Most testing is about trying to prove things work the way they should, and that needs good test data. For that, you, in turn, need good test data management.
This guide explores the key principles and techniques as they relate to the creation, maintenance, validation, use, and re-use of test data environments on the IBM i.
Vermont Information Processing (VIP) has been providing business solutions to beverage wholesalers since 1972. Their key requirement was to reduce the level of risk by increasing the scope and quality of test coverage. They needed a solution that would run on the IBM i, to test screens, database, and spool files.
VIP has turned around its quality control and reassured VIP’s customers. TestBench has allowed repeatability and also comparability of tests. Now with the database effects, you can tell exactly what happened, at what time in the test. It’s given VIP many more complete tests. Programmers are receiving a lot more detail and as a result, are solving issues faster.
