Tool: Data generator

Data generator tools are really popular among software testers as they need to frequently create dummy data to test some or the other applications. Generating data manually is a cumbersome task and reduces efficiency. I found a tool called generatedata.

This tool allows you to generate data for columns in a table like name, email, address etc. It also allows you to generate customized data. You can export the generated data to either of the following:
  • XML
  • HTML
  • Excel
  • CSV
  • SQL
This tool is developed by makers of form tools.

Some of the features of the tools are:
  • Numerous data types available
  • Java Script enabled
  • Export data to various file formats
  • Saves data
  • Country specific data
