Datanamic Solutions B.V. today announced DeZign for Databases V4.0, a significant upgrade to its popular database design and modeling product. This new release offers data model to database synchronization, a utility to compare data models, integrated reverse engineering utilities with native database connections and configurable HTML, MS Word and PDF reports.
DeZign for Databases is a database modeling and design tool with an intuitive visual interface that allows you to accurately design, create and maintain your database. It provides full support for ER-modeling (Entity-Relationship) techniques and supports most popular SQL and desktop databases.
New features in version 4.0 include:
Data model to database synchronization. You can update a database from a data model. DeZign for Databases V4 allows you to apply design changes made to your data model to a database. DeZign for Databases compares differences between two versions of your data model and generates intelligent alteration code.
Integrated reverse engineering support. DeZign for Databases V4 now allows you to reverse engineer complete databases with a direct native connection. A direct connection to import databases directly is available for Oracle, MySQL, InterBase, Firebird, MS SQL Server, MS Access, Paradox, dBase, FoxPro, DBISAM, Clipper and NexusDB. You can also reverse engineer existing databases through SQL scripts with the improved SQL script analyzer.
Grid-based editing. New grid-based editors for attributes, indexes, table constraints, domains, sequences, procedures and views. The grid view provides a convenient means for viewing and editing database object properties.
IDEF1X modeling notation support. In addition to Crow's Feet, the industry standard design notation IDEF1X is supported in DeZign for Databases V4. Each subdiagram can use its own notation: Relational/Crow's Feet or IDEF1X.
Compare data model versions utility. DeZign for Databases V4 introduces a utility to compare two versions of your data model. You can examine the differences in a differences browser and export an overview of the differences to a HTML file.
Enhanced diagramming tools. Pan around a diagram with the Hand tool and group entities or other diagram objects by using the new groupbox object.
Configurable HTML, PDF and MS Word reports. DeZign for Databases V4 now allows users to configure which elements to include or to exclude when generating data model reports. Instead of generating standard reports, users now have a great deal of control over the content and structure of their reports.
