Scriptable Database Comparison Tool
- How to compare the contents of exotic mainframe databases such as IDMS and Adabas with the converted relational database on the target platform?
- Data volumes, typically in the Terabyte range, might prohibit “naive” bulk-comparisons.
DataMatch is designed with these challenges in mind. The result is a unique and flexible tool that makes batch testing a breeze in any situation.
DataMatch consists of two main parts:
- A graphical user interface where database connections are set up, comparisons are configured and results are analyzed.
- A scriptable engine that can execute previously configured comparison runs, and that can be easily integrated in other testing frameworks, logging and monitoring tools etc. This way, even long-running batch jobs can be tested without manual intervention.
The DataMatch GUI offers powerful tools to analyze and track down any differences found. It can zoom in on specific differences, or detect patterns in the differences using various correlation techniques.
