Database Testing is checking the schema, tables, triggers, etc. of the database under test. This involves creating complex queries to load/stress test the database and check its responsiveness. It Checks data integrity and consistency.
Why DB Testing??
The GUI is in most cases given the most emphasis by the respective test managers as well as the development team members since the Graphical User Interface happens to be the most visible part of the application. However what is also important is to validate the information that can be considered as the heart of the application aka DATABASE.
Let us consider a Banking application whereby a user makes transactions. Now from database Testing viewpoint following things are important:
- The application stores the transaction information in the application database and displays them correctly to the user.
- No information is lost in the process.
- No partially performed or aborted operation information is saved by the application.
- No unauthorized individual is allowed to access the users information.
To ensure all these above objectives, we need to use data validation or data testing.
