The Joomla Component Creator is a component builder lets you effortlessly develop, customize and build ready-to-install components for the Joomla 1.6, 1.7, 2.5 and 3.0 platforms. A component view can hold multiple custom fields and can allow both back and front end editing. All Joomla component field types are supported as well as many custom ones including foreign keys.
Component code generated strictly follows the Joomla MVC structure and formatting guides.
You can develop a fully functioning component in 5 minutes:
1. Name your component
2. Add a table/view
3. Add fields
4. Build your component
5. Install the component in your Joomla Admin
If you have ever developed a Joomla component before then you know that a lot of time is spent on copy pasting views, controllers and models and renaming them. Now you no longer need to do this as the Component Creator will create a fully functioning component for you. Once you have named your component and added tables, views and fields you simply click “build component” and download a ready to install zipped up fully working component with a complete interface to add, edit and delete the data structure you have set up.

The most complete component builder ever made for Joomla
The tool is very easy to use and they have excellent customer service.
Any questions I have had have been answered on the same day.
For customer support you do have to pay though, but this is definitely worth it.
With a good previous analysis you can develop easy and extended components in minutes with a lot of tables and views.
The support is excellent and fast.
From now, we will always use Component Creator in our components
I created a relatively complicated component with 10+ tables/views, foreign keys, front end views, etc. and Component Creator allowed me to lay it out in under 30 minutes.
To top it all off, support is quick, friendly, and efficient.
It's incredible. Use it. Buy it. Spread the word!
I have come across a couple of little bugs which were fixed in the generator within a day. I just re-generate my code and all is fixed!!
They even helped me out with some special requests on how to extend the code that was automatically generated for me.
If you want to built a Joomla! component from scratch then you would be very stupid to not use this tool... it saves so much time.
