In an entity relationship diagram, the basic elements are:
Default values can be in the Project settings. These options are of course dependent on the target platform, so the options for a MongoDB project will be different from the options for PostgreSQL or MySQL projects.
When it comes to forward engineering in Moon Modeler, it’s about generating the resulting script for the selected target platform.
In the case of relational databases such as PostgreSQL, MariaDB, MySQL or SQLite, it is the resulting SQL script. For MongoDB it is possible to generate a schema validation script and for platforms like Mongoose or GraphQL it is schema definition scripts.… Read the rest
Reverse engineering means retrieving information about the database structure. It is about finding out what objects exist in the database, such as tables, columns, views, procedures, etc., and what relationships exist between these objects. Based on this information, it is possible to draw an ER diagram in which the relationships can be clearly displayed.… Read the rest
