Harnessing Database Testing

For most modern software applications, the database forms the core of the architecture, and the proper functioning of the database is essential for the software to perform as expected.  Our test engineers have experience testing for and identifying the various issues that can cause software solutions to not function properly.

Typical Database Tests

Design and Structure Validation

This process involves reviewing the schema of the database ensuring the tables, columns, keys, indexes and relationships are optimal. We will also test stored procedures, triggers and jobs to ensure proper functioning.

Data Integrity Testing

When applications access a database to perform CRUD operations, mistakes in application programming can lead to inconsistent and partially updated databases causing data integrity issues. This process will identify such inconsistencies and address them.

Database Performance

This is one of the most common problems faced in databases. With proper testing, we can identify the source of problems.
