oddgen is a SQL Developer extension to invoke dictionary-driven code generators. Dictionary-driven means that the predominant part of a model is stored in the data dictionary of the RDBMS or in related data stores. Generators written in a JVM language or in PL/SQL are discovered after connecting to a database and presented in a navigator tree. The oddgen generator interface is designed to hide the complexity from the user and to support generation of any target code in just a few mouse clicks.
