Introduction


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

This plugin provides SQL database modeling / diagramming and DDL script generation / reverse features as well. It supports 11 flavors of databases (including Standard SQL, Oracle, DB2, Microsoft SQL Server, MySQL, PostgreSQL), has separate type libraries for them, carries additional modeling extensions for Oracle databases and provides transformations from / to plain UML models as well as  from ER models. Cameo Data Modeler plugin has XML schema modeling / diagramming and schema file (*.xsd) generation / reversing features, and transformations from / to plain UML models can be performed.

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