Eclipse DTP

I spent some time with John Graham the lead at the Eclipse Data Tools Platform (DTP) at Eclipse last week. I learned quite a bit about DTP's current state and some future possibilities. Nexaweb uses it for design time binding of its rich application platform to SQL databases. DTP helps make it incredibly easy to select the target database using Eclipse GUI and then generate all the binding metadata.

I usually use Apache Derby or MySQL with it but can also use commercial rdbm's, such as SQL Server.
