Cameo Data Modeler Plugin 16.8 

Introduction Installation More information and support



Cameo Data Modeler plugin enables you to draw entity-relationship diagrams (using "crow's foot" notation). This is a full-featured variant of ER diagram (including extended entity-relationship concepts - like generalization), providing a spectrum of capabilities for logical data modeling. Additionally, this plugin provides enhancements for DDL diagrams - crow's foot notation for relationships and easy multiplicity specification.

To try the Cameo Data Modeler plugin, go to the Help menu and select the Resource/Plugin Manager to see the list of available plugins. Select the Cameo Data Modeler Plugin to download and install.

NOTE: The Cameo Data Modeler plugin is a separately purchasable add-on for MagicDraw application (Standard, Professional, and Architect editions) and free for MagicDraw Enterprise edition.
The Cameo Data Modeler plugin replaces previous (free) Data Modeling Notations plugin, which had support for business entity-relationship diagram - a simplified variant of entity-relationship diagram, usable for high level, abstract, domain data modeling.
