Data Types

Each column that you define in your data model has a data type that is appropriate to the information being stored by that column.

Enterprise Architect contains definitions of the core datatypes for a number of standard DBMS products. However, data types vary from one DBMS product to another, and they also vary between versions of a given database product. Therefore Enterprise Architect provides you with tools to:

·Define new data types for a new version of your DBMS product
·Define data types for a new, non-standard database product
·Automatically convert data types from one defined DBMS product to another
·Define how the automatic conversion should proceed from or to a non-standard DBMS product.
