Actually, ETL is using the standard as UL. Hence, ETL testing is exactly the same as UL. just
using ETL instead of UL. of course, price will be lower than UL

ETL basically stands for Extract Transform Load - which simply implies the process where you
extract data from Source Tables, transform them in to the desired format based on certain rules
and finally load them onto Target tables. There are numerous tools that help you with ETL process
- Informatica, Control-M being a few notable ones.

So ETL Testing implies - Testing this entire process using a tool or at table level with the help of
test cases and Rules Mapping document.
In ETL Testing, the following are validated 1) Data File loads from Source system on to Source Tables.
2) The ETL Job that is designed to extract data from Source tables and then move them to
staging tables. (Transform process)
3) Data validation within the Staging tables to check all Mapping Rules / Transformation Rules are
followed.
4) Data Validation within Target tables to ensure data is present in required format and there is no
data loss from Source to Target tables.

Both ETL and Database Testing are same..Whatever we achieve with Data Warehouse can be
achieved by Database also...We all know that data warehouse is nothing but the set of databases
which follows some characterstics like : subject oriented,Non Volatile,Integrated and Time
Varient.

The only difference is that


1) The data in database is Normalized in Nature and the datra in DWH is Denormalized in Nature.
2) Database Testing uses ER Model whereas DWH uses Dimensional Modeling technique.
3) Database Testing is done on OLTP system and DWH testing is done on OLAP systems.
4) Database uses only .sql files whereas ETL/DWH can use any type of file to import data.
Except that their is no other difference between them.

But people say ETL testing is more valued than Functional testing..Being a ETL tester myself,I
dont find any difference in terms of salary for the 2 types of testing.
In what perspective,we then say ETL testing is more valuable?
