Im giving idea a try and cant find the option JPA>Generate table from entities. I come from the eclipse world where I can generate entities or script with a couple of clicks and I find this is harder to do in intellij.

This is the persistence.xml I'm using:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<persistence version="2.1" xmlns=""; xmlns:xsi=""; xsi:schemaLocation="">;
<persistence-unit name="hmdb" transaction-type="RESOURCE_LOCAL">
<property name="javax.persistence.jdbc.url" value="jdbc:postgresql://localhost:5432/name"/>
<property name="javax.persistence.jdbc.user" value="appsetup"/>
<property name="javax.persistence.jdbc.password" value="--------"/>
<property name="javax.persistence.jdbc.driver" value="org.postgresql.Driver"/>
<property name="eclipselink.ddl-generation" value="create-tables"/>
<property name="eclipselink.ddl-generation.output-mode" value="sql-script"/>
<property name="eclipselink.application-location" value="/home/-------/Projects/-------/target" />
<property name="eclipselink.create-ddl-jdbc-file-name" value="create.sql" />

The location Im using to generate the files is the idea build dir. Isn't there a way to generate using the eclipselink that you download from the eclipselink page as a zip?
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
