  • Subject: Computer Science - Software Engineering

In the context of robustness testing, the boundary between the valid and invalid regions of the input space can be an interesting source of erroneous inputs. Knowing where a specific software under test (SUT) has a boundary is essential for validation in relation to req... View more
