Database-driven applications rely on an external database for their operation. Testing of these types of applications to ensure that there are no faults in the database interactions is difficult, but critical. There are some software testing adequacy criteria that have been developed to specifically address the verification of database driven applications. However, there are few if any comparisons of these adequacy criteria. This paper compares two types of database software testing criteria: database interaction associations, specifically at the relation and record level of granularity, and command form coverage. The comparison is focused on the upper bound of the cost to fully satisfy each criteria, and is carried out using three open source database-driven applications from different application domains as subjects. The results of the investigation show that command form coverage is the more costly criteria to fully satisfy through testing for the subject applications.
