Thank you Max, for the reply.

  | If you by selective mean generate from a subset of the current entities then that is not available yet. 

I meant generation of only entities/components without their views. Did you meant the same?
a. To restrict only view generation for some components/Entities. Instead of deleting each time.
b. Where I need only reflect modification in entities/components.
c. For SQL2000 when selecting the subset [new/modified tables] the system tables are also picked-up.

  | No - what is your usecase if you have the feature from above ?   

No. It needs an elaboration. Jboss Tools the options are available to create new Seam Entity/Action/Form. 
However there is no option to use existing entity/component to create the view. If wrong please correct.

3. I was expecting as seam-modules for seam-project, similary as NetBeans has modules for java projects. However, how I need to proceed.

Need: The way I do/work is, create an Entity with required mappings/associations. Forward engg with hibernate to create tables. 
	And now expecting to generate only views with exisitng Entities/Components. 
Problem: If I use the 'seam-gen' the mappings/associations are modified to defaults. 
Benefits: No need to bother about database related data-types, fiddle with relationships. All need to take is how my Entity should be 
	and required views for it.
If there is a alternate way to do this using exisitng option, please guide. Thank you for your patience.
