Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] Freemarker

Yes, it is sort of a Java extension. For instance it extends Java with support for template string concatenation ;-)

The advantage of Xtend over Freemarker and the like is that it is statically typed and has very good tool support.
In addition it sports smart whitespace handling.

I've recorded a screencast some time ago, demoing the template support:

Xtend is a Java language extension, no? I'm talking about a template engine that we use in the new project wizard to instantiate code templates based on various user selectable options.

I was originally thinking of Jet, but I can't seem to find it anymore. Whatever happened to it?

Has anyone tried to get Freemarker into Orbit? Or is there a better template engine that people are using. CDT has it's own but I'd like to use something more standard (and better).

Thanks,
Doug.
