Software testing is a critical element of software quality assurance and represents the ultimate review of specification, design and code generation. Software has become a driving force. It is the engine that drives business decision making and serves as the basis for the modern scientific investigation and the engineering problem solving. It is embedded in systems of all kinds: transportation, telecommunication, medical, military, industrial process, entertainment, office products etc. The failure of software effects economy, data, time, reputation etc all in negative manner. All the disadvantageous consequences with system failure are motivating forces for well planned software through testing

    n early step for most black-box testing methods is to identify a set of categories and choices (or their equivalents) from the specification. The identification is often performed in an ad hoc manner, thus the quality of categories and choices is in doubt. Poorly identified categories and...
