Do you plan to make the code generation for the client-side extendable or modifiable? I am specifically interested in extending the Flex code generation. The current Flash Builder 4 implementation offers:
1. Automatic support for foreign keys – displayed as Combo Boxes
2. Forms Templates – defines one or more ‘Styles’ to be used when auto-generating forms for a domain model object.
I would like to be able to extend your Flex code generator to support some of these same features.
Extending the templates used in the MyEclipse for Spring generation can actually be done today in version 8.6. It does require building an Eclipse plugin, and we are not sure whether people are ready to take on that kind of challenge. So, we are working on a more optimal solution and gathering feedback on the types of extensions people would like to build – one that we’ve heard a lot about is the web layer. Let me know if you have other ideas.
I can offer a document we’ve created that describes the steps involved in creating an Eclipse plug-in project and extending the generation templates. If you are interested in that document, please PM or email me at dmeurer [at] skywaysoftware [dot] com
