MySQL vs. PostgreSQL: How Do They Compare?
MySQL is an example of a relational database. It is open source, which means everyone may use it for free. MySQL, also known as My Structured Query Language, is one of the oldest database management systems (DBMSs) and uses row-and-column tables to store data. On the other hand, we have PostgreSQL. It is a compelling and open-source DBMS introduced on January 29, 1996. PostgreSQL works on widely used operating systems, such as Linux, Unix, Windows, and Mac OS. In this article on CoderPad’s blog, Gourav Bais discusses the features of both databases and outline their respective advantages and disadvantages.
PostgreSQL LIKE Operator: A Detailed Guide
When using databases, searching for values that match a given pattern is a familiar necessity. You might want to retrieve all students whose last name starts with a given letter or update all products whose ids include a particular string. If you’re a PostgreSQL user, you will use the PostgreSQL
LIKEoperator for that. If you want to learn more about PostgreSQL
LIKE, you can check out this post from Carlos Schults on CoderPad’s blog.
WebdriverIO vs Selenium: 2 Automation Frameworks Compared
WebdriverIO and Selenium are two popular tools for writing software automation scripts. Both provide a lot of the same functionality to automate testing. Still, they have some key differences that impact how useful they are for different testing scenarios. In this post on Testim’s blog from Mercy Kibet, you can learn what makes each framework so effective as well as highlight the strengths and weaknesses of each.
How to Use Selenium for Functional Testing: A Tutorial
Web applications have been a mainstay of the internet since its inception in the mid-1990s. However, they are only now entering mainstream consciousness. This is partly because of better interfaces, but primarily because of the growing use of SaaS solutions. Awareness has also grown thanks to mobile devices that provide instant access to information and services on the go. This increase in access has caused an explosion in website development. Now organizations scramble to make sure their online presence stays up-to-date and meet current technology standards. One of the industry standards is to include comprehensive testing as part of good software development practices. We can make testing web applications easy by using a framework like Selenium for functional testing. This post from Mercy Kibet on Testim’s blog covers how to write your first functional test using Selenium’s built-in webpage object model (WebDriver).
Regression Testing Vs. Functional Testing: How They Differ
In software development, a regression is any change to a system after performing the last test. There are many causes of regressions in software testing, and because of their complexity and impact on the product, you should avoid them where possible. This article from Mercy Kibet on Testim’s blog will examine how regression tests differ from functional tests, what each type of testing includes, how these types of tests differ in approach and outcome, an explanation of how to perform them both correctly and incorrectly, and concluding with recommendations on when or whether your team should use one or the other.
API Functional Testing: The What, Why, and How
No matter how much you plan when building software, errors will likely occur. We all know how bad it is to deal with an application that doesn’t work properly. We use software testing precisely to find errors in an application before its release to the market, as well as after the release in the creation of new features. Therefore, in this article on Testim’s blog, Rhuan Souza focuses on a specific category of testing: API functional testing.
Functional Testing vs Unit Testing: An In-Depth Comparison
Developers test software to make sure it meets the specified requirements and performs fast and effective enough to solve the problem it was designed to solve. There are functional and non-functional tests, and within these two categories, there are several more types of tests, including unit tests, integration tests, and end-to-end tests. In this post on Testim’s blog, Pius Aboyi covers functional testing vs unit testing and compare the two types.
