How It Works

DataRoller is a Java application that will insert piles of good looking data into your favorite databases so you can move in and be happy.

HINT: The first section of the User Guide is a one-page intro showing:

  1. a real DataRoller script file,
  2. a database table,
  3. the command-line to run it, and
  4. the "SELECT *" it produces.

  • Sequences and patterns
  • Read data from other database tables
  • Read values from external text, XML and Excel
  • Lorem Ipsum text for long character columns
