CRUD Testing: Learn the basic.
In Software testing many time we come across the term “CRUD testing”, Many freshers and newly appointed QA get confused that What is this CRUD testing and why it is important? So today in this blog we will learn about this testing.
What is CRUD?
CRUD stands for Create Read Update Delete. This is another name for Database testing. following are the C.R.U.D operations from an end-user perspective.
- Create – User creating a new record on the website.
- Read – User ‘Searching’ or ‘Viewing’ any details on the website.
- Update – When a user wants to ‘Edit’ or ‘Update’ his/her existing data.
- Delete – When a user wants to ‘Remove’ any existing data associated with his/her records.
What is Database?
A collection of information which is organised so that it can be easily accessed, managed and updated is called Database. In details, you can learn about the database here.
What is CRUD or Database testing ?
Validation of stored data in the database and verifying the correct flow of data from database to frontend is called CRUD or DATABASE testing. CRUD testing usually consists of a layered process which is as the following:
- User Interface (UI) layer
- the business layer
- the data access layer
- the database
Why CRUD testing is required?
The database is considered as the heart of any website or mobile application after all the data which a user is accessing is stored in database only, and nowadays databases are widespread and they are getting more complex with new upcoming technologies and that’s why testing the database is important.
Types of CRUD testing
There are basically 3 types of testing which are as the following
- Structural database Testing:
The process of verifying those components of database which are not visible to the end-user is called structural database testing. Validation of database server is also considered in this testing
- Functional database Testing:
The process which ensures that required transactions and operation triggered by end-user are completed as per the business requirements without any error is called functional database testing. End-to-End data flow from the database to frontend and vice versa is an example of this testing.
- Non-functional database Testing:
The process of testing the load, stress and along with optimizing the performance of the database is called non-functional database testing.
Please tell us about your database testing knowledge before-and-after reading. I bet you’ll have something to say !!!
Happy Learning 🙂
