Rapid prototyping, good; code generating, bad

· Coding

Austin Govella explains why Rapid prototyping tools should NOT generate code:

Why would you need the prototyping tool to generate production code? Is there something about the code they would generate that would make it better than the custom code most applications require? Does the rapid prototyper’s code generator let me tell it how to generate the code, so it codes the way I need it to?
