4.1 Overview

Every program can be viewed as a combination of code, data, and transactions. In order to test these, one must design tests. Control flow graphs that have evolved from basic flowcharts are the most used models in test design. The notations of control flow charts can be used in structural testing to check the correctness of the code, in data flow testing to check transformation of data, and in transaction flow testing to check functionality of the code. In this chapter, we discuss representation and use of control flow chart in structural testing. In the following chapters, we discuss on use of control flow chart notations in transaction flow testing and data flow testing.
