JPA Buddy is a perfect tool for anyone working on data-centric applications. In fact, you can develop an entire CRUD application or a simple microservice by spending nearly zero time writing boilerplate code!

Great tool for working with databases and JPA/Hibernate. Very flexible and easy to use. The support from the company is great as well.

Neil Weightman

An extremely useful plugin for use with JPA/Hibernate. Saves a lot of time. The support system is also very good and provides quick feedback.

James Peters

Elegant bug tracking system, dynamic development atmosphere and cares about your feedback, this is an astonishing attribute because JPA Buddy doesn't have any competitors.

JPA is a very powerful technology, but can be somewhat complicated. Not only does this plugin simplify building entity models, but it educates the user about what JPA is all about. If could give it 10 stars I would. Great work, JPA Buddy Team!

Robert Hoeting

Been eye-balling the progress of this project for some time and I must say the development team has come a long way. This is an amazing plugin that makes migrations much easier to manage.

Christopher Caspanello

Generation entities from DB has never been so joyful! The most I love - I can gradually update entities without recreating entire JPA classes!

Karim Hasha

Today I got some more time to explore more about JPA Buddy and it’s mind blowing… Super productive…reverse engineering and Flyway/Liquibase migration generation is a life saver.
