Subject Re: Borland Jbuilder finally adds ant support (at a price)

How about giving Middlegen and XDoclet a spin.  While it won't be as
"polished" as JBuilder code generation, and you may likely bleed a little
(on the bleeding edge, that is) to achieve exactly what you want, you'll
likely be thankful that you can build entity beans without an IDE mandatory.

I am very grateful for IDE's for my own productivity.... IDEA's refactoring
and automatic ways of taking care of "housekeeping" chores for me is
fantastic (like adding import statements and formatting code).  Being able
to easily find all places a particular method is used is very important to
me also.
