DB Visual ARCHITECT 6.2 Release Notes

Release Date: May 3, 2011

Import Visio ERD

Import your ERD drew in Microsoft Visio into DB-VA. After that, carry on with data modeling within DB-VA's ERD tool. Further to ERD editing, DB-VA enables you to model and maintain transitions between logical, conceptual and physical ERDs.

Reuse glossary terms between projects

Define and manage glossary terms in base project and reuse them in all dependent project.

Model refactoring

Move project data (i.e. model elements/diagrams) from current to dependent project through model refactoring. This ease the sharing of common project data, improves readability as well as to reduce complexity of project. A typical usage is to refactor potential library packages and classes to dependent project, to make it possible to share across different current projects.

Configure diagram hotkey

Specify hotkey for creating diagram elements (e.g. class) on diagram. This make it possible to create shape in quick. E.g. press "C" to create a class.

Highlight glossary term

Glossary terms are highlighted in shape captions and documentations. You can click on a term to popup the glossary to read its definition.
