Visual Schema is an ER Diagram creating tool that uses SQL files as a starting point.
The software supports various file formats of the SQL dialect such as Oracle, MSSQL, MySQL and MS Access. The resulting diagram can also be saved under various extensions, such as PNG, JPG, GIF and PostScript.
Visual Schema is an easy to use tool, with an intuitive interface, transforming the chore of creating a diagram in a simple step-by-step process.
The software prompts you to choose the type of Database used (MSSQL, Oracle, MySQL, MS Access, etc) and then select the file from your directories. You can also input the diagram title from the same window and select the output file format desired.
The app enables you to customize the format of the diagram by offering you several options (Full, Table name only, Table name with PK), picking out the font style, size and name. While not many, the customizing options are enough to satisfy the basic common needs.
The resulting diagrams look clean and well organized, despite the high number of tables that resulted from some files.
All in all, Visual Schema is a nice and efficient piece of software that looks to illustrate databases as cleanly as possible. The software cuts down the time needed to create such a diagram to the minimum and the resulted illustration look efficient.
