Hi

Can you add some more details on your question?

what do you mean by test data? user names? passwords?

Let me know if I understood you correctly and I'll continue.

Thanks,

Lior

Hi,

As long as your application does not force you to use unique data per user it is possible technically. The draw back will be that you will not simulate real world conditions in the best way and as a result the application and database cache mechanisms will not be fully examined. It will be easier for the system components to cache the data and fetch data from it not forcing the ciculate the information stored in the cache. There can be more implications and it is really depended on the application implementation.
