      Might be nice for acceptance tetisng, but I don’t see why you would want to talk to a real db during unit tetisng. It’s just too slow, and if you need anything resembling a biggish dataset for a *unit* test, your unit tests aren’t fine-grained enough. Mocking the database is really where you want to go. Redirect the connection logic to give a mock connection object back that basically does string compares to pick which of a handful of precooked result sets (in-memory arrays) to return. It’ll cost you an hour or so to rig up some baseclasses, and keeping everything in memory (and not having to truncate tables) makes sure that your unit tests keep flying. Also, having your datasets in the code will force you to think about your unit tests once they get large usually that’s a refactoring smell I used database-based unit tetisng once, when I just started with XP 10 years ago, and I’ll never go back there.
