More checking versus testing

Posted in Software testing by testing in London on December 9, 2009

From InfoQ

A person who needs a clear, complete, up-to-date, unambiguous specification to proceed is a checker, not a tester. A person who needs a test script to proceed is a checker, not a tester. A person who does nothing but to compare a program against some reference is a checker, not a tester.
