Techniques followed by the Glass Box are:

  • Path Coverage: It involves in the testing of all the possible path which would include branches, path, and statements of the code 
  • Branch Coverage: This method makes sure to test all the branches at least once by running a trail of test
  • Statement Coverage: This has the objective of making all the programming statements functioning at a finite number of testing

Preferences of Glass Box Testing:

  •  Forces test designer to reason precisely about execution
  •  Reveals mistakes in "shrouded" code
  •  Spots the Dead Code or different issues as for best programming hones.

Impediments to Glass Box Testing:  

  • Expensive as one needs to invest both energy and money to perform white box testing.  
  • Every probability that few lines of code is missed unintentionally.  
  • In-profundity information about the programming dialect is important to perform white box testing.
