AntaniXml is a .NET library for generating random xml based on a schema. This is useful mainly for testing - especially to produce stress test data - but also for unit and property based testing. Of course generating samples may also help in figuring out concretely what kind of xml is defined by a certain schema.
The API is straightforward, given a schema file you have to choose an element
definition to use as a template. Then you call the
Generate method to get the
desired number of samples:
var samples = Schema.CreateFromUri("po.xsd") .Generator(new XmlQualifiedName("purchaseOrder")) .Generate(10);
You can also customize the generators. Comprehensive documentation is available on the project site.
