Generative Programming

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 2548)


This report describes the results of a one-day workshop on Generative Programming (GP) at ECOOP’02. The goal of the workshop was to discuss the state-of-the-art of generative techniques, share experience, consolidate successful techniques, and identify open issues for future work. This report gives a summary of the workshop contributions, debates, and the identified future directions.
