1.How can we see what are the foreign key defines in a table using the above tool. (im using 6.5)
2.Any other Open Source better tool for database table navigation other than DbVisualizer or is this the best?
I thought there was an FK or constraints tab; don't have it in front of me at the moment though.
Personally, I think DB Visualizer is pretty good, although I've only started evaluating it. I also use the DB tools bundled with various IDEs, and for the most part, they're just as good--I still haven't justified the cost of DB Visualizer yet, but I might be able to provide more info after a few days.
Foreign keys are listed in the "Constraints" tab, identifiable by the value "Foreign Key" in the CONSTRAINT_TYPE column.
In addition, in the "References" tab, it shows a graphical representation of relationships, and if "Links to Columns" is selected and the node content is set to "Columns", the foreign key relationships will be obvious graphically.
(Note that setting "Links to Columns" may cause layout issues in larger graphs, though.)
