Abstract

A common problem in Database development is the lack of test data for doing scalability tests, or performance tests or sometimes any tests at all. The approach most programmers take is to write custom scripts that replicate known product data munging it in some random way to generate additional data. This paper describes a compact macro language that can simplify the task of generating test data.
