NAME

Data::Generator::FromDDL - Dummy data generator from DDL statements

SYNOPSIS

    use Data::Generator::FromDDL;

    my $generator = Data::Generator::FromDDL->new({
        ddl => 'CREATE TABLE users (....);',
        parser => 'mysql',
    });
    $generator->generate(100); # Generated data are written to STDOUT.

DESCRIPTION

Data::Generator::FromDDL is dummy data generator intended to easily prepare dummy records for RDBMS. This module takes care of some constraints and generates records in the right order.

Supported constraints are

    - PRIMARY KEY
    - UNIQUE KEY
    - FOREIGN KEY

Supported data types are

    - BIGINT
    - INT (INTEGER)
    - MEDIUMINT
    - SMALLINT
    - TINYINT
    - FLOAT
    - DOUBLE
    - BOOLEAN (BOOL)
    - TIMESTAMP
    - CHAR
    - VARCHAR
    - TINYTEXT
    - TEXT
    - MEDIUMTEXT
    - ENUM

METHODS

new - Create a new instance.
    Data::Generator::FromDDL->new(%options);

Possible options are:

ddl => $ddl

Description of DDL. This option is required.

parser => $parser // 'MySQL'

Parser for ddl. Choices are 'MySQL', 'SQLite', 'Oracle', or 'PostgreSQL'.

builder_class => $builder_class // 'Data::Generator::FromDDL::Builder::SerialOrder'

Builder class.

include => [@tables] // []

Target tables.

exclude => [@tables] // []

Ignored tables.

generate - Generate dummy records.
    $generator->generate($num, $out_fh, $format, $pretty, $bytes_per_sql);

Arguments are:

$num or \%num

Number of records generated.

Or you can also give number of records for each table.

    $num = {all => 20, # 20 records for all tables
            tables => {
                users => 10 # 10 records for 'users' table
                }
            };

This is useful for table that has one-to-many relationship with other table.

$out_fh (default: *STDOUT)

File handle object to which records are dumped.

$format (default: 'sql')

Output format. Choices are 'sql' or 'json'.

$pretty (default: false)

Boolean value whether to print output prettily.

$bytes_per_sql (default: 1048576(1MB))

The maximum bytes of bulk insert statement.

This argument is releated to the MySQL's 'max_allowed_packet' variable which stands for the maximum size of string. It's recommended to suit this argument for your MySQL settings.

cf. https://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.1/en/server-system-variables.html#sysvar_max_allowed_packet
