I am writing some functional testing applications in watir and I am most
likely going to have this application store the data in a MySQL or
Oracle database. Since the tests are going to be in a constant state of
change I figure it might be best to store the scripts in the DB as well,
since this would allow me to re-deploy any code changes by updating the
clobs in the DB.
The are several ways to go about this, but was curious as to writing
stubs that just fetch the source directly from the DB using DBI to
evaluate it. In a general sense is this asking for too much trouble in
debugging or using require etc ? I assume require can be overloaded to
search the DB as well as the filesystem.
