To the Group,
I'm currently (still) in the middle of a large application using ARP, and
about to begin planning two more.
I saw the OS tool Muse which I understand creates stub code. I haven't been
able to get this to work on my machine, so I though I'd write a small comand
line tool, using xml as the project configuration source. It relies on .net
1.1 being installed.
At the moment, it will create your project directory (Windows only), the
View, Command, Business, VO, and Controller directories (based on your
package), create the individual view files you specify in the xml, the
controller file, and the commands files. Business and VO files next on the
In each of these, it is possible to have the app create the imports
(standard for all views/commands, and individual ones), the class name with
any extends/implements, methods (including dispatch events and comments),
properties, and also the class's comments.
You of course need to spend some time creating the app config file, but it
really takes the hassle out of setting up a new app folder, getting rid of
all the cutting and pasting.
If anyone is interested in taking a look, please let me know. I'd really
like some feedback on how I can make this useful to anyone else who is
having difficulties getting Muse to work.
Many thanks for all the useful tips and comments on the ARP mailing list - I
wouldn't have gotten a quarter as far as I have without them.
