Hi,
I believe you are referring to http://codeontime.com 
This is just my opinion:

I am a sr. software developer and since past 4 years I have
had experiences with different types of code generation utilities
(tho haven't tried this one yet !)
and also have created one myself to fit my company's needs.
My experience suggests that any tool is good as long as you
use its autogenerated solutions as it is without modifications.
If you need to make quick changes and alter some logic in some way , either it is not possible at all or is difficult to do so. You end up wasting good $$ on support calls and other stuff. Lastly some developer will be working on to fix that for you.

I have used this http://www.mygenerationsoftware.com/ tool for
software generation, its template based too but its FREE. It has its own pros and cons but as its FREE, no grudges afterall.

Let me know if you need further help.

Hi,

I agree completely with techExtreme. Some of these code generation apps do quite a good job "out-of-the-box", but over time requirements always change and you end up with costly fixes due to the "rigidity" of the frameworks. With that said, I don't have enough experiense of codeontime or insight to your specific requirements related to business apps to tell whether it would meet your needs or not.

well thanks for the reply. I totally agreed with you guys but this product seems to be different. It creates the whole solution which you can open directly through visual studio and do your required modifications manually.  I am digging more into it in addition to finding some live experience responses.


As you mentioned, mygeneration.com, i have seen this product before but never used. Can you give some negative aspect of this product. What are weakness etc.

well there are lot of good things about mygeneration which you can read on http://www.mygenerationsoftware.com/

About negative aspect, there are lot of community driven templates available for download. As such you may not find a template directly which will generate whole project which can be used directly out-of-the-blue but once you create the template (which is also free by the way) you can then start re-using it for future project auto generation. And then you can decide whether you want to share the created templates with the community or not.
