Glossary

ACID
Set of properties that guarantee database transactions are processed reliably. Stands for Atomicity, Consistency, Isolation, Durability.
Atomicity
Atomicity means that database operations are applied following a “all or nothing” rule. A transaction is either fully applied or not at all.
Consistency
Consistency means that each transaction that modifies the database takes it from one consistent state to another.
Durability
Once a transaction is committed, it will remain so.
Foreign Key
A referential constraint between two tables. Example: A purchase order in the purchase_orders table must have been made by a customer that exists in the customers table.
Isolation
The Isolation requirement means that no transaction can interfere with another.
Jenkins

Jenkins is a continuous integration system that we use to help ensure the continued quality of the software we produce. It helps us achieve the aims of:

  • no failed tests in trunk on any platform,
  • aid developers in ensuring merge requests build and test on all platforms,
  • no known performance regressions (without a damn good explanation).
