I was visiting a customer site last week, and was asked about tools for continuous integration testing of AF databases. I had never really thought about this before, and so didn't have a good answer to give at the time. I understand the principles of CI testing for code, and am familiar with one or two automated frameworks that support this in the .Net world. I'm now looking at how this might be applicable (if at all) for PI AF, and what tooling could be used here.
I'm curious to hear what experiences other members of the Community might have with this methodology in respect to AF. My questions are as follows:
- Do you use, or have you ever used Continuous Integration testing for your PI AF data models?
- What kind of automated tools/frameworks/scripts have you used for CI testing of your AF models?
- Did you find any value in this kind of testing for your AF data models?
Even if you answer 'No' to the first question, I'm still keen to hear your thoughts on this topic in general.
Looking forward to hearing your thoughts and experiences on this.
