benerator is a framework for creating realistic and valid high-volume test data, used for testing (unit/integration/load) and showcase setup. Metadata constraints are imported from systems and/or configuration files. Data can imported from and exported to files and systems, anonymized, or generated from scratch. Domain packages provide reusable generators for creating domain-specific data such as names and addresses, internationalizable in language and region. benerator is strongly customizable with plugins and configuration options.


This version delivers new Generators, Sequences, and methods for generating unique data. Several bugs were fixed in Generator life cycle handling. New current-time-generators were added. File encodings are supported for all file I/O. Generator chaining is supported in descriptor files. The Web site now features online support forums, RSS feeds, and an announcement mailing list.
