Telosys variables
Telosys provides a set of predefined variables which can be used in all template files.

Standard variables

Standard variables have predefined names, their values are either set by Telosys or can be defined in the project configuration.

Special characters

These variables are used to simplify the writing of templates when certain special characters are required and are difficult to mix with Velocity syntax.
These variables should be considered as "constants" and used as such.
Variable name
Variable value
$DOLLAR (dollar character)
$
$SHARP (sharp character)
#
$AMP (ampersand character)
&
$QUOT (double quotation mark)
"
$LT (less-than sign)
<
$GT (greater-than sign)
>
$LBRACE (left brace)
{
$RBRACE (right brace)
}
$NEWLINE (new line character)
\n
$TAB (tabulation character)
\t

Project configuration

These variables are specific for each project. They can be defined in the project configuration file ( "telosys-tools.cfg" )
All the project configuration variables are usable in both templates files (".vm" files) and bundle configuration file ("templates.cfg").

Directories

Variable name
Configuration value
$SRC
Directory where to generate sources
e.g. "src/main/java", "src"
$RES
Directory where to generate resources
e.g. "src/main/resources", "conf"
$WEB

e.g. "src/main/webapp", "www"
$TEST_SRC

$DOC

$TMP

Packages
Variables usable for target languages having a notion of "packages" or "modules" or "namespaces" (Java, Golang, C#, etc)
Variable name
Configuration value
$ROOT_PKG
The root package containing all other packages
$ENTITY_PKG
The package containing the entities classes or structures

Specific variables

If you need more variables for your project you can define them in the project configuration file "telosys-tools.cfg".
Once defined, these specific variables are usable exactly like standard variables.
You can use them in both templates files (".vm" files) and bundle configuration file ("templates.cfg").
