Black Box Testing

In Black Box Testing we examines the functionality of the application based on the specification. There is no need to have any programming language knowledge. Development team will give us the Stage/Demo link on which the application is hosted, we need to run the tool on that given link. Before starting the testing we need to check that the provided link is only Demo link it’s not a production application link. Please also aware, don’t run any tool on the public application. It can be harmful for that application and the application owner can take a legal action against you.

Commonly used tools to perform Black Box Testing:
