Hello,

In my Project we are dealing with shopping data which is in large number, so i am doing Data driven testing using Data provider(Using TestNG).

But what i wanted to know is what are all the testing strategy or methodology or mechanism i should keep in mind or follow while dealing large amount of data.

Our data is above 20,000[I mean shopping data will have minimum 20k products in all categories].

Please share your thoughts on the best practices you guys followed or following.

Thanks, Gopi

There's two parts to testing. Testing for quality - which doesn't require the full data set. You can test with 10 products for that. For performance and stress testing, you will want to test with the whole data set.

What specifically are you wondering about with respect to large data?
