Hi Stuart,

Including Java (or other) language binding into this UML/XSD/Java/RDBMS/? tool
integration is definitely part of my plan.  This was the focus of my XML 2001
conference plenary talk on this topic.  See that paper on my web site.

I've been watching the slow progress of the JAXB specs, but have not looked at
the EJB persistence.  I'll check it out.  I have prototyped the integration of
Castor Java code generation via the UML -> XSD -> Java generation path.
