Reverse engineering video

We have added a new video to our YouTube channel that explains how to automatically create an OpenXava application from an existing MySQL database.

Generate application from database

Although the video uses a MySQL database as an example, the steps can be applied seamlessly to any other database, such as MS SQL Server, Oracle, DB2, PostgreSQL, Informix, AS/400, etc.

In this case, we use Eclipse with the Dali plugin to generate OpenXava entities from tables, although there are other reverse engineering tools available, such as JPA Buddy or Hibernate Tools.

We invite you to follow the video and try applying it with any of your databases.
