Free Quality Assurance Test Data

Names | Names & Addresses | Validation | Boundry Test Data

Getting the data necessary to perform adequate database testing can be a project unto itself, which unfortunately, is never factored into the QA budget. Testing the performance of a database designed to handle 250,000 records can only be done by somehow loading the database with 250,000 records and then testing it.

With that in mind, Advertising & Marketing Review has launched the development of a series of small applications designed to quickly create vast amounts of dummy data for testing mySQL and other databases. The first in the series is a name and address generator. It can generate over a billion different names and address combinations, before factoring in 19,000 different possible house numbers. In short, this small app can gererate more records than you will probably ever need.

Posted below are several text files of data generated by our module. One is a three part name, and the other a name plus address, and they are available in files containing 100, 1000, and 10,000 records.

These files are comma delimited, making them easily importable into most databases, even MS Excel. If your database uses a different delimiter, just open the file with a text editor and use the replace all feature to set the delimiter to what you need.

Free Test Data Generator! Our test data generator can generate 100,000 names and addresses in less than a minute. Try it out!

Data for Validation Testing

Field validation is a key part of testing any form. A field may be all capitals or all numbers or have several other restrictions or requirements. To help here are a set of strings of classes of characters that may be restricted or required by a fields validation settings.

A-Z All Capitals
ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ

a-z All lower case
abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz

all numbers
1234567890

A-Z All Letters
ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz

A-Z All Alphanumeric
ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz
1234567890

All special characters
~`!@#$%^&*()_+|-=\{}[]:";'<>?,./


The Works
ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXY abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyxz
1234567890 ~`!@#$%^&*()_+|-=\{}[]:";'<>?,./


Data for Boundry Testing

Most text boxes only accept a limited number of characters, and the same page may have many fields of assorted lengths. To help, here are text paragraphs of lengths of 10, 15, 20, 25, 50, 100, 200, 500 and 1000 character length. Just cut and paste as needed.
