Legacy Connector & Metadata Wizard in Pega 8.4.3.

In Pega 8.4.3 there is Legacy Connector & Metadata Wizard.

 

We use 1) Pega->Integration->Connectors->Connector & Metadata Wizard Choose generate connector rules from a java class

2) Pega->Integration->Connectors->Connector & Metadata Wizard Choose to generate data mapping rules from a java bean

 

We have some questions: Which version of java does the pega code generator expect or is designed for?

What is the scope of the source code the pega code generator looks at? Does it only look for specific classes or packages or is it analyzing the entire codebase? How does it determine specific classes or packages if that is what it does?

Are there any specific design patterns in the code required to be followed for the pega code generator to operate?

Are there any java constructs which are not supported for the pega code generator to operate?

Are there any other rules or restrictions beyond java compilation rules which need to be followed for the pega code generator to operate?

More general questions:

Is the pega code generator using source code or byte code for introspecting or parsing the code for its use?

Is there a developers/user guide for use of the code generator?

Is there a developers/user guide for source code requirements when using the code generator?
