Subject Re: generating documentation
Date Wed, 26 Jul 2006 13:58:49 GMT
Hi Achim,
thank you very much for your reply. SchemaSpy is a nice tool but does 
not suite our requirements.

The problem is that we are using different databases and can't store the 
comments for the tables / fields directly in the databases. So we want 
to generate the db-schema.xml using DdlUtils and add the description to 
the table / field definitions with an extra attribute (description / 
comment) manually. After that we want to generate a html / xdoc / pdf 
documentation on the basis of the edited db-schema.xml.
As you know without comments the database documentation is useless.

Do you have any ideas / suggestions how we could do this?

thx a lot
