Spring Roo database reverse engineering

This post is about Database Reverse Enigneering (DBRE) in Spring Roo 1.0.x only!

For DBRE in Roo 1.1.x and 1.2.x have a look at this post.


Tom Chikoore has written a nice tutorial on how to do database reverse engineering with the current Spring Roo version (1.0.x family). Having database reverse engineering capabilities is one of the most requested features for Roo right now (see Jira Issue), and will hopefully be implemented in Roo 1.1. But until then the trick by Tom is quite useful to prototype applications with Roo and an existing database. Thanks to Tom for the excellent work.
