Testing, Perl and databases

[ #17614 ]

Found this talk about Perl Testing by Michael Graham.

Useful Test::* modules at the end.

I found the slides when searching for dies_ok, which I was sure I had seen but couldn't find in the man pages for Test::More. And Test::Exception installed without a hitch.

I'm currently writing a test framework for an application server of ours. I'll be using Test::More as the actual framework and perform XML calls to the app server.

The only annoying thing with this is that the app server is only a business logic layer on top of a database, and after/before each run of a test suite, I need to get the database into a consistent state.

The current plan is to keep track of certain tables that actually change and delete from them, then insert default data again.
