Generating Code for Object Mappings

JEAF Generator offers the possibility to unburden developers from error-prawn and boring job of mapping objects from one into another. To do so, a so called object mapping can be defined in the UML model by defining dependencies between attributes using stereotype «ObjectMapping». Object mappings distinguish between creating, updating and reading of objects.

When it comes to code generation JEAF Generator will generate a converter class for every combination of two classes that have an object mapping. The generated code will be written to slot src-gen and is not intended for manual editing.


The generated converter class let’s you:

  • create a new target object from an existing source object

  • create a new source object an existing target object

  • update an existing target object from an existing source object
