In this paper we present CommentTemplate, which realizes code generation features, as known from many model-driven development tools, as a Java language extension. This paper first introduces CommentTemplate and discusses its features and limitations. Second, it discusses CommentTemplate as an example of (a) a tool that makes concepts from model-driven development easily accessible for Java programmers and (b) a powerful and stable tool that was realized in a short time thanks to Eclipse modeling technology.
