5 DOMAIN-BASED TESTING
Why is this chapter worth reading?
In this chapter, you will learn how to apply equivalence partitioning (EP), boundary value analysis (BVA) and domain analysis. We show that for simple borders only three test cases (ON, OFF, IN/OUT) points are enough. We present how to use these methods through our TVM and other non-trivial examples.
Everybody knows that there can be different goals for testing. For example, if the goal is finding defects in a software system, then a successful test is a test that makes the system perform incorrectly, hence exposing a defect. However, when the goal is to show that the software meets its requirements, then a successful test shows that the system operates as intended. In both cases, we ...
