Hello Srivinas, what tooling do you recommend to use with Hibernate in the migration of a very de-normalized legacy system? The legacy system consists of 800+ tables, views and indices. And, the migration will have to happen in real-time against the Prod. database. I have considered using Talend or the Eclipse Middlegen plugin. There are other ETL tools in cyberspace: but I am not sure how well most ETL tools work with Hibernate. Please advise, David.

Hi Srinivas,

I second David's question - would like to know more about automated tooling to help create code from DB schema. As you know, the devil is in the details - are there frameworks that help the conversion, yet allow us to alter the code generation for the classes methods. For example, we would like to use HNDate as opposed to Date when db has datetime column....
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
