Description Author  

This class can be used to populate a MySQL database with random data.

It can scan the list of tables and fields of a MySQL database and generate SQL INSERT statements that will fill the tables with records with random data.

The class tries to populate each record field with values that seem appropriate based on the field name.

Then it can either execute the generated SQL statements or save them to a file.

When you need to test database applications it is convenient to test them with different values in the database records.

This class helps testing database applications by filling table records with random data in different record fields which can be used to test the application with different combinations of values.
