We ve found that the best mitigation for this problem is to take the trouble to produce a reorganized data structure at the top of a template This new data structure uses standard NET collections and structures, and consolidates the job of gathering together and aggregating dispersed data from across the model in a manner optimized for the job of traversing it to produce template output Very often this data structure can itself be reused across a range of similar templates This produces a template organized into a data-gathering phase and an output phase that is then relatively simple because it traverses the pre-prepared data structures with simple expressions

When output formats for artifacts do not natively support being constructed from multiple les, a two-stage approach can provide another solution Let s take the example of the webconfig le for our Issue Tracker system webconfig les are simple XML les and don t support any standard mechanism for inclusion However, we can create a master text template that stitches together the output of several other templates to produce a consolidated le Here s an example of such a master template:

Any of the three included component config les could be either the generated output of another template or a simple text le In the case of a simple text le, that part of the le is then free to be manually edited, thus combining manual editing with code generation in the same output le One further problem remains, however, with this approach the template transformations must be executed in the correct order to produce the correct output The DSL Tools V1 do not have a pre-canned solution to this

problem, providing only the Transform All Templates button inside Visual Studio When there are only a few les involved that are not often changed, the manual approach of running the templates in the correct order may suf ce, but when the problem grows and this becomes unmanageable, a custom solution must be developed A custom command can be developed as part of a DSL designer that invokes the text templating engine in the correct sequence; we ll see how to do this shortly The master template approach just outlined brings many further le types into the realm of the generable, but it is not suitable for all le types Where a le is a complex and perhaps unpredictable mixture of manually editable sections and sections that it would be desirable to code generate, then the current version of the text templating engine does not have a clear answer In those cases, there may be no alternative but building a full parser for the artifact and coupling that to your designer using the Visual Studio SDK in order to be able to watch changes to the artifact and merge generated sections and hand-edited ones This is not a trivial undertaking, and it may be that using generated code only as a one-shot starting point for manual editing of this kind of le is the best that can be achieved with a practical amount of investment for most projects

If you nd you need to tailor the artifact generation system to your exact needs, there are a variety of customization points available: The text templating system can be embedded into other tools outside of Visual Studio that you ship with your DSL using a mechanism called custom hosting Custom data can be imported into a text template for processing using a custom directive processor The text templating system can easily be invoked inside Visual Studio to build a custom orchestration system We ll look at these three extensibility points in turn but rst, in order to understand how they t into the bigger picture, let s take a tour through the implementation architecture of the text templating system
