The site looks ok to me. I haven't found any issues.

I haven't used this yet, so this is just my understanding what it was
meant for. Let's say you have a number of modules in your application,
each having it's own set of tables. If you build an application from
these modules it might by useful to have all the generated classes in
one place. It can make the management easier.

Well, my own reason for sticking with JDK 1.4 is gone, so on my account
we can use JDK 1.5.

I guess it should be possible to keep support for all databases we can
get free access to. DB2 is available free of charge as DB2-Express-C so
we should at least check if it still works and what efforts would be
needed to support it before throwing the support away.
