Database Testing MySQL and PostgreSQL practical tests
Test your skills as Database Administrator and developer
A database is a collection of information that is organized so that it can be easily accessed, managed and updated. Computer databases typically contain aggregations of data records or files, containing information about sales transactions or interactions with specific customers
Data base is nothing but a stack of details, placed in an organized manner. It is like School Attendance Book, we can get the student and details about the student like that database stores different data with different data types.
We can filter these data using a Language called SQL, SQL (Structured Query language) helps retrieve, insert, update, and delete the data from the database. We can store large data in the database and retrieves the required data in seconds.
Why do we need database automation?
Test Data – We can store the data in the database instead of excel or properties, JSON/xml files, retrieval would be faster in case of the database if we are trying to get a large set of data.
Front and Back end connectivity – Sometimes we have to verify the details we submitted/deleted/updated in the front end is reaching the back end for future usage purpose. There are scenarios where details may fail during the parsing, in such cases details will not reach the database
Faster Testing – If we are testing simple database tasks manually it may take lot of time and effort, so to avoid that we can go for automation testing of database
