code generation : Java Glossary


code generation
Automatically generating bubblegum computer code from tables, XML (extensible Markup Language), etc. Not all repetition can be encapsulated in methods. Code generation lets you generate any form of repetitive coding. Code generation is similar to macros, but implies more processing of the specification before generating code. Macros are a one-to-one translation usually embedded in ordinary source code.

Code generators can crank out simple applications like hotcakes, however, in the real world, applications are never completely straight forward. How do you handle the logic beyond what the stomper can do?
