SeCoGen - A Service Code Generator

OASIcs-SLATE-2019-23.pdf (0.4 MB)


The architectural pattern of micro-services is being increasingly adopted by developers, facilitating the maintenance and scalability of the systems' code. The adoption and consumption of these micro-services are often seen on the front-end code of the Web applications. Nevertheless, this adoption obliges web designers/developers to know where to look for those web services, to read their documentation and to write the request/response code as well to control the corresponding UI rendering. This whole process is time-consuming and error-prone. This article introduces SeCoGen as an interactive code generator for Web service parsing and consumption. The generator benefits from an HTTP request template, a query normalizer and dynamic UI templates. In order, to validate the generator feasibility and usefulness, a REST API to search for countries is used.
