I hava tried to developp my Eclipse Scout pages / form with the Kotlin langage : . It works well with pages and allowes to reduce considerably the amount of code.

Exemple of the HelloWorldPage :
class HelloWorldPage : AbstractPageWithNodes(){
	override fun getConfiguredLeaf() = true
	override fun getConfiguredTableVisible() = false
	override fun getConfiguredTitle() =	TEXTS.get("HelloWorld")
	override fun getConfiguredDetailForm() =

But I can't manage to produce FormData generated classes. The SDK doesn't seem to look forkotlin classes to generate classes.
Is there a way to indicate to the generator to look for Kotlin classes ?

An other question, is there a plan to integrate Kotlin into the ECLIPSE scout framework, for example generate kotlin classes directly ? This could be a great feature for Eclipse Scout because Kotlin is a very interesting langage that allows a more concise and secure development.
Thank you very much.

Form example :
@FormData(value = HelloWorldFormData2::class, sdkCommand = FormData.SdkCommand.CREATE)
class HelloWorldForm : AbstractForm() {
    	init {
	class MainBox : AbstractGroupBox() {

		class TopBox : AbstractGroupBox() {

			override fun getConfiguredLabel() = TEXTS.get("MessageFromServer")

			class MessageField : AbstractStringField() {
				override fun getConfiguredGridW() = 2
				override fun getConfiguredLabel() = TEXTS.get("Message")
				override fun getConfiguredEnabled() = false
	inner class ViewHandler : AbstractFormHandler() {

		override fun execLoad() {
			// Code

Hi Stéphane,

Thank you very much for sharing your experience with us! Indeed it looks very nice and compact.

You are right: Currently Kotlin is not supported. Feel free to open a bug for adding Kotlin support. But I cannot make any promises if or when it could be implemented.

Until now there is no plan to integrate Kotlin. Neither in parsing and DTO creation nor in the creation of new source code.

Kind regards

Hi MAt,

Thank you for your answer.

We can still have a full kotlin project without the formdata generation if we use the Spring boot project.

I have prepared an example here

It is based on the scout boot minimal archetype.
