Gray Box Testing

Gray Box Testing is the combining of black box, and white box testing. It involves having access to internal data structure and algorithms, but the testing is still done at a user's level, therefore as black box testing. It is said to be mostly used in web services applications since the Internet is quite stable.

Advantages:

  • The testers do need to have the source-code while testing.

Disadvantages:

  • The testing is done based on limited knowledge of the internal code.
  • Difficult to resolve bugs as the internal code is not known and it is not easy to determine from where the problems are coming
