program to visually design a database?
« on: January 04, 2007, 06:43:25 AM »
Hi,

I remember seeing some visual program (mindmap - like) for linux to help designing databases (i.e., connecting the keys that are linked in different tables, etc).

I can't find anything on google though.

Do you know the name of a program like that (for windows if possible?)
Thanks

Care to elaborate mouser?   ;)  Any of these freeware?

I think FreeMind is cross platform compatible (I think it uses the Java VM), so that should run on the big L.

I'm not entirely sure, but I think that SQL Server 2005 Express has this capability:
