Eclipse Plugin: Q-U-I-G-E-N


Quigen is an Eclipse Plugin to quickly generate any kind of text content.
The content generation-engine is Velocity.

The main intention of this plugin is to provide a simple and quick way to do content generation in Eclipse based on models, which you have already in your workspace.
