Black box and white box testing

CoverageBrowser can be used both for white box testing and black box testing. If no source code information is available in the instrumentation database (i.e., in the .csmes file), CoverageBrowser will switch to black box testing mode. In this mode, CoverageBrowser has a simpler user interface that does not provide the functionality that is possible only with access to the source code. Nevertheless, even with this reduced functionality, it is still possible to import and manage executions.

A black box instrumentation database can be generated by clicking File > Generate Black-Box Configuration. It is possible to merge such a database into a white box configuration at a later stage.
