Sculptor Build Status Maven Central Gitter

Sculptor is an open source productivity tool that applies the concepts from Domain-Driven Design and Domain Specific Languages.

You express your design intent in a textual specification (within an Eclipse editor), from which Sculptor generates (with a Maven plugin) high quality Java code and configuration. You can use the concepts from Domain-Driven Design (DDD) in the textual Domain Specific Language (DSL). E.g. Service, Module, Entity, Value Object, Repository.

The generated code is based on well-known frameworks, such as JPA, Hibernate, Spring Framework or Java EE. Sculptor takes care of the technical details, the tedious repetitive work, and let you focus on delivering more business value - and have more fun.

System Requirements

To use Sculptor you need local installations of the following tools:

The installation and configuration of these tools is described in Sculptors installation guide.

Sculptor consists of an Eclipse plugin (the DSL editor) and a Maven plugin (the code generator) with its Maven archetypes:

The installation and configuration of these tools is described in Sculptors installation guide.
