Bichromate Supports Proxy DB Server Access

sTestMySQLConnector is a new Bichromate factory that enables tests to use a proxy server to connect to a mySQL DB. Most organizations only allow DB access thru a proxy server. Bichromate solves this problem by wrapping sTestMySQLConnector around “jcraft”¬†


You simply fill out the properties file to gain access.


# SSH when DB is behind a firewall
# Here you connect to a remote machine and complete port forwarding
# You must store the id_rsa in the security directory. It must be named id_rsa



Once the connection is made, the test simply calls:


* This method demonstrates executeQuery(). Use this method to execute SQL querries on the DB
* @author davidwramer
* @version 1.0
public ResultSet executeQuery(String query) throws SQLException{
