DB to EJB3 plugin request

Does anyone have a plan for a plugin that will allow creation of an EJB3
entity bean from a DB table?  We have a ton of tables that we use and
the DB guys use adfa_aefa_sefa for the table names.  I would love to
have a plugin that let's me browse to a table, select the fields to
include (even suggest java names for the fields), then create the bean
for me.

Maybe we can get a few guys together to create it.  I know nothing about
the plugin API or Swing, but know my way around JDBC and can write
helper methods (table/column to java name, etc).

Anybody think this would be useful?

You might want to look at Cayenne - the Cayenne Modeler better said.
At the moment has no support for EJB 3 but it will have in the upcoming version.

And the JPA:

IMHO for this step, there's not need to have IDE integration as for Cayenne, the modeler works
very well as an external tool too.
