We (the DTP team) have been looking at other projects to see what we could
adopt for use generally within Eclipse and specifically to work with the
DTP tooling we already have developed. Database testing is definitely one
area where we think it would strengthen our cause. We think that DbUnit
would be a great way to provide that capability within the Eclipse and
For those of you unfamiliar with DbUnit, you can check
out http://www.dbunit.org for more details. But it basically provide a
JUnit extension to handle unit testing of database stored procedures.
What we are hoping to do is integrate DbUnit in a similar fashion to how
JUnit was integrated with Eclipse, providing wizards for test case and
test suite creation, runtime configuration, and some utilities to create
I'm interested to hear from the DTP community and developers to see if
a) there are any Eclipse users among you who use DbUnit and would like
to help with this integration (testing or coding), and b) if you have any
feedback on features you would like to see integrated into Eclipse and
DTP from DbUnit.
Thank you for your time and I hope to hear from you!
