    Initially I thought this was a very austere, clunky and flakey product. I was wrong. Yes, the UI is basic and I still cant get the netbeans plugin to work BUT, the took is overall very robust, I have used it a few times and the simple UI is starting to grow on me. The DB compare and other more adance functions dont seem to work all the time but the basic product and DDL generation is great. Thanks all, a good tool, I really do hope you carry on with it and knock off a few of its rough edges.
