The step-by-step guide to creating program generators with Java and XML.

  • Breakthrough Java/XML techniques for creating program generators, including detailed examples and real-world guidelines
  • Domain engineering techniques for improving software development productivity
  • CD-ROM with examples, working code, and relevant XML specifications
"XML isn't just for data any more. Now you can use XML to describe the programs you need, then write a Java program template to generate them automatically. This book shows you how."

—Charles F. Goldfarb

Using Java and XML, you can now easily create "wizard-like" program generators that automate much of the work of software development(and deliver significant productivity improvements. In this book, former Bell Laboratories Distinguished Staff Member J. Craig Cleaveland shows you how to do it. Using extensive practical examples, Program Generators with XML and Java walks you through every step:

  • Identifying off-the-shelf tools for quickly building program generators
  • Domain Analysis: determining the terminology, boundaries, commonalities, and variabilities of software families
  • Domain Implementation: processes and tools for efficiently generating customized software
  • Accounting for run-time and compile-time variabilities
  • Using XML documents as program specifications, and using the DOM and SAX APIs to read and analyze them
  • Using JavaServer Pages and XPath/XSLT to generate customized software
  • The role of reusable architectures and components, including JavaBeans

Chances are, you're already using automated GUI builders, database application generators, and other code generation "wizards." Now, with Program Generators with XML and Java, you can extend the advantages of code generation throughout your own custom applications and get to market faster, with greater reliability and lower costs.
