Our Oracle database has about 50 triggers, some of which prevent the insertion of datasets using DBUnit. Currently our tests with APE are annotated with @ApplyScriptBefore("disable_all_triggers.sql") and @ApplyScriptAfter("enable_all_triggers.sql"). On our database This adds an overhead of about 10 seconds for each test. I could of course hand-craft various SQL-scripts that modify only the triggers relevant for each test, but that seems rather bothersome.
I'd like to see a feature where you can configure table names with their related triggers, something like
Now when APE loads a dataset containing entries for people_t and roles_t, it knows it has to modify trigger_a and trigger_b. So it can disable these triggers, run the database operation, and enable them again afterwards.
I might try to help implement such a feature if I find the time.
