Data Structures Visual Editor

New: v1.1 is out!
download now

Build around JDBC and XML, this tool allows you to maintain visual repesentations of a database's layout, edit table's data, generate code to bind objects to tables, and export and import data in XML format to easely move data from one database to another.

Uses our core library ('m16e.tools') and it's published under the GPL licence (Free Software)..

It allows you to connect to any (we hope) DBMS and visualy manipulate it's layout and content. So far, it's known to work with DB2, Oracle, PostgresSQL, PointBase, SQL Server and Sybase. See the User's Guide for further details.

Note: database reverse engeneering only works with PostgreSQL... perhaps you can help us getting it to work with other DBMS?
