I've observed a team of developers using XSLT as a build tool to generate C++ code.... They modelled various aspects of the problem domain
using XML, and used XSLT templates to pump out C++.
Anyone else have experience long-term applying a similar approach?
Yes, me. Actually we model EAI interfaces in a customized XML vocabulary and generate IDL, C++ code, DTDs, Java code as well as HTML and PDF documentation (online, using Cocoon). Works great. The main advantages for us: - The docs are guaranteed to describe what is in the code. - A new interface mechanism, lets say web services, requires only to write a relatively small set of transformations to generate the variable adapter code and some libraries. We cranked out a Siebel adapter in less than a week. We are using this since more than three years now.
