    CM: Keep original field order

                     Key: CAY-910
                     URL: https://issues.apache.org/cayenne/browse/CAY-910
                 Project: Cayenne
              Issue Type: Bug
              Components: CayenneModeler GUI
        Affects Versions: 1.2 [STABLE], 2.0 [STABLE], 3.0
                Reporter: Thomas Bernhard
                Assignee: Andrus Adamchik

    Please keep the original order of fields on reverse engineering in Cayenne Modeler.

    It looks like some sort of alphabetical sorting is done on reverse engineering, without offering the user the possibility *not* to sort. I think this is a bug - most professional DB tools respect this original order.

    The user defined order of fields is very important, cause in many companies there are special code conventions and practices regarding this ordering and field naming. CM's "sorting" makes the work a pain - please fix this problem.

    I understand that in some cases such a "sorting" behaviour is wished, but I think that "sorting" should be a separate feature and it shouldn't be active by default. Of course another possibility would be to add a setting to CM Preferences : "Sort fileds", but that would be more work.
