Grid-Tools has released version 1.9 of its database test tool, GT Datamaker.
The new version gives software testers the ability for standard test cases to be "inherited", allowing them to be used as the basis for more specific test cases, saving considerable time during testing, the company said.
The tool supports DB2 and MySQL, adding to the existing support for Oracle, SQL Server and Sybase.
GT Datamaker is designed to create data automatically to aid testing of complex database applications.
It is able to create data or create anonymous production data, cleansing it of personal and confidential information to ensure compliance with legislation such as the Data Protection Act and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act.
Existing users of Grid-Tools software include government and financial institutions where there are strict rules on data privacy.
