Core activities covered in our Database Testing
Data Mapping

In software applications, there is a continuous interaction of data between the user interface and the database. Because of this frequent interaction of the UI with the database, there are certain aspects of data that needs to be taken care of such as:

  • Validate the mapping of the UI form fields with the corresponding columns in the database on a regular basis and verify with the business requirements documents.
  • Check for the successful completion of every user action. For eg when a user performs a specific CRUD operation (Create, Retrieve, Update, Delete), the corresponding action gets triggered in the database.
Acid Properties Validation

As a thumb rule, for every transaction, a database must obey four properties – Atomicity, Consistency, Isolation, and Durability, which are also included in our services.

  • Atomicity: This can be interpreted as a binary property, which means a transaction will either fail or pass, which means that if any part of the transaction fails, then the entire process will be marked as failed.
  • Consistency: This implies that every transaction will result in a valid state of the database.
  • Isolation: This implies that when multiple transactions get executed concurrently, results and the state of the database should be similar.
  • Durability: The transaction should be such that once it gets executed, any external factors should not be able to change the state of the database.
Data Integrity

For successful CRUD Operations, it is important to ensure that the last updated recent values of any shared data are reflected on all the user interfaces (forms, screens etc). And the values should be the same type.

‘CRUD’ operations are initiated by the database tool and are executed by the end-user on the software application.

C: Create – This operation is triggered when the user ‘Saves’ any new data through a transaction in an application.

R: Retrieve – This operation is triggered when the user views data for any saved transaction.

U: Update – This operation is triggered when the user chooses to modify an existing record.

D: Delete – This operation is triggered when the user chooses to remove a particular record from the system.

For database testing to be effective, all the database test cases need to be designed in a way that they verify and validate the data to ensure its consistency.

Business Rule Compliance

For complex databases, components such as triggers, relational constraints, views, stored procedures, etc. need to be verified and validated as per the business requirements.

Database Testing Guidelines

The guidelines mentioned below are a starting point to prepare good test cases for database testing.

  • Establish clear functional requirements.
  • Establish all the joins used between tables
  • Establish cursors used, triggers used
  • Establish stored procedures used
  • Establish all the Input/Output parameters used.
  • Create test cases with multiple scenarios of input data and cover all functional paths.
Database Testing Checklist.

Once the test cases are documented, you can turn to the following checklist to ensure you covered all aspects.

  • The tests case are incorporating all the database tables to cover every requirement.
  • If your software/database is using any status flags, then ensure that your tests verify each of them.
  • Ensure that your test cases the triggers/stored procedures with multiple scenarios of input/output.
  • Test cases should validate columns with default values.

Frequently Asked Questions about Database Testing

What is required for database testing services?

A good test engineer will have thorough knowledge of the database components to execute good database testing services These include including functions, stored procedures, indexes, views, keys, and excellent hands-on SQL skills.

Why are database testing services important?

Database testing services ensure the verification in all input data and the consistency and integrity of the data stored in the tables. It trims data loss, saves aborted transaction data, and prevents unauthorised access to information.

Is it possible to automate database testing services?

In one word, yes. Database testing can be automated to ensure performance and functionality of the database. It can prevent crashes, broken insertions or deletions, and failovers. Database test automation strategy plays a key role in establishing database automation test cases.
