Better Data Modeling: New and Improved Oracle SQL Developer Data Modeler (#SQLDevModeler)
Yup, my friends at Oracle have been hard at working enhancing what was already the best FREE data modeling tool out there.
They just released SDDM R4 EA3! You can go get it right now: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/developer-tools/datamodeler/downloads/datamodeler-4ea-downloads-1988443.html
As always there are both new features and bug fixes.
One of the coolest new features is the ability to show entity (or table) comments right on the diagram in the object. This will be very useful for enabling data model reviews with the business users.
Product manager Ashley tweeted and example the other day:
You can now display RDBMS Comments on the Diagram in SQL Developer Data Modeler EA3. http://t.co/UMOJeSd9Lh pic.twitter.com/wPVKiErITn
