Using DeZign for Databases, you build a logical model of the business data in the form of a graphical Entity-Relationship Diagram (ERD). Each entity is comprised of attributes which describe it, and entities are linked through relations. Besides full support for ER-modeling DeZign for Databases also allows you to use "physical elements" like constraints and default values.
You use point-and-click techniques to add entities to the diagram and to create relations between them. Your ideas are transformed into a graphical diagram. Independent of the databasetype, you define your attributes, entities, relationships and domains.
Generate your database schemas
DeZign for Databases automatically generates database schemas, ms access databases, dBase and Paradox databases out of your Entity-Relationship Diagram. You can use the same diagram to generate database schemas for multiple target DBMS's.
Everything works! I have been using D4DB 3.4 with Mandriva 2006/2007 for full time production work for 3 years with zero limitations! Could not be happier with the product or the wine operation.
What does not
Nothing does not work.
What was not tested
This is full time production system and all features are used so nothing has escaped testing.
I also just finished installation of newly released Dezign for Databases V5.0.1 with Mandriva 2006 / wine 0.9.6 and it was flawless so far. This will become my new production system so will add a page soon for it.
