I've had a project some yrs ago where we had to parse some kind of query 
language and translate it into Oracle SQL including Oracle Intermedia
statements. At that time I've implemented something unittest-like to check
the correctness of the generated SQL both for small queries and 
combinations of queries. However I did not check the queries in real. The 
correctness of the parser and the SQL generator was sufficient at that 
time. Btw. Oracle raised more problems with generated SQL than we would 
have had time to care about the SQL correctness :-)
