This code generator goes steps further in the automatic creation of CRUD functionality. In addition to the standard Bean, DAO, and Gateway most generators create, this generator will also create a controller, HTML data table or CF8 data grid and a form with multiple add, update and delete functionality, integrated form validation for required fields, optional rich text area and integrated date chooser. An Actionscript Value Object and Flex CRUD MXML Component can also be generated. Other options include the use of graphics or textual links in the HTML code and the ability to automatically write files (and graphics if chosen) to the file system (except for VO and MXML).

This code generator rocks. I have been looking for a well built generator with an intuitive and feature-packed wizard that will create well formed code, and tons of it. It has already saved me a great deal of time, and has even taught me a bit about OO.
