This illustration shows how TopLink Workbench is used to create a TopLink project. You use your IDE and modeling tools to create and generate Java source files and compile them into Java classes. You import your Java classes and your data source (schema) information into TopLink Workbench and use its graphical features to map between your object and relational models and to configure many of the TopLink Foundation Library features. You then export your project XML from TopLink Workbench. At any time, you can refresh TopLink Workbench with changes to your Java classes or data source and reexport your project XML.
