How to use XDoclet to generate classes from database Meta-info?
posted 8 years ago
Hi Folks, I have a requirement in my application, to generate DAO source-codes & queries-xml file for basic CRUD operation on each table in DB. More explicitly, if I have a table in DB, called TBL_COMPANY, i want to write a java-code which will read the database-metadata info, and generate a XML file (say, tblCompanyAccess.xml) that contains SQL queries for basic CRUD operation in TBL_COMPANY. Plus, the same code has to generate a DAO source-file, which will have select(), insert(), update(), delete() methods implemented to use the queries from "tblCompanyAccess.xml" & perform the job. Can I use XDoclet api to achieve this task? If yes, then can anybody atleat guide me how to start with?
