Posts Tagged ‘Axioms’

Friends… today I am going to write about some axioms of the Software Testing.
First of all the word “axiom” – It means a self evident or universally recognized truth.
An established rule/principle or law.

We should always keep in mind one thing as NEVER say that “The Software (Product) is tested completely!” Followed by it as “There are no BUGS in it!” These kind of statements will definitely result in many harsh issues. See “To err is human!” No entity in this world will be without defects or bugs!
So avoid using the above mentioned 2 terms for the S/W Product.

Following are some Software Testing Axioms –

  • It is impossible to test the program completely.
  • Software Testing is Risk based exercise.
  • Testing can’t show the bugs that doesn’t exist.
  • The more bugs you find, the more bugs are there.
  • Not all the bugs you find will be fixed.
  • Product specifications are never fixed.
