    Question Black box testing program

    Hello. If you have been in the BT3 forum recently you may have seen my posts, or you may have read my introduction. For those of you who didn't, I'm a software tester.

    Recently, my supervisor has been looking into Black Box testing. It looks like it's a good tool for the final steps of QA (quality assurance). Well, that's where we are right now. She was looking into Quick Test Pro, and I found another program called Smartescript, by Smartesoft. Both are very expensive, and I was thinking that it should be a simple program required to test a web app... So why are they charging thousands of dollars?

    I'm not a programmer, so I don't know much of anything about programming itself. However, I'm interested in learning, and this seems a reasonable place to start; correct me if I'm wrong.

    How hard do you think it would be to write a program that runs random and semi random bits of information (over intranet) through a web application (hosted on a local server), and sends feedback, or system failure information back?

So with that in mind I'd say "Yes" its pretty important.

    Well, if you don't know anything about programming, this may be the equivalent of learning mechanical engineering by building a space ship (well, not quite that bad, but hopefully you get the idea).

    Anyway, it sounds like what you are describing is "fuzzing" and that you desire to test web applications? If this is the case, there are tons of free tools out there that do this already. Google "web app fuzzing" and you will get a ton of hits.

    Good Luck...

    Almost everyone at those links are free, and also, pretty good tools.

    So you're purposely ignoring the rules you agreed to when you signed up for these forums?
    Of course, if you really wanted to have some fun, go to Wal-Mart late at night and ask the greeter if they could help you find trashbags, roll of carpet, rope, quicklime, clorox and a shovel. See if they give you any strange looks. --Streaker69

    I don't understand why people overact so much when someone spams a forum? I mean all he wants is to get an answer to his question ASAP!!! because he is the number 1 priority to the rest of the people here. What does it hurt? Besides the fact that if everyone did so forums would become a useless massive piece of crap ...... hmm egoistic? :b
    Sorry for being harsh if you are in fact new to forums. But for the future remember to follow the rules if you wish be respected and answered. That and common sense will get you a long way.
