on an evaluation of equivalence classes for an input condition. An equivalence class represents a set of valid or invalid states for input conditions.

Sitam, you and your colleagues from Mindfire Solutions (mfsi_xxxxxx) might be better-respected if you posted something that included some real knowledge on your part, rather than the ability to use Google, Cut and Paste.

Well said Peter.
