Databases inspection while debugging tests

Posted on: 2021-05-04 13:21:39

While debugging, I use a local MySQL database. Sometimes, I want to inspect the contents of the DB while the tests are running to I can check out the state of things.

This is how I do it.

Add a breakpoint to your code, and then open up your query environment of choice:

set tx_isolation="READ-UNCOMMITTED";

Now run whatever queries you want to inspect the DB.

The tx_isolation change will only impact the current session.
