These principles are my non-negotiables for code generation: • Principle #1: You have control of the templates that generate your code and can change or replace them as required. • Principle #2: You collect metadata as a separate, distinct step with usable output that can independently evolve. • Principle #3: You, or someone unfamiliar with project, can regenerate your code precisely as a one-click process—now or at any point in the future. qxd 12/18/03 1:27 PM Page 32 Chapter 1 • Principle #4: You embrace handcrafted code by isolating and protecting it.

The metadata tailors the generated code to your specific application and environment. Metadata literally tells the template patterns how to implement themselves, so you can’t create quality code-generated systems without quality metadata. For simplicity, I’ll assume you’re expressing metadata as XML. This is the most straightforward mechanism and is immediately accessible to all programmers on all platforms. It’s also the required metadata format for XSLT code generation. Metadata for business entities or middle-tier data containers are generally based either on your database or a parallel description of your business objects.

Qxd 12/18/03 1:27 PM Page 29 Introducing Code Generation There are several types of handcrafted code: • Startup • Exception reporting • Components • Utility methods • Base class functionality • Debug support • Code with insufficient, inconsistent, or interspersed patterns • Class-specific code In addition to the first six categories that are singleton in nature (meaning you only need one of them for your application), several characteristics in your target file might lead you to handcraft files that could also be candidates for generation.
