Generating Test Data For Your Applications

Sometimes on the internet you find websites that are extremely useful. The other day I stumbled upon one such site called GenerateData.com

This website does exactly what the URL suggests, it generates test data for you. This is great if you're in I.T. because invariably for a project, you need test data to demonstrate features to your users.

Generating data is a breeze. Give the data a name, choose the data you want and click Generate.

It generates test data which is great for demo's. Here's a small sample:

Will you give this article a +1 ? Thanks in advance

Check out "DataWang" - a .net library wrapper around Google Sets API - http://code.google.com/p/datawang/

You can hook this library into your .net code and it can even generate lists of your entities with their properties augomagically set to generated values based on an attributes you set.
