This project is a code generator written in Java used to generate Android code. Given a database schema JSON definition file, it will generate all the code you need to add the corresponding ContentProvider in your project.
Architecture of the project
The java project found in the folder 'generator' contains the following folders :
- src : The code used to generate your ContentProvider. Normally you shouldn't have to modify it.
- res : This folder contains snippets of code used by the generator.
- input : This folder contains your database schema JSON definition files. You can have multiple JSON files next to each other. An example and the JSON format are available in the example subfolder.
- output : This is where the generated code will be written. Each generate code will be stored in a folder based on the corresponding JSON file name to separate them.

Building/Running from the CLI
mkdir generator/bin mkdir generator/bin/input cd generator/bin ln -s ../res . javac $(find ../src -name *.java) -d . mkdir input cp ../example/sample.json ./input java com/foxykeep/cpcodegenerator/Main
You can find in the 'sample' folder an example of an Android application which uses the generated ContentProvider
