The TalendDataGenerator routine contains several functions which allow you to generate sets of test data. These functions are based on fictitious lists of first names, second names, addresses, towns and States provided by Talend. They are generally used when developing Jobs, using a tRowGenerator component, for example, to avoid using production or company data.

You can access these functions by double-clicking the TalendDataGenerator node under the system routines folder in the Repository tree view.
