Hi Tim,

I tried the GUI version of SchemaSpy and end up with some issues. May be I'll give a try on the command line tool.

Thanks for your time.

The command line tool can be tricky. The docs don't make it really plain how all the options go together, and it doesn't help that some of the options are wired into which database you're using. The MySQL one nearly drove me crazy getting right.

But the results are well worth it.

command line tool is paining a lot.... Anyway going to try hard....

Meanwhile i have also tried ER-DesingerNG Netbeans plugin... it works well too. However, there is no facility to include "Crows foot" notations in the plugin...
