Database Locking: What Testers Should Know, Why Testers Should Care

Justin Callison, Peak Performance Technologies

Database locking is a complicated technical issue for some testers. Although we often think that this issue belongs in the realm of the developer and the DBA-"It's not my problem"-database locking is the enemy of functional and performance testers. As Justin Callison can personally attest, locking defects have led to many disasters in production systems. However, there is hope! Justin sheds light on the problem of database locking, how it varies among different platforms, and the application issues that can arise. Armed with a new understanding of database locking, you can develop effective testing strategies. Join in and learn about these strategies: designing explicit locking tests, ensuring appropriate test data, implementing sufficient monitoring, and combining manual with automated testing to avoid disaster.
