There's a difference between online code generation and simply code generation though. Generating entities/ORM from a schema (re: wood_brian's link) has been done to various degrees of success for ages.
I think that it will continue to occur for a while since it'll continue to be painful and tedious for a while. If anything, it will go away if/when NoSQL sort of things win (I'm not convinced that will occur).
Providing such mechanisms via a service is... kinda dumb and not really helpful.

Trying to make money off of code generation is a losing proposition, regardless of business model.

Personally, I see code generation of this kind as basically the same thing as starting a stand in the local shopping mall food court that offers to microwave anything you bring them for a modest fee.
You'd never spend money on a mall-microwave-stand, and you'd never spend money on a code generation service.
