The Light Side of Testing: Whitebox Testing

JCD
3:05-4:20, Alexander

Abstract

Whitebox Testing involves testing software with deep knowledge of the internals of the code. This is a survey presentation, covering a broad set of topics meant to expand your interests and provide self-study opportunities. We will cover: * Schools of Thought: Where we have been, why testing has changed. * Limits: Why you need both the light and dark sides. * Techniques: Static Analysis, Security Analysis, Unit, Integration and System Testing * Tooling to make that blackbox system more white. * Automation techniques, including both white and blackbox techniques. Almost none of the content here will be a repeat of the Blackbox Testing presentation. While it is not required, it is recommended that you attend the Blackbox Testing presentation.
