|Best tooling to replace Texo [message #1854413]

I use Texo for quite some time to generate JPA classes for UML class models.
It works very well, but unfortunately seems not to be maintained anymore. For example, it can not be installed in recent Eclipse editions, so it requires an old Eclipse install to get it up-and-running. This clumsy, and a pity, because Texo is an excellent tool.
A small product survey by me revealed not an equivalent (commercial) product with similar functionality as Texo. Most products do not include a graphical editor, generate poor code (e.g. bidirectional relationships are not supported), offer only limited control of the code generation process and/or do not allow to add code to the generated code (that will not be overwritten during the next generation process).
Tools I looked at are Jeddict, StarUML/Rebel and JPA-Buddy, but none of them satisfied my requirements completely:
- graphical editor for the class modelling
- full support of JPA 2.1
- generation of high quality code, e.g. correct and safe management of bidirectional relationships
- fine grained control of the generation process
- generation of Jackson annotations, e.g. @JsonSubtype, etc. (nice to have)
- are there suggestions for suitable tooling (commercial software is acceptable for us, as long as it fits the requirements)
- did someone manage to build Texo recently? I have checked out the source code, but the build system (buckminster) is unfamiliar to me and seems also to be end-of-live.
Thanks for your answers.
