Hi,

I am not sure whether this is a right forum.
But I am looking for a preferably java tool that can be used to search on the database.

Basically what I am looking for in this tool is that it should give me the list of all database objects where a particular column is being referenced.

Do you mean you are looking for a way to visualize foreign key constraints? Most DB tools out there can do this. squirrel sql is pretty good.

If you are looking for a tool that shows where a column appears in other database objects such as views and triggers, there isn't a tool that I can think of that does this. If this is what you were after you would probably have to write your own SQL queries against the database catalog.
