Automated database testing with RDS

Starting with version 4.6, Orbeon Forms will support SQL Server, in addition to Oracle, MySQL, and DB2. That's a lot of databases to test for. To make testing easier, we've started using Amazon RDS.

RDS does for databases what Sauce did for browsers: it allows us to run on every commit all our tests against different databases, and this without us having to worry about maintaining servers running all the different databases we want to support.

Since RDS doesn't (yet?) support DB2, at this point we're running automated tests on every commit against Oracle, MySQL, and SQL Server, but not DB2. For DB2, we're planning to do this by leveraging an EC2 instance.
