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.

Breathe life into your Designer!

You have your shiny new DSL up and running thanks to the Eclipse Modeling Technologies and you built a powerful tooling with graphical modelers, textual syntaxes or dedicated editors to support it. But how can you see what is going on when a model is executed ? Don't you need to simulate your design in some way ? Wouldn't you want to see your editors being animated directly within your modeling environment based on execution traces or simulator results?
