Anyone using a product called ironspeed ?
Not more spam. How stupid do you think people are?
It got you to notice and respond.
I think code generation tools are great.
And the code generation tool that does not suck is ????
I don't own stock in ironspeed or work for them or promote it. I am just trying to find out if people use code generation tools and what might be good or bad based on experience. I just stumbled across ironspeed by internet searching.
Generally for any largish type project I've seen teams roll their own code generator. It's not that difficult once you get some base templates down and your database schema is in place. I think I've got about three or four different code generators from different projects I've been on laying around somewhere.

+1 for CodeSmith - I rarely take the time to manually code a custom Collection, List, etc. anymore.
The project I'm currently working on was originally started using Ironspeed (before I came on-board.. it never would've passed evaluation from me). I would strongly recommend that you stay far, far away from it. Notice, I said the app was 'started' using Ironspeed. Eventually, it started to choke and caused no end of problems and died a very horrible, and unrecoverable, death to our application.
