I'm doing some background research into code generation from domain
models into target architectures (e.g. J2EE). While there are myriad
technical issues to juggle with, I'm particularly interested in the
people-related factors that impinge on the subject. In discussions
I've come across opinions right across the spectrum: fanatically
supportive to vehemently dismissive.
It's my guess this is reminiscent of the introduction of 3gl
compilers, and I'm interested in any applicable learning from that
time. For example:
. What finally convinced die hard assembly programmers that compilers
could cut it?
. Significant obstacles to adoption?
. Significant features/circumstances that catalysed widespread
Any references or direct experience would be very welcome.
