Creating Custom Data Generators

You can use Visual Studio Team System Database Edition to generate meaningful data for testing. By using the built-in data generators, you can generate random data, generate data from existing data sources, and control many aspects of data generation. If the functionality of the built-in generators is insufficient, you can create custom data generators. To create custom data generators, you use the classes in the Microsoft.VisualStudio.TeamSystem.Data.DataGenerator namespace.
