I am testing a Windows application which uses Sybase as the backend database. The data from the backend is retrieved through queries and displayed in the GUI. The database is located in the same PC and no network delays are expected.
Now we have some new performance requirements which state certain maximum time for this kind of data retrieval and display.
For eg., it states 'maximum 3 seconds to retrieve the employee data when the 'query' button is clicked'.
Has anyone tried automating this kind of scenarios using any tools available ? What other solutions will be possible other than manually checking the display using the watch ?
