Hello Tim,
I build a tool to produce data dictionaries for java software product of my
company at a time. The jdt2famix <https://github.com/girba/jdt2famix>
parser was used to produce famix files (.mse), Moose loaded into Squeak by
loading mcz's one by one,  did not used Metacello. I did not used the UI
provided by Moose, I used Ned Konz's Connectors instead.
In order to document the source System our architects needed an ability to
create 'Domain models' to visualize essential elements in Java source code.
Architects used the tool produce a number of UML-like structure diagrams,
one diagram per one Squeak project, Squeak projects were arranged as to
convey information in the suitable way. It was possible to produce database
diagrams (Squeak parsed Hybernate annotations and produced DB model from
java source) and diagrams to visualize configuration specific to the
customer (configurations stored in xml files).  If database tables/columns
had no comments of java entity/fields were associated with each column.
Taken as a whole diagrams in the Squeak and data dictionary helped Data
Warehouse team to understand the source data and was part of the java
product documentation.
