The columns *have* "not null" set because of programming language I used witch don't deal well with nulls. Also all columns have default value set.
Even I will migrate to java will be a period in witch the old and the new  client will access the database in same time.
The idea is I have to deal with 255 tables witch have 4552 columns. And growing. This is why the first option it is not the best solution. 
What I want is, when I add a table, a column or I change it, to easily regenerate domain all domain objects.
The second option I think is the best. 
I thought previously to use ReverseEngineeringStrategy to remove table prefix. But I did not know about columnToMetaAttributes. This is very helpful. I tried to put a dummy hardcoded value for each field and it work. What I have to do is to extract the default value from the database. 
I know the table, I know the field I will connect to database and extract the default value.
The question is: it is somehow possible to get the database connection from "hibernate console configuration" instead of create a new one ?  I think this will speed-up the reveng process.

Your response was very helpful.
Thank You very much,
