Data is a core part of any IBM i application and data validation or looking at what happens to that data is a core part of testing. You may well be familiar with SQL statements that help you look at the end result of a test. What you really need to know is what stages a changed piece of data went through, where an error was introduced and by which process.
TestBench reports all the Inserts, Updates and Deletes that occur in a test data environment when a test is performed. Details of the operations are captured and in the case of an update, the before and after status of the data is shown. This provides an understanding of the data part of an application function and aids in the verification of the data changes.
Database effects from two runs of the same test scenario are compared. Differences in the tables affected, the number of operations on a table and differences in individual data elements are reported. When used with TestBench Data Protection, this feature provides the ability to understand the differences between two versions of the same process.
