How to reverse-engineer the DDLs of all database objects with a script?

I need a mechanism which could be executed in a script (either Windows or UNIX) to generate the DDLs of re-creating all DB objects (tables, views, stored procedures etc.) in a given SQL Server 2008 database.

Any suggestion?

As I mentioned in the question, I need a mechanism which could be executed in a script, without human intervention.

Thanks folks. Now I have enough information to start with my solutions, probably powershell + SMO. It would be even better if SMO has a Java interface.
