I really like the reverse engineering features you have built into EA.  It really rocks.  

The one thing that I don't like is that it is filename dependent.  This means if you move the source file to a different directory or a class from one file to another, you must go through each class individually in your model to set the proper filename.

If don't fix up the filename's EA will add duplicate classes into your model.

I would like EA to look at the class name and if the filename doesn't match, prompt the user to ask if this is indeed the same class or not.

General Board / Re: CREATE INDEX DDL

Perhaps there is some way to have DDL events fire for particular statements and those interested can write handlers for the various statements they wish to output.  You could include some of these handlers for various DB's out of the box but leave it open and fully customizable for the end-user.

A reasonable way to do this is would be to use some scripting engine and enable the user to write some JScript or VB script to manipulate strings based on some input parameters passed in by EA.

General Board / Multiple Database DDL

Is the "Common Type" edit on the Database Datatypes dialog supposed to enable easy migration from one DB backend to another?  

If it is, I cannot seem to get this working as I've changed from one DB to another and the datatypes on the table attributes seem to just stick.

It seems to me that the ability to migrate between different DB's DDL would be a very nice feature.  Of course, there would have to be the ability to tweak the syntax in certain cases (like the previous index DDL post).

TIA
