General description

DbView generates representations of databases.

Currently, DbView provides 3 representations:

  • A low detailed representation designed for GraphViz.
  • A moderately detailed representation designed for GraphViz.
  • A highly detailed representation designed for GraphViz.
DbView provides functionalities designed to ease the exploitation of large databases:

  • Possibility to zoom around a given set of tables.
  • Possibility to calculate the path(s) between two tables.
Also, if you work on a large number of databases, DbView includes a way to manage databases' profiles. Profiles act as shortcuts when you need to designate an input database. Instead of providing a long list of parameters, you only have to provide the name of a profile. This saves times and avoid errors.

Please note that DBVIEW is a command line tool.
