In test-first development, developers formulate and implement a detailed design iteratively, one test at a time. Test-driven development (also called test-driven design) combines TFD with refactoring, wherein developers make small changes (refactorings) to improve code design without changing the code's semantics. When developers decide to use TDD to implement a new feature, they must first ask whether the current design is the easiest possible design to enable the feature's addition. Implementing test-driven database design involves database refactoring, regression testing, and continuous integration. TDDD is an integrated part of the overall development process, not a standalone activity that data professionals perform in parallel with application TDD. Although from a technical view point, TDDD is relatively straightforward, we must overcome several challenges to its whole sale adoption throughout the IT community
