SQL Resource Kit - dbgen - Database Generator


I was wondering if anyone uses dbgen from the SQL resource kit or similar.

It generates random data and inserts into database tables. It can use any of
several distribution schemes.

I had a look at it, and it doesn't appear to live up to its billing.

It doesn't handle identity columns correctly, and while adding that to the
supplied code is relatively easy, the supplied code doesn't have the domain
or lookup for foreign key support in the code, while it was in the
executable. That is, the code is out of sync with the executable.

Does anyone have suggestions/code/tool they use?

Kind Regards

David Todd

Hi All, This is a resource file generation tool which converts an xml based resource formats to .net resource file i.e. (.resources) and vice-versa. Today we will see how we will generate ==> .txt files from .resources or .resx files. ==> .resources files from text or .resx files.

In a project I am working on, it sounds like resource files are what I need (to group things like error message strings). If I put a resource file in a project, everything will work fine.

Hi, All. I am creating a setup program. The way it works is that the user creates their setup info, my program generates the C# code for a setup executable, embeds the xml file containing the info for the setup, and compiles the whole thing into one EXE. How do i embed resources, and access them, into that assembly?
