Black Box Testing

Provides information about black box testing tools. This term is used to refer to tools that take a black box view of the system under test; they do not rely on the availability of software source code and in general take an outside-in view of the software, which means that they try to explore the software's behavior from the outside. The focus is on black box testing technologies that are unique to software.
