4 Test Coverage Since the term “certification” has the same root as the term “certainty”, one might be tempted to think that black-box tests can provide conclusive evidence that a software product holds (or does not hold) a given property. For instance, can we use black-box testing to prove to a software purchaser’s satisfaction that the execution of the software product she is buying will never require more than 1 MByte of user memory? Unfortunately, this need for conclusive evidence clashes with a theoretical limitation of software testing.

Dijkstra, “The Humble Programmer”, Turing Award Lecture, 1972, Communications of the ACM, 15(10). 3 Black-box tests can also be used to discover failures, such as crashes. 4 Test-related literature often uses the term test set to indicate a set of test cases. , for displaying results or terminating the test execution). For the sake of conciseness, throughout this book we will loosely use the term test case as a synonym of “test case value”. ) White-box tests have a very different aim: to ensure that some aspects of some code property are exercised in the hope that this will reveal any errors not otherwise detected.
