Description Jan Lahoda 2007-03-07 14:08:56 UTC
It seems that several modules need methods like "Implement All Abstract
Methods". It would be nice to have utilities in java/source that would provide
such services. The exact list of the utility methods is currently pending.

It would be nice to also have methods for creating at least the default Java
class and interface from the respective templates. Something like:

void createDefaultClass(FileObject targetFolder, String name) throws IOException;
void createDefaultInterface(FileObject targetFolder, String name) throws

or perhaps just

enum TemplateKind { CLASS, INTERFACE };
void createFromTemplate(TemplateKind template, FileObject targetFolder, String
name) throws IOException;

which can be nicely extended with further templates, but has the disadvantage
that it doesn't allow more parameters for other templates that might need more 
than just a name String.

I would like to avoid keeping a 3rd copy of GenerationUtils in j2ee/persistence/verification, hope this 
issue moves forward...
