DB Visualizer: quality of the data model

Hi Roger,

What's Minq Software's position with respect to supporting users
with the inspection of their models for quality criteria.

For example, in our projects we use naming standards for tables
and columns, but these standards are sometimes 'forgotten'...

Another example, some columns or tables that used to have a
purpose, but not anymore, need to be removed...

It would be helpful if users could be reminded of the fact that there is
something they could do to improve the quality of their data model...

Kind regards,

Hi Gian,

DbVisualizer currently does not support any convention checking or similar analysis.

Kind Regards,
I agree. Here's the link:
