I am glad to share one database unit testing tool. It is named as AnyDbTest (www.anydbtest.com).

I know some guys are using DbUnit or other test framework to perform DB unit testing. I also tried to use them in my projects, but at last I had to give up these tools because they are not suitable for DBA/DB Developer.

AnyDbTest is declarative style testing tool. We will not need to program at all. What we do is to express what we want to test, rather than how to test. We only need to configure an Xml test file to tell AnyDbTest what we want to test. .

AnyDbTest also offers a visual dashboard. Success or failure of test is automatically computed and presented to us via an easy-to-understand red/green light display.

Features specific to AnyDbTest:
*Writing test case with Xml, rather than Java/C++/C#/VB test case code.
*Many kinds of assertion supported, such as StrictEqual, SetEqual, IsSupersetOf, Overlaps, and RecordCountEqual etc.
*Allows using Excel spreadsheet/Xml as the source of the data for the tests.
*Supports Sandbox test model, if test will be done in sandbox, all database operations will be rolled back meaning any changes will be undone.
*Unique cross-different-type-database testing, which means target and reference result set can come from two databases, even one is SQL Server, another is Oracle.

The best way to see how AnyDbTest works is to read the Quickstart.
