I am working on a project whose DB2 is on AS/400. Is there reverse engineering tools particularly open source like eclipse plugin which can provide ER diagram generation for such database?

Please advice

There's an open-source tool called SchemaSpy that I have found to be very useful. It can create an entire interactive website for the schema.

It's a Java application using JDBC, so you can do things like run the app on a Windows machine and analyze an AS/400 or even z/OS database as long as you have JDBC drivers.

I think you can find SchemaSpy on If not, Google.

An IDE is no substitute for an Intelligent Developer.
I agree. Here's the link:
