Create a MariaDB Repository

Creating a MariaDB database is fully documented in the product information provided with your MariaDB installer or on the MariaDB website.

There are many ways to create a new MariaDB database. One common method is to use a SQL-based Management Console such as HeidiSQL, which provides a convenient graphical user interface to enable  creating databases, executing scripts, and performing backups and restores. However, the exact method used is not important to this discussion, therefore you are free to use the most convenient or familiar method at your disposal.

Having created your MariaDB database, use the MySQL SQL script provided by Sparx Systems to create the required table definitions for Enterprise Architect. The EASchema_1220_MySQL.sql script is freely available on the DBMS Based Repositories page on the Sparx Systems website.


  • Ensure that the collation is set to the alphabet you use, such as Latin or Cyrillic
