    This scares me quite abit. ;) I'll be going through many changes in my DB before I'm done...

    I have a primary key set as an integer. The modeler doesn't seem to recognize it as it sets it's
    type to 'Other'. I can manually change it back to integer in the drop-down list.

    I have lots of data stored in XML that I would like to import into the database.
    I guess I could write it myself. Just seeing if it was a feature. I think you'll find a
    feature like that in Hibernate and Castor.
