    Well...

    That all depends on HOW you test it, doesn't it?
    If you indeed only look to the functional requirements and not the technical, you get some test-software with the "class" then you are testing black box.

    Yup.. Its all how you want to test code...

    Could be possible.. you write some units test to verify your class.. This come under White Box. Which is quite commonly used.

    May be, you would like to test the functional part where the class is used.. that will come user Black Box.

    Re: Question on black box and white box Testing

    Agreed with both answers above.
    The point is that black/white box testing is not a distinction who tests, but from what point of view it is tested. If knowledge of the internal working of the application is used, then we talk about white box testing. If only the interface is used - you put something in it and you know what to expect, without knowing how the application is internally constructed - then we talk about black box testing.
