Metastorage improved generation options
Manuel Lemos, 2004-08-26 20:00:00 GMT
|A new version of Metastorage was released with improved options to
configure where the generated files will be stored.
This release also includes several bug fixes and improvements in Webstorage
- the Metastorage Web interface application.
The Metastorage compiler command line interface has several new options
that make it work like any normal Unix/Linux command line program. The
--help switch makes it show all the supported command line
The most important new option let the developer specify a directory where
will be generated all the files important for the applications at runtime.
There is also a new option to specify where the UML class diagram graph
file is generated, if requested.
Webstorage was also improved to provide means to control the new
Metastorage options from its Web interface. The
screenshots page was updated to
show the Web user interface improvements.
The whole generation process is much cleaner now because all intermediate
files are created only inside a work sub-directory in the Metastorage
installation directory. The developer no longer needs to be concerned with
all these temporary files that are not useful for their applications after
their component classes are generated.
