SmartFactory for Force.com

Project Owner: Matthew Botos

Created: May 16 2011

Description

SmartFactory aims to provide test data objects with all required fields and object lookups pre-populated. The idea came from writing unit tests for unfamiliar orgs, where setting up test data might mean digging through a large hierarchy of lookup relationships and required fields. Instead, SmartFactory uses the Describe metadata to populate all fields with data of the right type. It currently handles string and lookup fields. For lookup fields, it creates an appropriate object and then uses that object's ID.

Great product, use this for all my dev projects to get baseline records created for UnitTesting. Saves a lot of time, especially in required fields change on a frequent bases. -BlackTabGroup

Very nice library to create test data, works like a charm. Has a few limitations, but nothing that cannot be worked-around easily.
