Supported Database, JDBC Drivers and .NET Drivers

Visual Paradigm provides a visual modeling environment for modeling software systems. By connecting a relational database to Visual Paradigm, Visual Paradigm can automate the mapping between database design (ER model) and relational database. Visual Paradigm supports the most common relational databases, including Oracle, DB2, Microsoft SQL Server, Sybase Adaptive Server Enterprise, Sybase SQL Anywhere, MySQL, HSQLDB, Cloudscape/Derby and PostgreSQL. Their relative JDBC Drivers and .NET Drivers are listed in the following tables.

In order to connect to any of the supported database, the relative JDBC and .NET Drivers are required for configuring the database connection. All of the required JDBC and .Net Drivers are not bundled with Visual Paradigm. Yet, you can get the driver files by using the automatic download function provided, or to have them manually downloaded.

Table shows the supported DBMS and their corresponding JDBC Drivers.
