Portable ORM Designer Publisher's description
from Inventic s.r.o.
Visualize, manage and define your database model through your ORM framework language
ORM Designer is a visual database designing tool with full support of ORM frameworks. ORM Designer was created to replace kilobytes of text definitions with easy-to-use graphical interface.
Thanks to a very flexible design almost any ORM framework with definitions stored in a markup language can be fully supported. Enjoy creating database models fast, comfortable and error free.
Give ORM Designer a try to see what it's all about!
Here are some key features of "Portable ORM Designer":
User Interface Features:
В· ORM framework support is not the only strength of ORM Designer. It's built on a well designed user interface which makes creating models fun. We focused on clear and well-arranged data model visualization and easy navigation through models with tens of tables. That all is wrapped in modern user interface. To reduce the possibility of error we added transparent consistency checking.
В· ORM Designer has some features known from IDEs (Integrated Development Environments). Developers will be familiar with a project tree. It's a tree representation of database model with regions, columns, indexes and foreign keys. Project tree is not only another visualization of database model. it can be used to run all model management tasks. ORM Designer also has advanced searching tools which are able to search through relations, columns, regions and tables. Database model can be printed in a predefined zoom level or to fit model to a number of papers.
Files and Serialization:
В· ORM Designer is based on a very flexible XML document which is used to store data model definitions and visualization data. Thanks to the open XML format it is very easy to extend ORM Designer with another features, customize it for a new ORM framework or use stored data for post processing tasks. ORM Designer can be configured to save all definitions into one file or to use separate files for each module and also to keep data definitions and visualization data in separate files. ORM Designer contains advanced merging which means you can import parts of other projects or ORM definitions into an existing ORM Designer project.
В· Any framework with its definitions stored in a markup language (XML or YAML) or another structured document might be fully supported by ORM Designer. ORM Designer can read from and write into native ORM framework format. ORM framework specific features like inheritance, translatable tables, cascading deletes, behaviours etc. can be defined through attributes on each data model object. Also column types can be defined for each ORM framework. More attributes can be extended with user defined definitions.
Custom Object Properties:
В· ORM framework support in ORM Designer is defined in human readable XML documents. All database model objects properties can be customized for ORM framework. Object properties can have simple values of scalar types. For example boolean values (set column as primary key or auto increment) or numbers (string length). ORM frameworks extend regular databases with advanced features: versioning, translatable tables, application cascade deletes, inheritance etc. ORM Designer contains complex object properties. You can select columns to be translated, or tables to be versioned.
В· ORM Designer has support for best programming practicies in web projects. You can benefit from separating database model into multiple files which is useful for plugins or modules. Visualization data are related to a module. Position of tables, relations and relation visualization is stored into module file and used once imported into other project. ORM framework definitions exported from ORM Designer are unified and can be compared on commit for changes. Another great feature you would appreciate if using versioning systems (Subversion, CVS etc.) is separation of database model definitions and visualization. When comparing on commit, you can check only for changes in database model.
