|Do you know where your variables are?|
Actually that and more...
For example:1) verify all necessary dbms client and server files are in a directory, else fail
2) verify versions of client and server binaries & libraries
3) run a series of queries that pass/fail where desired
4) verify 3rd party binaries work correctly with the dbms server
5) verify os patch and kernel options
This one example would be used to certify a particular dbms version with the local build of the dbms and the local network
I'm doing about 1/2 this by hand now and since I'm lazy, I don't want to keep doing it. This is just an example of a whole series of other applications I wish to put Test::* towards.
