Transparent Box Testing:
This is an alias for White box testing. Refer to White-Box Testing for more details.
A variation of top-down testing where the progressive integration of components follows the implementation of subsets of the requirements, as opposed to the integration of components by successively lower levels.
Top down integration testing is an incremental testing approach for integration testing where in testing of top level modules are done first before moving on to testing of branch modules. The component at the top of the hierarchy is tested first, with lower level components being simulated by stubs. Tested components are then used to test lower level components. The process is repeated until the lowest level components have been tested. This helps in finding design issues in the initial stages of the Integration test. See Integration Testing also.
