It has never occurred to me before but today I suddenly realized that:
- If a data is able to be kept for a long period of time, how do we test it using test automation?
Say, a given data is to be kept for 100 days. We need to test it
We are expected have 100 days in scenario, no one is pushing us to deliver test result within 100 days.
- We cannot simply read this data on day 1 and again on day 100, as there is no guarantee that this data has not been changed between day 1 and day 100.
- Another extreme will be we read this data frequently enough for 100 days in a row. But it does not sound very efficient.
