Golang
To define Golang as the target language in a template file :
1
#set( $env.language = 'Go' )
Copied!
The information below shows the behavior of the generator when Golang is the current target language.

Types conversion

The table below describes how model neutral types are automatically converted to Golang types with potential impact due to attribute annotations.
Model type
Go type
with annotation
string
string
byte
byte uint8
@UnsignedType
short
int16 uint16
@UnsignedType
int
int32 uint32
@UnsignedType
long
int64 uint64
@UnsignedType
decimal
float64
float
float32
double
float64
boolean
bool
date
time.Time
time
time.Time
timestamp
time.Time
binary
[ ] byte

Annotations effects

  • @UnsignedType has effect only for byte, short, int, long
  • @ObjectType no effect
  • @NotNull no effect
  • @PrimitiveType no effect

Specific types

  • $attribute.fullType no effect (always returns the standard Go type)
  • $attribute.simpleType
    no effect (always returns the standard Go type)
  • $attribute.wrapperType no effect (always returns the standard Go type)
So, for Golang you can always use the basic "$attribute.type"
