Data Model tools for DB2

Data Model tools for DB2

I have created a Database in DB2 and tables with relationships. I would like to create a ER diagram based on my database design in DB2. MS SQL has a facility to create ER diagrams from DB schema, but DB2 doesn't seem to have one, at least to my knowledge.

Any one know of any open source tools/facility within DB2 itself for this?

DbVisualizer can visualize (and much more) just about any database, provided that the relevant foreign keys have been defined.

Is it possible to serialize and deserialize a void pointer to & from a blob in a database?
DbVisualizer isn't open source, but there is a free edition of it (which isn't limited regarding visualization)..


You can use Visio and do a database reverse engineering.

I have done it and found it to be quite neat.. Reverse engineer an existing database into a database model.


TOAD for DB2 freeware does not have the ER diagramming feature enabled.

It is available only in the commercial version.

ER Studio is another (expensive) option.

Try Visio 2000 Enterprise edition if you can get one.

It is available on ebay for about $35.

Microsoft has moved the reverse engineering option in subsequent version of Visio to the expensive enterprise architect bundles.



Aqua Data Studio has an ER Modeling tool which will work with any RDBMS.

You can create, explore, detail, and modify database schemas to create fully editable and scriptable diagrams of database relationships and objects.
