A comprehensive approach to data warehouse testing
Testing is an essential part of the design life-cycle of any software product. Nevertheless, while most phases of data warehouse design have received considerable attention in the literature, not much has been said about data warehouse testing. In this paper we introduce a number of data martspecific testing activities, we classify them in terms of what is tested and how it is tested, and we discuss how they can be framed within a reference design methodology. Categories and Subject Descriptors H.4.2 [Information Systems Applications]: Types of Systems—Decision support; D.2.5 [Software Engineering]: Testing and Debugging General Terms Verification, Design Keywords data warehouse, testing
