    [forge-users]  And what about being able to generate methods ?

      Hi all,


      As you might know by now, I'm creating a Java EE 6 Advanced training course

      extensively using JBoss Forge. At one point, I create a set of EJBs.... and

      I need to create a few methods on each one.


      I was wondering if it would make sense to have JBoss Forge generating

      methods ?


      Until now, Forge creates classes (e.g. jpa-new-entity, cdi-new-bean,

      java-new-class), annotations (cdi-new-qualifier,

      constraint-new-annotation...), attributes (jpa-new-field,

      java-new-field...) but nowhere Forge creates methods. This could make sense

      in most of the artifacts (EJBs, CDI bean, Java, but also JPA).


      Do you think it would be good to have such functionnality ?


      Something like :


      ejb-new-method --named findById --return org.agoncal.model.Author

      --parameters Long id

      ejb-new-method --named removeById --return void --parameters Long id

      ejb-new-method --named updateName --return

      org.agoncal.model.Author --parameters Long id, String name, String surname

      java-new-method --named doStuff --return String --parameters Integer p1,

      String p2, String p3


      What do you think ?
