Visual Paradigm is pleased to announce that DB Visual Architect 2.0 for NetBeans has been released with numerous tailored modeling and usability guaranteed to satisfy your database application development.

What is DB Visual Architect for NetBeans?
DB Visual Architect for NetBeans (DBVA-NB) is an Object-Relational Mapping (ORM) tool acting as a bridge between object model, data model and relational database. DBVA-NB automates the mapping between them supporting the synchronization and generation of code and database, which reduces the development time. DBVA-NB not only supports the latest standards of Java notations, but also the latest and full UML 2.0 diagrams and notations
DBVA-NB generates a persistence layer between object and data models which reduces the risk of developing the persistence layer manually and helps to keep the database schema and the persistence layer consistent.

What's new in DBVA-NB 2.0?
* Enhanced Smart Resources
DBVA-NB provides Resource-Centric interface enabling the easy creation of class diagram, EJB diagram and Entity Relationship Diagram by using the valid editing resources listed around the diagram elements. Smart Resource becomes even smarter as the resources of similar nature are grouped together to minimize the number of visible resources simultaneously.

* EJB Diagram Support
Users are allowed to model their remote, distributed systems by EJB Diagram using Entity Bean, Session Bean and Message-Driven Bean.
