New Testing Forum Available

Over the past few months I have been swamped with questions concerning testing and quality assurance. I never believed that a blog was a good mechanism for asking and responding to questions so I have made a new forum available.

Software Engineering

Currently there is only a forum for QA and Testing. As the need arises or if people ask, I will create new forums for software engineering topics.

A huge thank you goes out to Igor who set up the forum and does all of my system administration. Thanks Igor!

  5. i need help on answering a black and white box testing question..
    Please Help
    A single element buffer can hold an integer number from the following range: -5 to 5.
    If the buffer is ‘empty’, a number can be inserted to the buffer, but deletion results in an error. If the buffer is ‘full’, a number cannot be inserted (i.e. an error should be reported), but deletion will work (i.e. the number stored in the buffer will be removed).
    Consider two operations on such a buffer: insert(number) and delete.
    A pseudo code for delete is given below:
    if status==empty then error
    else { status=full;
    if content0 then write (“positive”)
    else write (“zero”) }
    (i) Use a ‘black box’ approach to generate test cases for insert(number).
    (ii) Use a ‘white box’ approach to generate test cases for delete. You are also required to draw a control graph for this operation.
