This section describes new features and enhancements in version 9.5.2.
Automatic Test Generation
You can generate value tests for columns in table pairs that do not have matching names or positions.
When you generate value tests, you can preview the list of columns for which tests will be generated.
You can view and resolve issues before you generate value tests.
Data Validation Option Reports
You can run the Data Validation Option reports on JasperReports 4.7.
The Detailed Test Results report shows more connection details, such as the connection string and database user name for a relational connection.
Data Validation Option Repository Database
You can install the Data Validation Option repository on IBM DB2 10.1.
You can select columns, functions, and parameters in the Expression Editor to build an expression.
You can export single-table tests to a spreadsheet, add tests and modify tests in the spreadsheet, and then import the latest tests into Data Validation Option. Data Validation Option creates a new test for each test definition in the spreadsheet.
You can create a self join on a table when you create SQL view.
When you compare tables, you can import table pair definitions from a spreadsheet to generate table pairs and tests for tables that do not have the same name. You can also preview the list of tables for which table pairs will be generated, and view and resolve issues before you generate table pairs.
You can export table-pair tests to a spreadsheet, add tests and modify tests in the spreadsheet, and then import the latest tests into Data Validation Option. Data Validation Option creates a new test for each test definition in the spreadsheet.
XML Data Sources
You can include XML data sources in table pairs, single-table constraints, join views, and lookup views. You can expose all child elements in an XML group for an XML file. Or, you can create a join view on an XML file to convert the hierarchical XML data to a relational structure. Convert the hierarchical XML data to a relational structure to expose all XML data in a single join view. You can reuse the join view for multiple XML files with the same structure.
