Have any of you ever heard of Red Box and Yellow Box testing?
If so, what is the context and what do they test??
I know about Empty Box Testing! It's used to test Vapor-Ware or Newbie IQ! Just kidding! [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Red box testing = acceptance testing
And I always thought red box testing is testing with WinRunner, as it comes in a red box... [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]
And there's also yellow and green box testing, but for this I couldn't find further information (except the word itself).
Redbox testing...yes...we use it in the UK.
There was a discussion here :
Yellow Box testing is when you take the cowards way out and do as you are told rather than do the correct work.

Yellow show testing?
If you're a slave to your free associations, does it automatically become something else?
Mark do you mean Yellow Snow Testing?
Darn, I did do a thorough search, or I least I thought I did. I also look in Wikipedia. Guess I should do what I preach.
Bru, I can't find a single reference in your document about Red Box Testing.
Great! Just more fracking vocabulary confusion. Geez we are our own worst enemies... I mean what is it with some people, do they have to be like the Marketing/Sales Wonks and come up with the 'new cool phrase' just so they can sound intelligent.

Do we need to update this list?
