I need data

I work on an open source java project that accesses a database and builds reports. The application is being used where I work, but because of the industry we're in, I can't share any of our data with other developers. We're in need of data (the more the better) that we can use for developing, testing and demonstration purposes.

I'm not interested in data that comes packaged with database products (please don't suggest we use "Northwinds") or anything with licensing restrictions. If you have any suggestions where we can obtain sample tables with records (again, something big - 1 million + records would be optimal), please contact me at todd_run at yahoo dot com.

Or you could write a program to generate and populate the database with million records having random data.

I agree. Here's the link:
