This section provides you with the reference documentation for the generators. Amongst others you find release notes for generators in here.
The versioning rules follow the semantic versioning convention. Maintenance releases get an incremented patch/bugfix version number, e.g. from 2.1.3 to 2.1.4. It is possible that such releases change the code generation output. These changes are supposed to be uncritical for the proper working of the generated application. To use such a newer generator you don’t need to change any generation project. The generation projects pick them up automatically, whenever a new patch/bugfix version gets installed.
Increments of minor versions include significantly new generator features. When using a new generator with an increased minor version number for the very first time, you should carefully check the generation output. New or modified generation projects are required to use such a new generator.
When chosing a new generator that has an incremented major version number, it is highly possible that you have to do some manual changes to make the generated output and manually written code work properly again. Normally, a migration guide is provided in such cases. New or modified generation projects are required to use such a new generator.
