1. Data validation

2. Compliance of data collected and data displayed in the database

3. Truncation inconsistency in Front-end and Back-end

4. Database validation for maximum characters -- If it is not done then it is possible to by-pass it from front-end

thanks santhosh.. are there any examples or documents which can explain more about it ?

Hi subramanian


First thing you need to understand the techinues of the testing .

1Boundary value testing

2Equvalence Partion

3Error guessing

4Othrogonly array

As per 1)Boundary value testing  check for Valid ,invalid , Boundaryvalue , null , Empty  and Alphabetic

For e.g if in certian field it will accept from 0-10

check with 0 - valid , -1 invalid , 11 (above the boundary),null , Empty  & Alphbet & Special charcter

2)Equvalence Partion  accept from 0-10

check with 0

check with 10

check with 5

3)Error guessing  - its tester expeience or adhoc testing

Hi subramanian

DB testing in Shop Cart

1 Boundary value testing  - check when you add some product of price say x then Amonunt required to PAy=x

2 If you remove some product from shopping card(y) then From total - y

3 Check if divide by zero is handled correctlt

4 check the limit of data in GUI and databse for e.g in GUI its 1000 but in database its only 100

5 Check round off how may decimal


Go through the   testing techniques  and create more Testing scenarios
