Ruby Code Generator
Java Dwarf Manager was previously
(re)implemented using a
XML Code Generator written in Python.
There an XML description of the desired classes and mappings to database
tables was used to generate Java beans and SQL queries. In this version
the SQL schema (list of create table statements) is parsed and used to
generate EJB CMP 2.0 Entity Beans and XML deployment descriptors for
EJB Dwarf Manager. The
Ruby programming language, with it's
built-in support for regular expressions, is ideally suited to processing
the SQL schema file.
Currently the XML deployment descriptors are fragments, since the
Stateless Session Bean Facade portion of the application is not being
generated. A further extension would be to describe the SSBF interfaces and
Entity bean mappings in an XML file, much like what was previously done
