  2. It's really the greatest O/R tools I have ever seen(from their demo and tour)!

    I have tried such kinds of tools from Sun, Oracle(BC4J), VisualCafe and other vendors, but their tools are too complex, too many self-defined files combined, which finally let me give them up.

    But I can not find the files list generated by TierDeveloper Java edition, can anyone provide it?

  3. Well...After that the TierDeveloper Java Professional Edition is installed, you can view the sample code (located in /Samples/GeneratedCode folder under product installation path) that's generated using TierDeveloper. Also you can open one of the Sample project (located in /Samples/Projects folder) to generate the code.

    Hope this helps.


  4. Open source O/R mapping projects[ Go to top ]

    Open source Object-relational mapping tools for Java:


    Castor JDO


    JBoss JAWS project (JBossCMP)

    Jakarta Torque

    Java DAO (Data Access Objects)

  5. not to forget hibernate, which I prefer after looking at quite a lot of the others.
  6. the demo looks nice, but am i wrong or does this
    product only supports 3 databases at this point?
    Oracle, db2, mssql...

    I just wanted to test this animal and then this ugly
    select box with 3 defined databases... doh!

    My energy to install one of those megadatabases just
    to testdrive the product is very low.
  7. You might want to look at 'actualbase'

  8. Open source O/R mapping projects[ Go to top ]

    ObjectBridge, Castor JDO, JORM etc etc

    And how many of these worthwhile products also run with .NET?

  9. Open source O/R mapping projects[ Go to top ]

    Zero. For now. The Apache one might in the future, I guessing based on current projects or things I'm reading.

    If any come a available the majority (99.999% ?) won't be at the same price point.
  10. Wow..
    the demo looks really great..
  11. The online Demo looks neat , but where is the generated code ? .
    How does the generated code look ?...esp for EJBs . Does it create DAOs or Entity Beans ?
    Also the Evaluation Copy can only create code against the provided test db !! ..that sucks !

  12. This what you call evaluation?

    I downloaded the profession edtion, I just want to connect it to a database of our own and generate some testing code, but found with this evaluation copy I can never achieve it.
    It wasted me 2 hours.

    If you guys really wanna ppl to throw money on you, you should at least let them know what they will get for their lovely dollars.
