A picture is worth a thousand words. Too bad I can't embed one in this forum post. Please have a look at this screen capture
I threw up on imageshack.
I'm not a long time user of OpenAccess. I just installed it a few days ago. I may very well be doing something wrong. I'm trying to create classes using the reverse engineering wizard for three tables. As shown in the screen cap, I have the phones table, the sipaccounts table, and the phonetoaccount table that joins them together. I'm pretty sure I understand how to use the wizard to create the classes. I just think the wizard is failing to do something that it should.
Shouldn't I be able to type a column name in the "Field to Column Mapping" section and have it generate some mapping xml? Also, shouldn't what I type in there *stay put* and be there when I come back into the wizard? I can enter the appropriate mapping information, click Generate & Save Config, and the wizard regenerates the class files and closes. When I go back into the wizard, the "Field to Column Mapping" information is gone.
I was able to work around this by manually editing the mapping xml, but I would like to confirm whether I am correct in assuming this is where and how the mapping information needs to be set.
Also, the following forum post suggests the same problem, but was never followed through to resolution.
