Declares a random variable of type RndUniN. With each access, such a variable contains a value that is generated following a uniform distribution. The parameters of the RndUniN function specify the minimum value and the maximum value of the uniform distribution. Within these boundaries all integer values have the same probability (including the boundaries).

dclrand rCube : RndUniN(1..6); rArtNo : RndUniN(1..10000); rPrice : RndUniN(10..2000); dcltrans transaction t1 var i: number; begin for i := 1 to rCube do c1: UpdArticle(); end; end t1; dclsql UpdArticle: UPDATE article SET price = :rPrice WHERE articlenumber = :rArtNo;

rCube is a random variable that generates integer random values between 1 and 6. Each value has the same probability. rCube is used in a for loop of a transaction to express a random factor of repetition. The random variable rArtNo generating integer numbers between 1 and 10000 is used in a SQL command to access an article randomly. The random variable rPrice is used to update the price of the accessed article; the price is set randomly to a value between 10 and 2000.
