This report describes the results of a one-day workshop on Generative Programming (GP) at ECOOP’01. The goal of the workshop was to discuss the state-of-the-art of generative programming, share experience, consolidate successful techniques, discuss the relation of GP to object-oriented programming and other emerging approaches such as Aspect-Oriented Programming or Multidimensional Decomposition, and identify open issues for future work. This report gives a summary of the workshop contributions, debates, and the identified future directions.
