Scenario 1: Create a schema for  Ecommerce database. Follow Database development life cycle

Scenario 2: Write 4 scenarios that you could test database migration. Write queries to.

Scenario 3: Write 6 scenarios that you would test during database development phase

Scenario 4: Write a query that runs 1) nested query 2) uses view 3) apply left outer join

Scenario 5: Write 4 scenarios that you would test frontend to backend database integration test
