Seven Principle of  software Testing : 

Testing shows presence of defects. : No application is bug free.

  • Exhaustive testing is not possible. : End to End testing impossible. With all combinations.
  • Early testing. Testing should start early as document creation.
  • Defect clustering. Small number of bugs contain more bugs
  • Pesticide paradoxSmall module have more defects.
  • Testing is context dependent. Ecommerce testing is different than Insurance product testing.
  • Absence of errors fallacy. Software testing is not about finding and fixing defect, it's all about operational use.
