Automatically Set Up Flat/Nested JSON, Avro, and Parquet Projects

Apache Spark is an open-source distributed general-purpose cluster-computing framework. Spark provides an interface for programming entire clusters with implicit data parallelism and fault tolerance. An Import from Spark Schema option has been added to the New Domain menu within the GenRocket Project Dashboard and can be used to automatically setup a JSON, Avro, or Parquet Project in GenRocket.

Create Your Domain with Attribute, Size, and Type in Scratch Pad

GenRocket offers 10 different ways to create Domains for a Test Data Project including XTS (Extract Table Schema), DDL, CSV, Project Presets and Scratch Pad. A Domain can be created in Scratch Pad by choosing a delimiter and then typing or pasting the Attribute name. Now, you can include additional information about each Attribute (e.g., Size, Type, etc.) when creating a Domain with Scratch Pad.

Integrate with Java Maven Project for using GenRocket APIs

Apache Maven is a cornerstone of Java development and the most popular build management tool for Java. A Project Object Model or POM is the fundamental unit of work in Maven. It’s an XML file containing information about the project and configuration details to build the project. GenRocket can now be integrated with a Java Maven Project with the creation of a pom.xml file you can use with GenRocket APIs from within your Java Maven project.

New CURL Commands for REST API

CURL (Client URL) is a command line utility for transferring data to or from a remote server available on most macOS and Linux distributions. CURL is useful for automating web requests from within a test script to perform a variety of functions and can now be used with the GenRocket REST API for this purpose.
