CFEclipse dictionary generator

Monday, March 10, 2008

Some time ago I started working on a generic cfeclipse dictionary generator. But, as things go, it got put on the backburner, then the way backburner. The thing is, I think this is one of those things you can get maybe 60-70% right, if that, with using just the information available to you with getMetadata() with the default attributes on tags. To get the rest, you either have to add it in after the fact or go with something like custom attributes, or maybe annotations in comments, or some other such thing. I prefer custom attributes myself. Now, me, i don't want to add in the rest by hand, because then you lose any ability to autogenerate documentation as part of build processes, etc., which is quite appealing to me. So I'm wondering: has anyone out there in the community built such a tool?

Marc,

I just wrote something that does this pretty well.
