Testing database records Empty Testing database records

on Mon Aug 31, 2009 9:52 pm
In my web application, many times I come across database testing. First could you suggest any tools for this requirement. I have been testing my app with selenium RC PHP.

At all times, I couldn't write expected result. Suppose if a complete db record is shown on my webpage with different columns, I can't write expected result, as site grows up, many new records will come, So all the times we don't know expected result (it is such a case showing the db records in descending order with all the column values & it also might have an associated db field of other table.)

This problem is slurping me from too many days. Please help.

For this you have to write your own function in PHP which verify your webtable


verifyWebtable(array ExpectedData , array ActualDataFromWebPage , boolean status)
{ }
You have to think what logic you write, so it will work according for your requirement. If you successfully create this fuction, then you can use anywhere in projec.

Selenium is not directly supporting any database testing except the following command:

storeTable ( tableCellAddress, variableName )
Gets the text from a cell of a table. The cellAddress syntax tableLocator.row.column, where row and column start at 0.


* tableCellAddress - a cell address, e.g. "foo.1.4"
* variableName - the name of a variable in which the result is to be stored.

the text from the specified cell

If you want to do it with help of other tool, you can try SQLUnit or Builder AU.

Best of luck.
