We present the framework [q]bfGen which allows the declarative specification of random models for generating SAT and QSAT formulas not necessarily in (prenex) conjunctive normal form. To this end, [q]bfGen realizes a generic formula generator which creates formula instances by interpreting the random model specification expressed in XML. Consequently, the implementation of specific random formula generators becomes obsolete, because our framework subsumes their functionality.
