Subject Re: Perform automatic drop and create db schema
Date Tue, 02 Jan 2007 20:52:55 GMT

I completely agree. We usually just build all the tables once and  
then just try to make sure all the objects are deleted at the end of  
the test, but you are correct that this is sometimes more cumbersome  
than it could be. An easy drop-then-create option would simplify  
this, although some databases can be notoriously slow with schema  
interrogation and manipulation that doing it for each test might wind  
up being prohibitively slow.
