    Note, it is possible to override the templates coming from the generator in case you need to add/remove something from the generated classes. To do so, copy the templates you need from the generator repository, amend them, and set the files in the plugin with the following line:

    > I remember when XML was the main data interchange format of the web. That sucked.

    I wonder why - apart from the "Should this be an element or an attribute?" issues and oddities in various implementations, XML doesn't seem like the worst thing ever.

    Actually, I'd argue that WSDL that was used with SOAP was superior to how most people worked with REST (and how some do), since it's taken OpenAPI years to catch up and codegen is still not quite as widespread, despite notable progress:

    What does leave a sour taste, however, is the fact that configuration turned into XML hell (not in a web context, but for apps locally) much like we have YAML hell nowadays, as well as people being able to focus on codegen absolved them of the need to pay lots of attention towards how intuitive their data structures are.

    FWIW, we go the other way, i.e., using the spec to generate code using openapi-generator. Generated code quality is high. We generate both model classes and service interfaces. In practice, this allows the team to discuss API design decisions at a high level on the fly in the spec editor, and then use the generated code to quickly divide and conquer implementation. We are also more microservice than monolith, though, so we tend to have more, smaller APIs, which probably factors into our experience.
