DB Designer development team is proud to announce the completion of Oracle support. Users can now import Oracle scripts to design their database and vice versa.

Our online database design tool has supported forward engineering (Export) for Oracle since 2012. Our users have been requesting us to add support for Oracle reverse engineering (Import) and after working on it for past few months, we are happy to announce the new release.

DB Designer now supports both Forward and Reverse Engineering for Oracle in addition to MySQL and PostgreSQL. We also support Forward Engineering for MS SQL and SQLite and are actively working on adding reverse engineering support for both.

To import an Oracle or MySQL or PostgreSQL script into DB Designer, follow these simple steps:

Step 1 – Please open our online schema designer.

DB Designer Main Menu
DB Designer Main Menu

Step 2 – In main menu click on Schema > Import.

Import SQL Script For Reverse Engineering
Import SQL Script – DB Designer

Step 3 – On the import window, select either MySQL or PostgreSQL or Oracle and paste your script to let DB Designer do it’s job.

Select the script type and paste your SQL to import.

Once your script is imported, you will be able to design your database using our visual designer. When you are done, simply click on Export in the main menu to export ready to use SQL script or PDF/Image to share with others. 

In addition to the above, we have also fixed several outstanding bugs and made significant improvements. A new feature we released in our last update includes the capability of coloring the notes. 

To change the note color, simply right click on the note and select the color you like. You can also change the table color similarly, by right clicking on the table and selecting the color you like. Here is a quick visual of how to do this:

Right click on the note to change color.

We have been working hard in the background to improve the experience of our users and to give them all the features they need to get the job done. Over the next few weeks we will be releasing several exciting updates packed of features and significant improvements in user experience.

We appreciate your continued trust and value your feedback. Please contact us at [email protected] anytime with any questions, concerns or feedback. We’d love to hear from you and will do our best to accommodate your individual needs. We look forward to hearing from you. Thank you all
