Subject Re: Request For Pointer In Right Direction (newbie)

I see what you are thinking.

Run a Robot script from the stable version, export the data (XML 
file) the analogous script from the unknown version, export its 
data...and compare.  Then restore to the stable state and move on to 
the next script.

Thank you for the pointer!

I still would like to somehow automate the Robot script for the stable 
version to the analogous script from the unknown version.  We have 
quite an investment in the existing test scripts.

Have you looked at DbUnit?

I use an in-memory database (Hsqldb currently) and dbunit for testing
database expectations.
