Xtend beyond Java: generate cool stuff (C++, Qt) for mobile apps


Developing mobile apps for C++ / Qt environments using Eclipse Momentics (based on CDT) there's much stuff you have to code manually or copy/paste every day.

I developed a DSL based on Xtend to make this much easier. This isn't an app generator - it's more like generating a workbench where you'll find all those patterns to work offline (caching to JSON or SQLite), to deal with C++ Pointers for business logic and UI. All the boring stuff will be generated.

Live coding

In this session we'll start from cratch: design a data model, generate the code and then add some UI logic to get a running app.


Then take a look at the templates to see how Xtend can be used to generate C++ instead of Java !
