Well, I have used Hibernate on the iSeries and am a Synon/2E expert, but I
have never had occasion to use Hibernate at a Synon site. I will look at the
manual referenced at http://synon2hbm.sourceforge.net/synon2hbmWebsite/ and
see if I can help you.

As for using Field Descriptions in place of the six character field names,
this ought to be possible because the Descriptions are generated from the
Field Names in the Model which are unique: however, you would probably have
to modify the Hibernate generator to look at the 'LABEL ON' statements in
the 2E-generated SQL Source. Naturally, if you are reverse-engineering the
RPG Code also, you'd have to modify the generated SQL Prepared Statements.

Reverse engineering Synon Applications to Java is not for the faint
hearted - good luck!

Subject: Using Hibernate code generator with Synon model

I am using Hibernate Eclipse plugin to reverse engineer tables/files, in
Synon model, to Java code. However, the code generator, as expected , is
using the obscure synon field names to generate member variable names
(and their getter/setter methods). Is there a way to make Hibernate look
at field descriptions instead?

I found references to synon2hbm on Hibernate site, but couldn't find
Eclipse plug-in. Can somebody who has used Hibernate with Synon model
give some pointers on how they generated POJOs from Synon using
Hibernate code generator? Let me know if you need more details. Thanks.
