Generate Test Data Instantly
It used to take hours, days, and even weeks to manually generate test data
for database applications, warehouse implementations, and Year 2000 projects.
Now, with PLATINUM TESTBytes, you can automatically create millions of rows
of meaningful test data with simple point-and-click action.
TESTBytes is a powerful, easy-to-use tool that automatically generates test
data, providing an incredible productivity boost to database developers,
QA testers, data warehouse developers, and Internet/intranet application
Just point-and-click your mouse to specify the type of data you need. TESTBytes
automatically produces up to millions of syntactically correct test data,
eliminating days or weeks of time-consuming scripting or coding, thus reducing
Populate Databases Easily
After you create a physical database, populating it for testing can be a
challenge. Data can reside throughout the enterprise, so obtaining the exact
type and quantity of data needed to test your database applications is often
drawn-out and difficult. Using TESTBytes, you can create up to millions
of rows of test data — quickly and easily.
Define Test Data in Three Different Ways:
- Create Default Data
TESTBytes uses the system catalog tables to create random data that is
consistent with the datatype and length definitions stored in your database,
producing "valid garbage" that is useful for load testing of
- Generate Data Using Standard Data Profiles
TESTBytes includes standard profiles that automatically produce names,
addresses, cities, states, zip codes, Social Security numbers, Year 2000
test dates, and other common data values. Synchronized profiles allow realistic
sets of data to be produced (e.g., cities within states).
- Meet Requirements with Custom Data Profiles
TESTBytes can also generate custom data to match your specific requirements,
such as a range of values that are randomly produced, or a mix of random
and specific values needed to rigorously test your database application.
Special alphanumeric combinations are no problem. Just build your requirements
through the TESTBytes wizards and TESTBytes does the rest. Or, import a
list of values from a text file to create a custom profile.
TESTBytes connects to your ODBC-compliant database to instantly generate
meaningful test data for your relational database application.
Protect Your Data
Used by federal agencies and Fortune 500 companies with strict security
requirements, TESTBytes provides realistic test data without compromising
the security of corporate data.
Get Better Quality Applications with
Building a reliable database application requires testing throughout the
development process. Eliminating dependency on others to provide test data,
PLATINUM TESTBytes allows developers to be self-reliant and start testing
applications earlier in the development cycle.
Benefit from a Rich Menu of Features
- Generates meaningful test data and populates the target database automatically
without the need to write scripts or a single line of code.
- Creates masked data within a column, making it possible for users to
specify profiles for segments of a field (i.e., values for titles such
as Mr. or Ms.), one or more digits of a zip code, or area codes.
- Supports referential integrity either directly from the database, or
from an ERwin model.
- Generates data to multiple tables with one click.
- Supports key unification and relationship cardinality.
- Enables developers and testers to communicate their test data generation
needs through standard reports.
- Generates optionally to flat files, creating separated and delimited
files that can be used to populate databases with large amounts of data
quickly and easily.
- Allows definition of flat file formats that are independent of your
database table definitions.
- Allows less technical QA and testing team members to be productive
early in the testing cycle.
- Supports 32-bit Windows environments with an ODBC-compliant database.
