Dadela

Introduction

Dadela is a data generation language (DGL); it creates, inserts and exports records of database tables (entities).

The language was originally designed for Forceea data factory framework.

Scope

The scope of this project is to improve the way we generate business data.

In this context:

  • The language specifications are open for discussion among the community members,
  • We support every contribution on the further development and application of the language.

Notations

The definitions use the following notation:

  • the symbol := means is defined as, e.g. <Component> := ... means "Component is defines as ..".
  • the symbol | means OR, e.g. <Component> := { one | two } means "Component is defines as one or two".
  • the symbols { and } enclose multiple alternative options, e.g. { alpha | beta | delta }.
  • the symbols [ and ] enclose optional components, e.g. [ parameter(<List>) ].
You can’t perform that action at this time.
