DataArchitect is a powerful tool that provides ERD capability like PowerDesigner as well as the ability to graphically reverse engineer, create and modify a database through ODBC and perform advanced SQL functions. For a single price you get all the supported platforms, Linux (32 and 64 bit), Solaris, Windows, HP-UX and Mac OS X. Discover what database professionals have known for years - that enterprise databases are designed with enterprise modeling tools. Why has this been a secret for so many? Why do so many labor with buckets full of error prone, undocumented, SQL? Well it seems no one has been able to pack the features of a quality data modeling tool into a product at an accessible price - not until now.Documentation features: Multiple Document Interface (MDI), Workspace/Project paradigm, generic diagramming with rectangles, ellipses, lines, ERD centric modeling (Physical Model), model validation, create Physical Model from existing database, complete documentation capabilities, print data dictionary, export diagram to a variety of graphic formats, export model to HTML, generate database "create scripts", embedded, connected, SQL Editor with syntax coloring and "complete word", show SQL results and export in a variety of formats, open file format (XML), ODBC browser dockwindow, panner dockwindow (birds eye view), intelligent output dockwindow (quickly jump to problem spots), available on; Linux, Solaris, OSX and Windows, generic database support via ODBC, database specific support for; MySQL, PostgreSQL, DB2, MSSQL, Gupta SQL Base, Interbase and Oracle assistance; implicit (navigation and pick lists), tool tips, online help using tkHelp, and html documentation.
