BANGALORE, INDIA: Basis path testing, also known as Structured Testing, is the primary code-based testing strategy recommended by McCabe Software and supported by McCabe IQ.


McCabe IQ also supports various other code-based testing strategies including line, branch, and boolean (MC/DC). The fundamental idea behind basis path testing is that decision outcomes within a software function should be tested independently.

The intuitive appeal of this idea is typically adequate to generate interest, but is certainly not a justification for implementation. After all, implementing a new testing procedure requires effort, and developers want to understand the benefits before making a commitment.

This means that the information about the benefits of the technology needs to be communicated to those who will actually be using the technology. This whitepaper provides an overview of the benefits of basis path testing.
