A new build of Datagenerator

I hadn't realised it's been such a long time since I updated Datagenerator… I'm going to put that right today by releasing a new build that will eventually turn into version 0.5 and be at the heart of the upcoming Swingbench 2.6.

I've had to update Datagenerator extensively to support some of the new benchmarks and changes that the next version of swingbench requires. Some of the changes I've made are.

Support for a new generator to create arbitrary precision floating point values. It also includes a preview of the data to be generated. This will become the standard moving forwards.


Number generators can use the row count of another table to act as the end value. This makes it simple and quick to create foreign keys.


Reverse Engineering now supports Index and sequences. The reverse engineering process also uses the statistics from tables to seed the generators.


Tables can be scaled at different ratios from others…


Also upcoming in the 0.5 build…

  • Generators based on values from other generators i.e. use the "first_name" created by another generator to act as part of an email address.
  • UID Generator
  • Potentially generators for ZIPCodes, IP Ranges, Points within Polygons.
