Does White box testing requires detailed programming skills?

We need to write test cases that ensure the complete coverage of the program logic.

For this we need to know the program well i.e. We should know the specification and the code to be tested. Knowledge of programming languages and logic is required for this type of testing.


Not possible for testing each and every path of the loops in the program. This means exhaustive testing is impossible for large systems.

This does not mean that WBT is not effective. By selecting important logical paths and data structure for testing is practically possible and effective.
