SoftFluent announced today that CodeFluent Entities and its Microsoft Visual Studio integrated graphical editor now provides an out-of-the box Windows 8 generator. It is now possible to generate mobile ready web services as well as complete Windows Store apps in minutes.
CodeFluent Entities allows developers to generate components such as scripts (e.g., T-SQL, PL/SQL, My SQL, PgSQL), code (e.g., C#, VB), web services (e.g. WCF, JSON/REST) and UIs (e.g., Windows 8, ASP.NET, SharePoint, WPF, Silverlight). The code generation process is ‘model-first’ and continuous: from your declarative model, a meta-model will be inferred which code generators will then translate into code. Over 20 code generators (a.k.a. ‘producers’) are provided ‘out of the box’ and that can be combined to obtain your own application following your desired architecture, using your desired technologies.
Since your application development is driven from this model, your business logic is decoupled from the technology and allows you to absorb changes faster and smoother: apply changes in your model to update all your layers consistently or add/switch technology by changing your used code generators. CodeFluent Entities is designed for the .NET platform and empowers users to streamline developments on major Microsoft platforms and technologies such as SQL Server, C#, VB.NET, WCF, ASP.NET, WPF, Windows 8, SharePoint, SQL Azure, third-party databases and more.
“Aligning closely to Windows 8, as well as what we did for Visual Studio 2012, we are confirming our commitment to the Microsoft developer community to help them keep up with the quick innovation pace” said Daniel Cohen-Zardi, SoftFluent Chief Executive Officer. “CodeFluent Entities already implements a similar design style and helps you generate both .NET and WinJS/HTML 5 applications with a consistent approach.”
“Core to Visual Studio 2012 is its focus on streamlining development and providing developers a complete tool box to build modern applications efficiently,” said Tom Lindeman, Director of the Visual Studio Industry Program (VSIP) at Microsoft. “SoftFluent’s innovative CodeFluent Entities, aligning with the release of several major products from Microsoft, reduces the effort required by developers to build software in line with their own preferred architecture and technologies.”
