O amadurecimento das abordagens de modelagem de software orientado a aspectos fornece subsídios para a geração automática de código a partir de modelos UML. Neste artigo são descritos diversos mecanismos para a geração de código a partir de modelos Theme/UML, e são discutidas algumas dificuldades envolvidas neste processo.
