Testing is essential in application development because it helps identify and eliminate defects. One of the most used testing methods is Black Box testing, which involves deeply examining the application’s functionality without knowing its internal workings. The Equivalence Partition method is frequently used in Black Box testing to divide input values into groups and select test cases from each group. Potential errors can be identified by testing the available features with appropriate test cases, and future improvements can be made to ensure seamless application performance. In addition, testing results also serve as documentation and research for future development. By using this method, the developers of the VR Gamelan Saron application can ensure that its quality meets user expectations to improve its quality to provide an optimal user experience. In summary, proper testing is crucial in application development, and the Equivalence Partition method is an effective tool foridentifying and eliminating potential issues.
