In previous posts we discuss a lot about testing, types of testing extra but here we are going to discuss something which is very important for every novel software tester, as this is the most asked question in a software testing interview.

Before discussing the difference points let's quickly understand what is black box testing and what is white box testing??

White box testing is that type of software testing in which the inner structure is clearly known to the software tester. It is also called transparent testing.
Whereas black box testing is that type of software testing in which the internal structure or code is not known to the software tester.
