I have a question about Freemarker, not sure this is right place to post....

I try to use Freemarker to do a code generation. I am a new to this. Here is the coding, but it doesn't work, it complains

freemarker.core.InvalidReferenceException: Expression is undefined on line 3, column 19 in src/example.ftl.

Could you please tell me the reason ?

Here is the java code and template file.

BTW, as a software engineer, which is better tool to write code generation ?

It isn't. I've moved this to a more appropriate location.

The class Field should be public, which means it needs to be in its own source file.
I agree. Here's the link:
