Raise your level of abstraction
I'm an old programmer >> I've been programming using VB >>> I used to write code manually using normal modeling such as flowcharts and pseudo codes >>> So, using code generators is new to me
After Google search I found that the best code generator for me to work on is CodeSmith Code Generator because it can be attached with VS.Net and generates VB Code
I need to make a phd research to create testing tool for this vb code generator and I'm lost a little bit.
Tasks Achieved :
1- Downloading CodeSmith Code generator and trying to understand how it works from their official website CodeSmith
2- Trying to read some articles and papers about testing code generators such as :
I hope that somebody guides me in the following :
1- Did I choose the best code generator for my skills (VB.Net , VS.Net)?
2- Do you suggest any references that I can read about testing code generators ?
3- Do you suggest anything else to do to start my research ?
After All , I hope that you convince Dr. Andy Carpenter to accept supervising my research :) :) >>> he is a member in this group >>> just kidding :)
