JDeveloper UML Database Modeling Plugin

PRESS RELEASE - Stella Au writes "Visual Paradigm Smart Development Environment 3.0 for JDeveloper (SDE-JD) is a plug-in for Oracle JDeveloper supporting UML modeling. By providing the facilities of textual analysis, a series of UML diagrams, domain analysis, use case modeling, code generation and code reverse engineering, SDE-JD becomes an all-in-one solution for model-driven development using JDeveloper. Its UML diagrams truly conform to the latest UML 2.0 notations.

SDE-JD also provides Object-Relational Mapping (ORM) and EJB Development features by keeping the object model, data model and relational models in sync, generating the database and Java code including POJO class and Enterprise JavaBeans for software development. Hence, it reduces the development time significantly.

Visual Paradigm is pleased to announce that Smart Development Environment (SDE) 3.0 for JDeveloper has been released which has numerous enhancements with new features.

What's new in SDE-JD 3.0?

Enhanced Smart Resources – Resource-Centric interface enables the valid editing resources listed around the diagram elements which in turn results in the easy creation of UML diagram by using a few mouse clicks. Smart Resource becomes even smarter by grouping resources of similar nature together to minimize the number of visible resources simultaneously.

Enhanced XMI Import/Export to support UML 2.0 – The import and export of XMI is enhanced to support XMI 1.2, UML 2.0 compliant model and diagrams can be imported and exported to/from SDE.

Use Case Details Editor – SDE-JD 3.0 provides an all-in-one environment for use case modeling, including general model specification, multiple use case description with rich-text editing, sub-diagrams manipulation and preview.

Customizable SQL –SDE-JD generates ready-to-use SQL statements regarding to the data model defined in the entity relationship diagram which may not tailor your needs. You are allowed to customize the SQL statements and override the generated SQL statements whenever you want to.

Advanced ORM Features – SDE-JD promotes mapping one class to multiple tables which optimizes the size of database and minimizes the number of generated classes for system implementation.

EJB Diagram Support - EJB diagram is provided for user to model their EJB systems so as to support the generation of Enterprise JavaBeans for EJB development.

EJB Code Generation and Deployment – SDE-JD simplifies the powerful but complicated EJB development by generating beans based on the EJB model defined by user.
