Static & Dynamic Analysis in Software Testing
Static analysis involves going through the code in order to find out any possible defect in the code. Dynamic analysis involves executing the code and analyzing the output. After reading the basic introductions refer the more detailed pdf tutorials about Static & Dynamic Analysis.
Static analysis : This may be the testing you are doing most of the time at your coding. While coding there may be a lot of typing errors, syntax error, loop structure, code termination etc etc . This should be fixed by inspecting ( thorough reading ) of your code. You program will run only after clearing all the coding defects by static analysis.
Dynamic analysis : Now you need to check your program output whether it is the desired output or not. This is called as dynamic analysis in testing. You will compile the program and check the output, then will do the necessary changes in codes .
