It’s expected that once you have an interface language, like WSDL or CORBA IDL, that you will have
a suite of tools that allows you to generate stubs, skeletons, starting code, tests and so forth from the basic interface description in the implementation language of your choice. This is a very important productivity element for any developer, as having to code up server skeletons by hand is just an outrageously dull task.
When I was putting together CORBA systems, I used a tool called idlgen
which saved huge amounts of time by generating complete test suites with randomized data, and allowed you to produce stubs, skeletons and mainline code in a jiffy. In my current work, I’m using EMF to represent a suite of models, from which I generate implementation code.
Is there someone doing this already? Let me know if you find them!
