I am in testing for two years but I haven't done black box testing. My new project requires black box testing.
So can any one please tell me where do I start.what do I need.can some one guide me.
If you've done white box testing before, this means you already know quite some techniques.
I tend to say, try to apply them using another point of view.
In white box testing you knew the logic of the code, in black box testing you can apply the same techniques using the knowledge of the business.
In other words: for the code you could draw a flowchart or other model and then testing it, so that you are sure all paths of the code are tested. You can do a similar task for a business process.
This is one way to start with black box testing.
I can understand being in testing for 2 years with no exposure to white-box testing, but no exposure to black-box testing is remarkable. If you have ever installed a new software product that you interact with, you are black-box testing what it is doing. Are you familiar with test case development and scripting? Shouldn't you be reading something about testing if you have been at it for 2 years, and know about the basics? I don't want to discourage you, but how do you plan to successfully test your application with so little preparation, submit your test results to this forum or something? The above comments are all to the point, but they will certainly make no sense unless you have a better idea of what you are getting yourself into (although, I would have thought 2 years might be enough to see the light).
hi if we explain black box testing ite very easy just you need to know that what input you are giving in application and as per the functionality you must be know the expected result or out put. without knowing the technical part of the application you can do the black box testing. but functionality wise you should be expert to do black box testing.
