Does anybody know of a big formatted assortment of fake user data (names, current email address, locations, etc.) you can use for testing a credit card applicatoin?
It may be clearly fake, this is restricted to the expansion server. But I am sure anything could be much better than things i could develop.
You will find some tools built due to this. I have used http://www.generatedata.com/ before to create data for MySql databases. RedGate includes a nice tool to fill your SQL Server database with test data known as SQL Data Generator. The RedGate tool costs about $300, but there's a totally free trial.
This can be a free tool for producing various test data. http://www.generatedata.com
http://www.fakenamegenerator.com/ is a great resource for creating test data with realistic searching customers filled with SSN, current email address, ... There is a bulk download option too.
Read this listing of "Funny Names" a number of them are classic
Check this out SO thread: Creating test data inside a database
Another free test generator tool is my very own http://code.google.com/p/csvtest.
