Subject Black Box Tesing v White Box Testing
Date Wed, 04 Dec 2019 06:16:34 GMT
During the ADA course  I attended,  the teacher mentioned that no inherited
code or libraries are used in these safety critical environments. Therefore
there are no unknown internals.  Only known internals.

.exe  and  DLLs (C,C++) have unknown internals (AFAIK DLLs can't be
decompiled).  So at the beginning of a project you have made a decision
that you will be doing black box testing and using unknown internals.

In a best practice environment finding one self doing black box testing is
avoided altogether.

I also chose Java because one can decompile  classes , so any unknown
behaviour can be identified , so one is in a white box testing environment
from the outset.

Point being avoid black box environments.
