Some remarks on what you can edit on this screen:

Code generation is template driven. See the topic templates for more information.

You always need to add a connection entity, before you can start adding Server entities

When running in Class mode the class name of the generated source is equal to the entity name

When running in RDD mode the editor will only merge the source code of different connections into each other, if you don't change the source code too much.

When running In RDD mode you must specify the callback class name.
