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:
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.
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 – 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.
For complex databases, components such as triggers, relational constraints, views, stored procedures, etc. need to be verified and validated as per the business requirements.
The guidelines mentioned below are a starting point to prepare good test cases for database testing.
Once the test cases are documented, you can turn to the following checklist to ensure you covered all aspects.

Best Salesforce Consulting Partner...PERIOD
For the past 14 years, I've worked with numerous Salesforce Consulting partners, from very small, boutique style to very big traditional partners (big 5). Girikon has been by far the best partner I've worked so far. They are very receptive, responsive, highly knowledgeable, technical and very quick to address issues to find agreeable solutions. Their cost and value has no comparison in the industry. I highly recommend them and give them a 5 star.

We evaluated more than five different companies and chose Girikon as our technology partner. What I appreciate most about their services is that they always deliver with quality. Girikon provided our company end-to-end solution for e-commerce.
I wanted to express my appreciation for the outstanding service received from Girikon. We have had our software for about 7 years now.

I highly recommend Girikon as a development and IT partner!
