    <p class=”MsoNormal”>Effective software testing methods are important in developing software. It assists developers to handle various bugs. As everyone knows, these errors may range from a missing semicolon to an important business need. Hence, software testing becomes an important aspect of a test-driven development atmosphere.</p>
    <p class=”MsoNormal”>According to my knowledge, I have mentioned some best software testing methods</p>
    <p class=”MsoNormal”><b>Static Analysis</b></p>
    <p class=”MsoNormal”>The static analysis does not include the real execution of the code. Rather, it analyses all the possible behaviours that can occur during run time. The best example for this would be compiler optimization.</p>
    <p class=”MsoNormal”><b>Dynamic Analysis</b></p>
    <p class=”MsoNormal”>Dynamic analysis includes program execution to discover bugs and failed functionalities. Plus, part of dynamic analysis is performance properties of the software.</p>
    <p class=”MsoNormal”><b>Black Box Testing</b></p>
    <p class=”MsoNormal”>In the black box testing method, while testing the software tester cannot look at the internal structure of the source code as well as program. While doing the test, professional testers just aims on the inputs and the expected outputs without understanding how the application works and such inputs are processed well.</p>
    <p class=”MsoNormal”><b>White Box Testing</b></p>
    <p class=”MsoNormal”>Unlike black box testing, white box testing is a method that allows tester to see the internal system code.</p>
    <p class=”MsoNormal”>Apart from this, you can find platforms like HeadSpin that allows you to test your software or apps in a hassle-free process.</p>

    <p class=”MsoNormal”>Software testing methods are critical for ensuring the quality and functionality of software applications. These methods can be broadly categorized into several types based on different criteria. Here are the primary software testing methods:</p>

      <li class=”MsoNormal”><b>Manual Testing</b>:
      <ul style=”margin-top: 0cm;” type=”disc”>
      <li class=”MsoNormal”><b>Exploratory Testing</b>: Involves exploring the software without any predefined tests to identify defects.
      <li class=”MsoNormal”><b>Ad-Hoc Testing</b>: Informal testing without any structured approach or documentation.
      <li class=”MsoNormal”><b>Usability Testing</b>: Ensures the software is user-friendly and meets the end-user requirements.
      <li class=”MsoNormal”><b>Smoke Testing</b>: Preliminary testing to check the basic functionality of the software.
