you're quite right in that even the same operation can work quite differently on the same db engine but on different architecture. the db engine vendors do try to make things as portable but they're never 100%.
on a side note in regards to different db engines, it's interesting to see some not so minor SQL standard implementations by the different vendors. some of this is documented in Joe Celko's book "SQL for Smarties"
in terms of further developing your test suite...maybe it could be made more black box like by having a config. As for checking whether a db engine exists on a machine or such, you could run basic sanity check before running tests proper. The sanity check typically written in "eval" style defensive coding to connect to db etc.
or maybe i'm missing the point entirely?
the hardest line to type correctly is: stty erase ^H

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
