No replies

Visual Paradigm DB Visual ARCHITECT for JBuilder (DBVA-JB) is a plug-in for JBuilder which supports full-featured Object-Relational Mapping (ORM).

DBVA-JB automates the mapping between object model, data model and relational database, generates code and database schema according to the object model and data model defined in the class diagram, EJB diagram and entity relationship diagram. DBVA-JB supports the latest and full UML 2.0 diagrams and notations for visual modeling and also the standards of Java notations for generating code.

In order to fully support ORM, DBVA-JB generates a reliable and high-performance persistence layer between object and relational models which reduces the risk of developing it manually.

Moreover, DBVA-JB supports EJB development extensively by providing the EJB diagram for modeling the EJB system, automating Entity Bean to Database mapping and generating Enterprise JavaBeans and mapping layer.
Visual Paradigm is pleased to announce that DB Visual ARCHITECT 2.0 for JBuilder has been released with numerous modeling and usability enhancement guaranteed to satisfy your database application development.

What's new in DBVA 2.0 for JBuilder?

Mapping One Class to Multiple Tables – As appending a new column to an existing database table is risky, DBVA-JB promotes the idea of Partial Table which optimizes the size of database. Mapping one class to multiple partial tables minimizes the number of generated classes for system implementation.

Enhanced Smart Resources – DBVA-JB adopts Resource-Centric interface which provides the valid editing resources listed around the diagram elements allowing you to create the class diagram, EJB diagram and Entity Relationship Diagram easily. In version 2.0, similar natured resources are grouped so as to minimize the number of visible resources simultaneously and make the Smart Resource smarter.

Customizable SQL - DBVA-JB generates SQL statements to manipulate the database, users may find it not applicable to his/her needs; and hence, customizations of the SQL statements and overriding the generated SQL statements are allowed.

EJB Diagram Support – EJB diagram is provided to model the EJB systems. Users can model their remote, distributed systems using Entity Bean, Session Bean and Message-Driven Bean.

EJB Code Generation and Deployment - DBVA-JB simplifies the powerful but complicated EJB development by generating beans based on the EJB model defined in the EJB diagram. DBVA-JB also provides a deployment facility to EJB application.

Enhanced Reverse Engineering a Database – Reverse engineering a database feature is enhanced from not only transforming an existing database into entity relational model and POJO model, but also transforming an existing database into Enterprise JavaBeans model and Enterprise JavaBeans.

Support of Multiple Application Servers for EJB application – EJB development is available for being deployed to different application servers, such as JBoss, IBM WebSphere, BEA WebLogic, Oracle and JOnAs.
