during the program debugging stage, the people who will use the program test the software.
This is where the testers are asked to create some kind of test-case scenario, usually in the form of a question, that tests the software or data set. The testers are then given the software to try and ensure that it performs as expected.
In many modern production environments, testers are expected to perform both a manual and automated test. The manual test performs the code and is intended to be a proof-of-concept for a production environment that will be used by production personnel.
The automated test is intended to be a proof-of-concept for a production environment that will be used by production personnel. In contrast, the manual test is meant to be an example of a production environment that will be used by the testers who will be using the software in the production environment.
The manual test is also called a “black box” test because it is intended to be part of an automated test suite. The white box test is a white box test which is generally a single, isolated, and “black” box test which is used as an example of a production environment. The white box test is intended to be the production environment and is not intended for manual testing.
The white box test is intended for manual testing and is typically referred to as a test case. The black box test is a test procedure that is used for manual testing.
It’s a great idea to separate the testing of code from the testing of the code. The former involves running the code, identifying the results of the code, and confirming they match the expected results. The later is a whole different ball of wax. It is intended to confirm the correctness of the code itself and not to test the correctness of the code’s interactions with other code.
I have always been a big proponent of this. It is not appropriate to test every conceivable interaction between a piece of software and a piece of hardware, especially in the case of real world hardware.
I know, I know. But it’s the same principle that applies to using the internet for your real-world tasks. It is a completely valid practice to use various tools to debug your code, but it is very bad to use that same tool to “test the correctness” of that same code. And that’s what is happening in the program DebugTool in this tutorial.
It seems the DebugTool is testing the code being tested. And since this is a simple program that doesn’t really need to be tested (or even really tested), the DebugTool is testing that the code is working, but not testing its correctness. To a programmer like me, this is a very bad thing. But to a software engineer, its a very good thing.
The point is that the debugger is a great thing to use for debugging other programs, but as I said before, test your program against what you want it to test.
