A Laboratory Exercise in Testing Database Applications
Source: Universidad de Oviedo
For years one has been involved in teaching several Software Engineering courses, including a module of software testing. However, due to the time assignments, software testing includes only the main concepts along with black-box and white-box techniques. Exercises carried out by the students include the design of tests form a short specification or a piece of source code. This prevents the students from getting a bigger picture of testing, as they do not experience the issues of testing in the context of an application and working in teams. On the other hand, most of the applications that the students will work with after graduating have a significant database component, and so, they must deal with the particularities of testing in this context.
