There are plans in the pipeline to add such a feature.  :)

We envisage that when generating the DDL script, the user will have the option to generate an "ALTER" script instead.

EA will then connect to the target database through ODBC and make a comparison with existing objects and prompt the user to resolve any conflicts.

Any comments/suggestions would be appreciated.

InterBase and Firebird are not supported repositories.

1. Oracle seed script.  The necessary sequences for the repository are not in your script that you direct people to.  I've put together a script that creates them and I'd be willing to post it here for inclusion in updated scripts.

There's no need for sequences in the script. The Data Model Transfer deletes and recreates them on the fly.

You can export/import datatypes as follows...

Tools | Export Reference Data...

and select "Model Data Types - Code and DDL".

2. There's no way to specify the length of integers. Unfortunately I am a right awkward bugger because I like to work at int(10).

Add a new MySQL datatype...

INT - and give it length 10.

3. Also with integers, I have found no way of specifying them as unsigned.

Add a new MySQL datatype...


You can do this from Settings | Database Datatypes...



Datamodelling view support for SQL Server, Oracle and Sybase ASE will be available in version 6.5.

No ETA yet  :(

It sure would be nice if the Data Modeling in EA supported Views natively with SQL DLL generation, etc.  Are there any plans for this feature?

Yes - but I don't have an ETA.

Yes - use the 9i scripts to create the tables.

EA can be used with SQL Server 2005 Express as a repository. We have not come across any problems as yet.

EA is also capable of reverse engineering SQL Server 2005 Express, although thorough testing has not yet been completed.

EA is not yet able to import from ASE 12.5, but it is in the pipeline. As yet we do not have a delivery date.

1) how to include the 'ON DELETE CASCADE' clause of foreign key definition into generated DDL script for MS SQL Server?

Open Operation Properties (select the table and press F10). Highlight the FK operation and select the Extended Properties... button.

2) how to exlude the note text of an operation with stereotype <<trigger>>, to not appear in generated script?

Currently the note field is the trigger body. In the future the trigger body will be entered in the Initial Code field of the Behaviour tab, and the note field will become the trigger comment.
