I really do not understand what type of question you are trying to ask. You have asked some thing but then you are answering by your self re-read your statement aebntester
What is Back end testing or how to do BET.
[ QUOTE ]
Back end testing in UNIX will be
1.testing of APIs
2.running batch processes and checking the results in data bases
3.running batch processes and checking the generated files.

seems like you are reading and writing from a book.
now you need to know what APIs is, data base is and what file is generated that need to be checked and you need to check particular information with in the file. we cannot help what to check until we do not know what you are testing or checking. So please make your question clear. thank you
Batch processes are usually submitted with the following command line:
$ nohup bck_grnd_prg &
I open up a separate green screen shell window and run a shell script like this to check the output files:
ls -l # obtain list of files in directory
wc -l # obtain number of lines of files in directory
grep Complete * # search for record in file indicating
# the processing is complete
sleep 20 # sleep arbitrary length of time
