Open source data modeling tools for PostgreSQL

P: n/a
Hi,

I am looking for an open source (free) data modeling tool for PostgreSQL.

It should - if possible - support:
- E-R-Modelling
- relational data model / modeling
- (GUI SQL interface to the database)
- platform independence (Win32, Mac, Unix/Linux)

Does anybody know some tools that match my criteria?

Thanks, Markus

TIP 9: the planner will ignore your desire to choose an index scan if your
joining column's datatypes do not match

There's apparently a tool called Umbrello, though it is a KDE-specific
toolkit, it apparently uses an XML format that's common to UML modellers.

http://uml.sourceforge.net/index.php

I know this isn't platform independent, but perhaps the XML format is
"portable" between UML modelling applications that are available on Windows?

That, or run Umbrello on a Un*x box, using the built-in Aqua X11 tool on
Mac OS X, the Free software XFree86/KDE3 on Un*x or a commercial product
like XWin32 for Windows (there's probably a XFree86 version available
for Cygwin under Windows if you look).

TIP 2: you can get off all lists at once with the unregister command
(send "unregister YourEmailAddressHere" to ma*******@postgresql.org)
