Release Notes: All known bugs were fixed, and convenience was improved with the new <reference> descriptor, configurable CSV separators, improved distribution support, and a new "finance" domain with generators and validators for bank account numbers with IBANs. The descriptor syntax and semantics have been clarified and unified (see http://databene.org/databene-benerator/file_format.html). Some more XML Schema features are supported, but there is still work to do.
Release Notes: This is primarily a bugfix release and adds an Excel sheet exporter.
Release Notes: This release fixes all known bugs and improves XML file generation performance by 100%, and DB snapshot creation by 20%. Weaknesses in rendering time related values have been removed. A new Distribution type 'IndividualWeight' allows for individual weighting of imported values. Existing generators have been improved and extended by a DomainGenerator.
Release Notes: This release fixes several major bugs and adds domain support for the United States in generating US addresses and company names. From now on, benerator will be available in the public maven repository (groupId "org.databene", artifactId "databene-benerator"). Distribution download and bug tracking will be provided by sourceforge.
Release Notes: This release can generate XML files directly from XML schema files. A custom generator configuration can be added in XML schema annotations. The region concept has been abstracted to a dataset concept. The core data model has been completely redesigned for supporting a type definition concept. With improved QA, several bugs were found and fixed. New generator classes and name packages have been added for India, Brazil, Canada, Spain, Australia, Austria, Japan, Slovenia, and Israel.
Release Notes: This is a bugfix release. It addresses bugs in the shell files and documentation that prevented proper evaluation and use of benerator 0.4.0.
Release Notes: benerator now incorporates mature and comfortable generation capabilities for relational data, providing convenient database configuration and primary key generation, script support in generators and all import file formats, as well as a staging concept. Especially the script feature is a great improvement in generating randomized data with multi-field constraints. Furthermore, central concepts were extended for generation of hierarchical data, like dependent data in databases or nested data structures like XML.
Release Notes: JDBC performance was optimized for bulk operation and LAN access: Oracle performance on dev hardware now is 15,000 rows/sec (for local access) or 5,000 rows/sec (via LAN). A new tool allows for creating a database snapshot in (DbUnit) XML format. With adding support for CLOB, BLOB, and Oracle timezone types, all common SQL column types are available. New DB key generator classes provide for efficient multi-client-data generation.
Release Notes: This release gives a major performance boost by supporting multithreaded data generation. Two bugs concerning unique EAN codes and non-unique regex-based generation were fixed.
Release Notes: This version delivers new Generators, Sequences, and methods for generating unique data. Several bugs were fixed in Generator life cycle handling. New current-time-generators were added. File encodings are supported for all file I/O. Generator chaining is supported in descriptor files. The Web site now features online support forums, RSS feeds, and an announcement mailing list.
