What's New in QuerySurge 5.x

Our 5.0 and 5.1 simultaneous releases provide great new features, the top one being the ability to stage your data from multiple sources

QuerySurge 5.0

QuerySurge users may have a need to stage external data in QuerySurge in order to use it during test execution. Examples of where this might be useful include the following use cases:

  • I can't set up heterogeneous connectivity between databases, but I need to join across tables in different databases. Does QuerySurge support this?
  • I need to join between a flat file and a database table - can I do that in QuerySurge?
  • I need to compare incremental rows that have ETL'd in different well-defined time periods. Can I do this in QuerySurge?

In these examples, the data derives:

  • from different databases in your environment
  • from completely different technologies (i.e. flat file-to-database-table-join example)
  • from the same system but at different times

QuerySurge supports these types of tests with the Data Staging feature. This feature allows the user to create Staging Queries that bring the identified data into Staging Tables in QuerySurge, where you can then access it in your QueryPairs, as a regular Source or Target.
