PL/SQL for Test Automation
Learn the basics of PL/SQL. Run tests in a loop, verify the query results against expected outcomes and log the test runs.
About the course
Most database tests can be described in a simple way – verify that a field meets the specified requirements and if it does, the test passes. All such tests have a unified way to state expected results – either the fields are always equal or they’re not. These tests can be automated.
This course aims towards this automation. We will learn the basics of PL/SQL – a procedural extension of Oracle SQL.
You’ll see how it can be used to run tests in a loop, verify the query results against expected outcomes and log the test runs. All this will allow the tester to run a script in the evening and check the results in the morning, verifying reported incidents.
