Although test-driven development is now considered common sense in the OO world, it is very rare in database development. This session looks at the reasons behind this and presents solutions and best practices for test-driven database development. Database TDD and testing is analysed from two aspects: unit-testing in the database (stored procedures,views) and integration testing from the object service/web layer down to the database. I also present DbFit, an extension to FIT/FitNesse that makes database TDD easy
This session is aimed at database developers, technical architects and Java/.NET developers working on enterprise applications.
