Thanks, Gerard.
It definitely makes sense. There is no hard separation, the boundaries between code and data are blurry. We can find many examples (config files, SQL, etc) that can be seen as both.
But most of all I want to give an idea that IaC “code” should not be treated same way as Java.

I get that, but that's pretty trivial I think. And it's find to add functions, for example to get random passwords, in IaC. While Java with Spring Boot can be pretty declarative.
