Automate mundane test data maintenance tasks – Programmatically modify Rational datapools

For those who don’t know what a datapool is, a datapool is a test dataset, a collection of related data records which supplies realistic data values to the variables in a test script during test script playback. You can use datapools to supply realistic data and to stress an application with a realistic amount of data.

However, maintenance of the contents of datapools can become a full-time task in cases where test data might not be static.

In this developerWorks article, Tim von Niessen describes a programmatic approach to modification of the contents of your datapools, using Java to update your test data from Rational Functional Tester, Rational Performance Tester, and Rational Service Tester for SOA Quality.
