IBM i applications are rich in database activity and much of that processing is performed by APIs or batch processes that do not have any form of user interface. Given the damage that a poorly written program can inflict on this key corporate asset, validating that every database activity is correct is difficult and IBM provide few tools to help.
By using TestBench’s Data Validation module, you can track every insert, update and delete operation. You will understand what errors have been introduced and by what process. There are even rules so data changes get flagged automatically.
