Mogwai ER Designer

Der Mogwai ER Designer ist ein ER Modellierungstool wie z.b. ERWin. Es ist Open Source und wird bei sourceforge.net gehostet. Das sagt die Webseite:

The Mogwai ERDesigner is a entity relation modeling tool such as ERWin and co. The only difference is that it is Open Source and does not cost anything. It was designed to make database modeling as easy as it can be and to support the developer in the whole development process, from database design to schema and code generation. This tool was also designed to support a flexible plug in architecture, to extend the system simply by installing a new plug in. This way, everybody can implement new features and tools to make ERDesigner fit the requirements.

Zwei SQL Developer?!

Seit einigen Monaten (Jahren?) stellt Oracle das Tool SQL Developer kostenlos zur Verfügung. Interessant dabei ist: Es gibt ein weiteres Java basierendes Query und Admin Tool mit gleichem Namen: SQL Developer – The Universal Database Frontend. Dieses Tool existiert bereits seit 2001! Hat sich hier der Stärkere einfache den Namen „genommen“?
