Projects / DB Visual ARCHITECT


DB Visual Architect (DBVA) is a powerful tool that provides support for Object Relational Mapping (ORM) and Entity Relationship Diagrams (ERD), which assist with realizing UML designs as relational database implementations. By drawing a class diagram for the system, you can generate the required database tables and persistent source code for database manipulation. It can also be used with existing software.
