When developing software, you will need to write test cases to help ensure that your code is working as expected. Writing good database testing scenarios can go a long way toward improving your application’s reliability and making it easier to maintain in the future.
Articles, tutorials, videos and tools to perform software testing for database development (Oracle, MySQL, SQLServer, PostgeSQL, NoSQL, etc.)
If a SQL server is the bedrock of your app or service, then its performance will be a big part in determining the responsiveness and fluidity of the end-user experience. As such, it is only by monitoring database performance from moment to moment and tracking usage trends over time that you can optimize it successfully.
Database testing is one of the areas that might have the smaller number of open source tools. The programming languages have many xUnit tools and mocking frameworks, but this is not the case for databases. This article provides a list of open source tools that can be used to perform unit, load and security testing on several relational (MySQL, Oracle, SQLServer, etc.) and NoSQL databases.
Big Data is a big topic in software development today. When it comes to practice, software testers may not yet fully understand what is exactly Big Data. A tester knows that you need a plan for testing it. Since most Big Data lacks a traditional structure, how does Big Data quality look like? And what the are most appropriate software testing tools? This article tries to answer these questions.
Creating an effective data migration testing strategy is critical to reducing risk and delivering a successful migration. This article offers thoughts and recommendations on how to create a more consistent data migration testing methodology using either a black box or a white box approach.
The SQL Server unit tests feature have been added in the December 2012 update of SQL Server Data Tools (SSDT). This article presents a detailed information on how to create an run unit tests in SQL Server.
In this blog post, Nicolas Frankel explains how to perform unit testing on a database using DBUnit, Spring and TestNG. DbUnit is a JUnit extension for database-driven projects that, among other things, puts your database into a known state between test runs. This is an excellent tool to avoid the issues that can occur when one test case corrupts the database and causes subsequent tests to fail. DbUnit has also the ability to export and import your database data to and from XML datasets.
