Love SchemaSpy. It's amazingly easy to configure and made it work within 30 minutes with development and production db. Does the job, it meant for, very well...Hats off. Keep the open source spirit alive...

I use the project several times a day. We have a multt TB SQL Server db w/1700 tables and over a hundred views. Its a beast, evolved over 10 years, no DTD, etc. And I'm new. Its the only sane way to explore the schema and has been a life saver coming up to speed here. Salut!

An excellent tool and one that I wish I'd found years earlier. I wrote a batch file to invoke it for a PostgreSQL schema provided on the command line:

I got it to work under Ubuntu 9.10 with postgresql 8.4, I need to create this element : information_schema._pg_keypositions()

I found the solution here :

I need this file too : postgresql-8.0-312.jdbc3.jar (available here :

Thanks for this great piece of software

Re: Fantastic database mapping tool!
Post the details of the failure in the help forum ( and we should be able to figure it out.

Re: Fantastic database mapping tool!
where are the debugging notes for Jdbc -cp jar file issues?

I have a successful command line into the PostgreSql instance but running this with the command line will not invoke without error. Any ideas?

java -jar schemaSpy.jar -t pgsql -db mydb -host localhost -port 6432 -u user -p password -o postgresql_schema

I even tried adding the -s name as 'public' and no luck either.
