Cool tool

Thursday, May 29th, 2003

Busy as a freakin bee for the past while. But you knew that, because I’ve been quiet.

A couple of years ago, my JSRS library won a contest at Planet Source Code. I selected CodeCharge as my prize. Because of this reason and that, I never got around to spending the time to get over the hump with it.

Lately I’ve been working on a project where a colleague uses CodeCharge to generate database maintenance screens, so I was motivated to have a second look, and then to use it myself in another project I’m working on.

Wow, what a great tool to do all the gruntwork associated with building database screens. Simple yet powerful, and it generates code for a whole bunch of environments (asp/jsp/perl/php/cf) and connects to many different databases both design side and runtime.

I’m liking it!
