THE EIGHT BASIC PRINCIPLES OF TESTING

Following are eight basic principles of testing:

1. Define the expected output or result.
2. Don't test your own programs.
3. Inspect the results of each test completely.
4. Include test cases for invalid or unexpected conditions.
5. Test the program to see if it does what it is not supposed to do as well as what it is supposed to do.
6. Avoid disposable test cases unless the program itself is disposable.
7. Do not plan tests assuming that no errors will be found.
8. The probability of locating more errors in any one module is directly proportional to the number of errors already found in that module.
