Hi

I am using the community edition of intelli-j and was hoping to find a way or plugin to build my JPA entities based of an existing schema.
Is this possible at all?

Thanks

I'm not sure about IntelliJ plugins, but the OpenJPA system has a set of batch utilities that can scan a schema and generate Java class definition files. I've used it many times to adopt pre-existing databases for JPA. In fact even before JPA, since they were originally part of Kodo JDO, which is one of JPA's ancestors.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
