  • Black-box testing
    Black-box testing takes an external perspective of the test object as a basis on which to derive test cases. These tests can be functional or non-functional, though usually functional. The test designer selects valid and invalid inputs and determines the correct output. There is no knowledge of the test object's internal structure.
