    • Enable specific vendor extensions based on provider selection in the beginning
    • Need to be able to extend/enable new validation; think more on changing rules via extension

    • Ensure Wizards are extensible

      • Warn when defaults will produce DDL with names too big
      • Warn when user provided data model names too big


  • How can we configure a Run Configish thing for boot JPA apps for specific providers?
