Test-Driven MySQL Development

Systems integrators must overcome the limitations of the systems they are integrating, but sometimes a system lacks certain functions or commands that are needed for the integration.

I discuss software testing and explain some common practices for testing large systems, using specific examples to illustrate the accepted practices of testing the MySQL system.
