Re: Idea for DBIx module: Creating mass test databases based on existing ones

in reply to Idea for DBIx module: Creating mass test databases based on existing ones

  1. It would absolutely be useful to the testing community
  2. I haven't seen anything like this on CPAN, but I also have never done an extensive search for such a thing
  3. DBI::ODBC version plz

I could give my 2 cents on the state of the databases often used in test efforts, but that may be out of scope. This would be a useful tool, although it looks (at first glance) like it would be a lot of work to get it functional across a decent swath of DBIx flavors

    Thank you for the incentive and your comments. I know there is still a long way to go to make things work, especially across different DBMSs. But I find it worth the effort, it would be an improvement over having to create anonymized client databases or writing ad-hoc SQL to pump up tables.
