Unit Testing Database Code

Home / Tools / Unit Testing Database Code

Steve Jones, in his daily email from SQL Server Central, supplied a link to a terrific article in the MSDN magazine. Apply Test-Driven Development to your Database Projects. It was written by Jamie Laflen who is a Tech Lead on the DBPro team.  I’ve written a couple of articles on database unit testing, but none of them touch this. It’s the new gold standard for introducing the topic to beginners (and lending a helping hand to experienced users). It’s worth a read, or even two. I’m going to go back and review it a couple of times with Visual Studio open and a project running.

No word yet on new virtuals. I’m going to work on another set of tests that I have to run. More on that later.

OK, fine, but what do you think?
