In this tutorial, we will learn more about Static Testing Techniques. Various Software testing techniques are outlined here:
Static Testing Techniques
In the static testing technique software code is not executed. Software code, algorithms are inspected, reviewed to uncover code-related defects and enhance code quality.
These techniques can be further divided into the following types:
- Informal Review
- Formal Technical Review
An inspection is a process of examining project artifacts( like design specifications, project plans, etc, production lines with an intent to identify defects or to find the defective units. Inspections are carried out by trained individuals to identify defects using a well-defined process.
A walkthrough is a meeting session in which the organizer walks through a project artifact to the participants. The participants ask questions and make comments. The main aim of Walktrough is to discuss possible errors in the artifact. For example, the code walkthrough session.
Informal reviews are review meetings with no formal process or procedures are followed. These meetings are not documented.
Formal Technical Review
Formal technical review meetings are structured review meetings.
These are documented and MOM reports are sent across to the meeting participants. The software team assesses the quality of the project artifact in the meeting.
