About this app

The glossary has been arranged in a single section of definitions ordered alphabetically. Some terms are preferred to other synonymous ones, in which case, the definition of the preferred term appears, with the synonymous ones referring to that. For example structural testing refers to white box testing. For synonyms, the “See” indicator is used. “See also” cross-references are also used. They assist the user to quickly navigate to the right index term.

“See also” cross-references are constructed for relationships such as broader term to a narrower term, and overlapping meaning between two terms.
