Thread: Pentaho PDI dialog (code generation?)

    Default Pentaho PDI dialog (code generation?)

    Looking at the PDI dialogs it seems to me that they may have been
    generated by a tool.. Is that the case or are they all hand written?

    If they are all hand written anyone though of or is working on a tool
    to generate the gui code for a step?

    Thanks
    Jean-Claude

    Aaaaa, that is a long story. Originally (and few people know this) I
    indeed generated the code for the dialogs. I even released some code at
    some point prior to releasing Kettle.
    However, in the end you realize that most dialogs need to have some
    peculiar feature that you just can't automatically generate code for so I
    abandoned the idea.

    That being said, I am indeed (very slowly) working on a tool to generate
    code and i18n for XML like this:

    http://source.pentaho.org/viewvc/svn...ml?view=markup

    In theory it should be possible to automatically figure out when a table
    view is needed and so forth. It's not very high on the priory list though.

    Take care,
    Matt
