Modeling Input for Generators¶
All generators are built in a modular way, such that it would be easy to provide the same generator functionality with a different model input. Please contact us if you want to use the generators but need a different modeling approach.
All generators “understand” models that are created by means of the Virtual Developer Modeler‘s textual domain specific languages (DSLs). The textual modeler is provided as an Eclipse plugin. You can install it from the Eclipse Marketplace.
Ideally, you use the Virtual Developer Modeler to create model files. You could also use a basic text editor for the modeling, though. But without the Virtual Developer Modeler you will be missing syntax highlighting, code proposals and error markers.
For a few of the generators there are generators available that take OpenAPI models as input. Those generators create webservices and webservice clients.
A modeling tool that you can use in your webbrowser and that stores all models in a central place (cloud or intranet) is in the making. Please get in touch with us if you want to learn more about it.
