There are those who think that data modeling is passé or no longer relevant. After all, data modeling theory is more than 30 years old and some data modeling tools have been around for up to 20 years. In this paper, Domain Expert Bert Scalzo discusses sev

Hello Raaj,could you specify database version of your model and describe type and counts of objects that you have in your model(Entitis - 500, Attribues-5000 etc.)Do you have 6.5.4 or 6.5.5 versionDo you have some custom packages
Need your suggestion for the below:Whenever I edit my data model by adding a table or by adding a column, I am adding the comments in the model properties -- Description tab. See attachedModel Properties - Description.JPG827105 15.7 KB
Toad Data Modeler enables you to rapidly deploy accurate changes to data structures across more than 20 different platforms. It allows you to construct logical and physical data models, compare and synchronize models, quickly generate complex SQL/DDL, create and modify scripts, as well as reverse and forward engineer both databases and data warehouse systems.
This is a brand new feature that addresses the needs of DBAs concerned about data privacy with the emergence of GDPR as well as some other significant enhancements around PL/SQL debugging and Oracle 18c support.

In new window change type of constraint to Foreign Key (layout will change). You can set name of the constraint, but if you leave it DB2 will name it automatically. In the Parent Table Information find for primary table (on the right side, you have preview of primary key columns).In This Table section select on which columns you define foreign key. Bear in mind that used columns in foreign key must have appropriate data type to primary key column data type. All columns from Primary Table must have equivalent column in foreign key constraint. At the bottom you can find additional options for foreign key behaviour when record in primary table will be deleted or updated.
SQL Developer Data Modeler is a data modeling and database design tool that provides an environment for capturing, modeling, managing, and exploiting metadata. It is based on the Zachman framework and the Object Management Group (OMG) MetaObject Facility (MOF) and Common Warehouse Metamodel (CMW) specifications.
Icons under the menus perform actions relevant to what is currently selected for display on the right side of the window, such as the logical model, a relational model, or a data flow diagram. For example, for a relational model the icons include New Table, New View, Split Table, Merge Tables, New FK Relation, and Generate DDL. To see the name of any icon, hover the pointer over the icon. The actions for the icons are also available from the Object menu.
The right side of the Data Modeler window has tabs and panes for objects that you select or open, as shown in the following figure, which displays information about a deliberately oversimplified relational model for library-related data (the model developed in Chapter 2, \"Tutorial: Data Modeling for a Small Database\").
Contains commands for performing the actions that are available for the currently selected diagram (for example, for the logical model, a relational model, or a data flow diagram). The icons are displayed under the menus and above the tabs for selecting diagrams to view.
RDBMS Site Administration: Lets you view RDBMS sites (names associated with supported types of databases), and to add your own names (aliases) for convenience in creating physical models. Displays the RDBMS Site Editor dialog box.
AutoLayout (relational and data flow diagrams): Rearranges the objects in the diagram to a layout that may be more meaningful and attractive. If you do not like the rearrangement, you can restore the previous layout by clicking Edit, then Undo AutoLayout.
SQL Developer Data Modeler works with one open database design, consisting of one logical model, optionally one or more relational models based on the logical model, and optionally one or more physical models based on each relational model. The database design can also include a data types model, and business information. To work on another database design, close the current design (click File, then Close), and create or import objects for the other database design.
When you save a database design, the structural information is stored in an XML file in a folder or directory that you specify, and subfolders or subdirectories are created as needed under it. The XML file contains pointers to information in these subfolders or subdirectories. For example, for a very basic design named my_db_model, the following hierarchy might be created starting at the folder or directory in which you created it:
SQL Developer Data Modeler supports supertypes and subtypes in its logical model, but it also provides the data types model, to be CWM compliant and to allow modeling of SQL99 structured types, which can be used in the logical model and in relational models as data types.
Both logical and relational models can use definitions from the data types model to specify the data type for attributes and columns or to define that a table (entity) is of a certain structured type.
All data type model objects (except logical types) are displayed in the object browser tree, but only structured type objects and their interrelations are represented graphically on data types diagrams.
When you are working with a complicated data types model, you may want to create subviews, with each subview describing only a section of that model. You can define several data types subviews for a single data types model, and you can assign a structured type to more than one subview. However, links (references) between two structured types are displayed on the complete data types model and only on subviews to which both types have been assigned.
There is no difference between performing changes in a subview or in the complete data types model. Any changes made are immediately reflected in the complete model and any relevant subviews. However, you can remove a structured type from a subview without deleting it from the data types model.
A user-defined distinct type is a data type derived from an existing logical type, defined in Types Administration dialog box. A distinct type shares its representation with an existing type (the source type), but is considered to be a separate and incompatible type.
Structured types are user defined data types have attributes and methods. They also can be part of a supertype and subtype inheritance hierarchy. A structured type can be defined based on a basic data type, a distinct type, another structured type, or a reference to structured type, or it can be defined as a collection type.
Table column or entity attributes can be defined as based on a structured type, a reference to structured type, a collection type, a distinct type, and basic data types. Type substitution can be defined for a column based on a structured type, and a scope table can be defined for a column based on a reference to a structured type.
Logical types are not actual data types, but names that can be associated with native types or with domains. The presupplied logical types include several from Oracle Multimedia (names starting with ORD); however, ORDIMAGE_SIGNATURE is deprecated and should not be used for new definitions.
The process model represents a functional area of an information structures system. The process model, embodied graphically in one or more data flow diagrams, is an analysis technique used to capture the flow of inputs through a system (or group of processes) to their resulting output. The model shows the flow of information through a system, which can be an existing system or a proposed system.
All necessary elements for data flow diagramming are supported in the Data Modeler process model: primitive processes, composite processes with unlimited levels of decomposition, reusable transformation tasks, triggering events, information stores, external agents, record structure for describing external data elements, source-target mapping of data elements, and CRUD (create, read, update, delete) dependencies between primitive process and data elements.
A data flow reflects the movement of single piece of data or logical collection of information. Flows describe the sequence of a data flow diagram. (For more information, see Section 188.8.131.52, \"Data Flow Diagrams\".)
An information store is a passive object that receives or stores information as entities and attributes in the data model. Ultimately, an information store corresponds with
