The poster will give you a visual notion of the JPA Diagram Editor - a graphical tool based on the Graphiti framework. This editor allows JPA developers to easily create and edit business data models as diagrams using Eclipse IDE. The JPA Diagram Editor is proposed for contribution as a subproject of the WTP Incubator project. Its final goal is to get into the Dali JPA Tools project.
You can see a short demo of the JPA Diagram Editor here.
Stefan Dimov has been with SAP since 2005. For the last three years he has been working in the area of SAP NetWeaver Developer Studio (the SAP’s IDE, which is based on the Eclipse IDE), and is particularly responsible for the Dali Java Persistence Tools plug-ins (developed by SAP for NWDS). He came up with the JPA editor idea two years ago and at first it was implemented as a SAP proprietary technolgy. Now SAP is going to provide it to the Eclipse community.
