"Vincent, APF intends to contrast from SOA assembly tools (like tibco) by focusing on integration of code - that real programmers would assemble & place inside a single executeable.
I will soon publish doc which expresses how APF approach…"
The discussion here in this thread has helped me realize 'community management' as an equally crucial component of the challenge (which otherwise I was leaving for last moment)
I am now gearing up for a…"
"What I understood: it's a way of programming by assembling code snippets retrieved from a code snippets searchable repository. Looks like building an app in assembling services in kind of a SOA way, as we could imagine to do it…"
"Agreed. Making hundreds of people to agree-upon abstractions is tougher part. Even if with provisions such as 'dependency resolver, illegal combination of code units detector' & others, APF may be able make stitched code look…"
"Yes, I agree here. To extract every possible re-useable code, a simple refactor may nto be enough. Unless the codebase from which re-useable code was to be picked is rewritten (to facilitate easy extraction of re-useable code fused in it). I would…"
"Rafael, I havent come across a mature (or failed) attempt in past where 'stiching together' reuseable code was tried. So I thought it must be given a fair try. Also while working/dreaming this project for 2nd year in a row, and having…"
"Every general programming language has something unique about it. If all 'good general purpose programming languages' were to offer easy DSL-building features, i believe it would take them significant inertia.
So I opine that rather…"
Automatic Programming Framework (APF) is an Open Source project – which aims to bring new leap in automatic programming Before I seek volunteers to mature it, I need your opinion on - Whether you find the approach of APF promising It uses Model Driven Development to auto integrate lots of Re-useable code – to build a software. Theoretically, it appears it will code 50% to 100% of small or large software projects. Why APF?Using Language Workbench…See More
