My question seems easy but is little more theoretical than it looks. There are Code Generation software or application building software that gets done without the use of a programming language. Application like VE Server and VE Designer from Intelliun should accomplish this task. My question is, in reality have someone out there track the amount of real savings of this kind of tool versus having a development team and a source code evolutionary process.
For the specific example of VE Designer the application gets done from the designer and you don’t see code for it, you just run the app in VE Server. All code looks like XML Internal commands.
