Code generator - Architecture

From Laja
Jump to: navigation, search

This diagram explains the design of the code generator in Laja:

  1. Laja can read from different kind of data sources and formats. The data is used by the template enginge to produce output files.
  2. The user wants to generate one or more text files (code, documentation etc). To do that a template file needs to be created.
  3. The next step is to let Laja execute the template file to perform the code generation.
  4. The result is some kind of text file(s) (4) that combines the data (1), the tempate file(s) (2), and optionally some user imports and/or user libraries (.jar files) (3).
